Julian Edelman has a pretty good year so far. In January, he played a key role in the New England Patriots reaching the Super Bowl for the fourth time in the last five years. In February, he was named the game’s most valuable player for his 10-catch, 121-yard performance. And just last month, he signed a two-year, $18 million contract extension that will keep him in New England through the 2021 season.
And now, Edelman’s life and career will be the subject of a new documentary produced by Showtime as the 33-year-old announced via Instagram:

I’m excited to finally announce my new feature documentary, 100%: Julian Edelman on @Showtime. Keeping this project under wraps has been tough, a lot of highs, a lot of lows, a lot of surreal moments. Just glad we had a camera rolling so we could make this thing our way. #100PercentFilm #
I’m excited to finally announce my new feature documentary, 100%: Julian Edelman on @Showtime. Keeping this project under wraps has been tough, a lot of highs, a lot of lows, a lot of surreal moments. Just glad we had a camera rolling so we could make this thing our way.
The documentary 100%: Julian Edelman is expected to show the wide receiver’s recovery from a torn ACL suffered in August 2017 and follow him all the way to the Super Bowl just seventeen months removed from the season-long injury. Along the way Edelman’s unique career from college quarterback to seventh-round draft selection by the Patriots to Tom Brady’s go-to wide receiver and three-time world champion will also be chronicled.
“When injury and controversy threatened Julian Edelman’s NFL career, he returned to his father, an auto mechanic, to fix what was broken,” Showtime released in a statement about the show. “100% is an intimate behind the scenes look at the three-time Super Bowl Champion during a critical juncture in his life. [...] The film joins Edelman as he attempts to overcome the challenge of a season ending surgery and PED suspension all while exposing the unorthodox origins that built him into one of the NFL’s most affable stars.”
Like Brady’s Tom vs Time, which was released last year, the show will be must-watch television for Patriots fans. 100%: Julian Edelman is scheduled to premiere on Friday, June 28 at 9:00 p.m. ET.
