A behind-the-scenes, all-access chronicling of this Michigan football season will be released as a documentary series on Amazon Prime in January 2018.
Michigan, The Montag Group, Big Ten Network and Amazon have partnered for this project, Michigan’s athletic department announced Tuesday.
“We are proud to partner with Amazon Prime Video in documenting our University of Michigan student-athletes' daily experiences and the lifelong lessons learned both on the football field and in the classroom,” Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh said in a release. “We welcome judgement! We embrace this opportunity to showcase our 2017 University of Michigan football team to a vast audience around the world.”
Cameras have had access to players and coaches, and the players said they like the concept.
“I think it’s a pretty cool thing we’re doing,” freshman receiver Tarik Black said Tuesday. “When I was a kid, I used to watch shows like this. Now that I’m going to be a part of one, I’m embracing it. It’s pretty fun.”
Prime members will be able to stream the series exclusively via the Amazon Prime Video app for TVs, connected devices including Fire TV, mobile devices and online. Members can also download the series to mobile devices for offline viewing at no additional cost to their membership. The series will be a global release and available onPrimeVideo.com for Prime Video members in more than 200 countries and territories.
