Pick No. 199 overall in the 2000 NFL draft is launching a multi-platform production company with a fitting name.
According to Mike Fleming Jr. of Deadline, Tom Brady has started “199 Productions,” which will produce documentaries, feature films and television shows.
The initial project in the works is called “Unseen Football.”
Brady has partnered with AGBO Films and “Avengers: Endgame” directors Joe and Anthony Russo to produce. Religion of Sports co-founder Gotham Chopra, who served as the executive producer for the Facebook Watch docuseries “Tom vs. Time,” will reportedly direct.
“I’m excited to announce to the world the official launch of 199 Productions,” Brady announced Monday on Instagram. “When I was the 199th draft pick in 2000, I knew I needed to work hard every day to prove myself. Launching a production company is no different and I’m humbled to have the opportunity to partner with @therussobrothers, @agbofilms and @gchopra on our first project ‘Unseen Football.’ I believe in the essence of teamwork, and I have no doubt, our 199 Productions team and partners will create inspiring content to share with the world. Stay tuned.. exciting times are ahead, both on and off the field.”
Per Deadline, multiple upcoming projects will include Brady in front of the camera, guiding stories ranging from sports and entertainment to health and wellness.
The 42-year-old New England Patriots quarterback is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent on March 18.
