Apple orders New England Patriots docuseries
February 16, 2022
Apple has ordered The Dynasty, a new documentary event series about NFL team the New England Patriots, from Brian Grazer and Ron Howard’s Imagine Documentaries, in association with NFL Films.
The 10-part docuseries is based on the critically-acclaimed New York Times bestselling book by author Jeff Benedict. With unprecedented access to the New England Patriots, Benedict spent two years inside the organisation, and chronicled the rise and historic 20-year run of the Patriots during the Brady-Belichick-Kraft era. The documentary series, directed by Emmy-nominated filmmaker Matthew Hamachek, will go deeper, drawing on thousands of hours of never-before-seen video footage and audio files from the Patriots organisation’s archive.
The filmmakers have also been given access to the organisation during the 2021 season and are conducting hundreds of interviews with past and present Patriots players, coaches and executives, along with league officials and the arch rivals of the most dominant sports dynasty of the 21st century.
The documentary series, which is produced by Imagine Documentaries in association with NFL Films, is executive produced by Grazer, Howard, Sara Bernstein, Justin Wilkes and Jenna Millman, along with Hamachek and Benedict. Miranda Johnson serves as the co-executive producer.
