Receiver to be Produced by NFL Films, Omaha Productions and 2PM Productions, the Team Behind Hit Series Quarterback

Today, Netflix announced its newest sports series that follows pass catchers during the NFL 2023-24 season: Davante Adams (Las Vegas Raiders), Justin Jefferson (Minnesota Vikings), George Kittle (San Francisco 49ers), Deebo Samuel (San Francisco 49ers), and Amon-Ra St. Brown (Detroit Lions).

Logline: It's been said that there's no more difficult position in the NFL than the quarterback. But throwing the pass is only half the story. Receiver follows five of the NFL's best pass catchers throughout the 2023 season on and off the field: Davante Adams, Justin Jefferson, George Kittle, Deebo Samuel and Amon-Ra St. Brown.

Receiver is set to premiere in Summer 2024 as a continuation of Netflix's partnership with the NFL that first began with Quarterback, which hit the Netflix Global Top 10 for three weeks.

Production Company: NFL Films, Omaha Productions and 2PM Productions

Format: 8 x 45 minute episodes

Executive Producers: Peyton Manning and Jamie Horowitz for Omaha Productions; Ross Ketover, Pat Kelleher and Keith Cossrow for NFL Films; Patrick Mahomes and Jacquelyn Dahl from 2PM Productions.

The natural progression is from a pass to a catch, so we're excited to dive into the Receiver world after the success of our Quarterback series, said Gabe Spitzer, Vice President, Nonfiction Sports, Netflix. NFL Films, Omaha Productions and 2PM Productions have delivered again in finding unique and dynamic athletes who will further highlight the drama of this sport on and off the field.

We were thrilled last summer to see audiences all over the world diving into the lives of NFL quarterbacks, said Joe Zucco, NFL Films Supervising Producer. We believe the extraordinary skills, dedication and passion of the NFL's great wide receivers - and one tight end - will make a perfect follow-up.

We are excited to be working again with Netflix and NFL Films to give fans unprecedented access to what it's like to play receiver at the highest level, said Peyton Manning. As we did with Quarterback, we look forward to telling the stories of five incredible receivers, each with their unique personality, skillset, and motivation for what drives them to be the best.

Netflix is the premier home for great sports stories as these series join Netflixs lineup of sports programming, including recent releases like Quarterback, Formula 1: Drive To Survive, Full Swing, NASCAR: Full Speed, Untold, Tour de France: Unchained, Under Pressure: The U.S. Women's World Cup Team, Six Nations: Full Contact and more. Netflix has partnered with sports leagues including Formula 1, National Football League (NFL), the PGA TOUR, Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP), Womens Tennis Association (WTA), F d ration internationale de football association (FIFA), World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) and more.
