SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--(NASDAQ: AMZN)—Amazon today announced that following the success of the Emmy-winning All or Nothing NFL series, Prime Video is launching additional sports programming on the service underneath the All or Nothing umbrella. These upcoming series will share the creative excellence of the All or Nothing brand, offering unprecedented access to a team’s entire season, character-driven storytelling and compelling visuals.
All or Nothing: The Michigan Wolverines, narrated by award-winning actor/producer Mark Harmon (NCIS), premieres on Friday, April 6, exclusively on Prime Video. All eight episodes will be available on that date. The series allows Prime members into the never-before-seen inner workings of the winningest program in college football, chronicling Michigan’s 2017 season. The cameras follow Coach Jim Harbaugh in his third season leading his alma mater’s storied program through triumphs, trials and tribulations as they play in the Big Ten, one of the toughest college football conferences in the nation. The series also provides an intimate look at the lives, both on and off the field, of the student athletes charged with carrying on Michigan’s legacy.
All or Nothing: New Zealand All Blacks follows New Zealand Rugby’s famed All Blacks throughout 2017. The series provides a look inside the world of the players, coaches and the support team that sits behind them through the season, on and off the field. Prime members will get to see what makes them so successful and what it means in this rugged sport to undertake the responsibility of donning the black jersey and performing the sacred Haka.
All or Nothing: Manchester City shows fans the historic Club’s behind-the-scenes action, its legendary coach, Pep Guardiola, and the personal stories of the players who are currently at the top of the English Premier League table. Guardiola was one of the best players and coaches of his generation, having won three Champions League titles during his time at FC Barcelona. He joined Manchester City in 2016, coaching stars such as Sergio Aguero, Gabriel Jesus and Kevin de Bruyne.
“Prime Video prides itself on offering incredibly compelling sports content with unprecedented access,” said Heather Schuster, Head of Unscripted, Amazon Originals. “We are able to put cameras in places where none have gone before to give Prime members an inside look at some of the most storied sports programs in the world. It only made sense to bring these series under the All or Nothing banner to reinforce our commitment to strong storytelling in this genre.”
The NFL installment of All or Nothing, produced by NFL Films, serves as the cornerstone of the brand, and returns for its third season Friday, April 27, featuring the 2017 Dallas Cowboys.
All or Nothing: The Michigan Wolverines is executive produced by Sandy Montag (Perfect in ’76), Jim Jorden, Kirk Reynolds and Ron Lynn, and produced by BTN Originals and The Montag Group. Consulting producers are Paul Camarata and Keith Cossrow.
All or Nothing: New Zealand All Blacks is produced by Mother Media Group in conjunction with Warner Brothers New Zealand and Pango Productions, and executive producers Eden Gaha, Greg Heathcote, and Bailey Mackey.
All or Nothing: Manchester City is a collaboration between MEDIAPRO, Prime Video, Manchester City, IMG, and Film45.
