The behind-the-scenes look at the Michigan football program’s 2017 season, beginning with the team’s week-long trip to Rome last April, through preseason camp, the regular season and bowl game, will launch on Amazon Prime Video on April 6.

This unscripted series — part of Amazon’s “All or Nothing” series — followed players and coaches in their everyday lives on and off the field and gives viewers an inside look at the team, the games, practices, and classes, among other things. Cameras and microphones followed the team constantly.

There are eight episodes that run close to an hour and one episode of bonus features, and Amazon Prime will be releasing all at once for prime binge watching, it was announced Tuesday.

The project was produced in partnership with Jim Jordan Productions, The Montag Group and BTN originals. Michigan was paid $2.25 million for the all-access peek into the world of the football program, and it was earmarked for the renovations at Schembechler Hall, including the new weight room.

This was the first time a video crew has had behind-the-scenes access to the Michigan football program and the first university to be featured in Amazon’s “All or Nothing” series. The Arizona Cardinals and Los Angeles Rams have previously been featured.
