The NFL Network and NFL Films have collaborated on two-part documentary featuring New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick. Belichick was wired for the entire 2009 season as part of the project. Belichick is the first person to be wired by NFL Films for an entire season.
Bill Belichick: A Football Life will debut on the NFL Network on Thursday, September 15th at 9:00p.m. ET. Part two will air Thursday, September 22nd at 10:00p.m. ET.
“Bill Belichick doesn’t only make history – he studies it; he understands his place in it; and he appreciates our desire to capture it,” said NFL Films President Steve Sabol in a press release. “Like Vince Lombardi’s Packers in 1967, Belichick and the Patriots gave us access to his football life and what we created is a portrait of the coach, the father, the taskmaster – and most importantly – the man.”
“It is beyond measure what NFL Films has done to promote football, preserve its history and entertain generations of us who love the game,” said Belichick. “When the legendary coach of the NFL Films team, Steve Sabol, approached us about capturing our 50th anniversary season in 2009, it was an honor to participate.”
