“What is there left to say about working with Tom? He is a never-ending narrative, but also a never-ending process of self-discovery for me and our creative team at Religion of Sports,” said director Gotham Chopra. “Because in Tom’s 23 year (and counting) odyssey, I see threads of all of our stories which is what has made this an amazing project to work on. We used to think of episode 10 as an epilogue, now - because I know how Tom operates - I realize it’s just a prequel.”
In episode 10, Brady leaves New England to start a new chapter with the Buccaneers. Joined by former teammate Rob Gronkowski in Tampa Bay, Brady captures his 7th Super Bowl title. As he reflects on life outside of football, Brady shares his hopes of living up to the example set by his hero, his father. The episode features exclusive interviews with Brady, as well as his father Tom Brady Sr. and teammate Rob Gronkowski. The docuseries is co-produced by ESPN, Religion of Sports, 199 Productions, and NFL Films.
