Report: USFL To Launch Weekly TV Series on Fox

Variety reports that the USFL will be launching weekly documentary series on Fox as part of its 2022 season. The show will air before games during the season.

“United By Football,” a 13-episode documentary series produced by the league, NFL Films and Fox Sports, will try to give fans a feel for what happens as cadre of hopeful athletes compete in the USFL, a new league controlled by Fox that will have its games broadcast on both the Fox and NBC broadcast networks. The one-hour series premiere will debut at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 16 on Fox leading into the league’s first game of the season between the New Jersey Generals and the Birmingham Stallions at 7:30 p.m.”

The report says that there will be 12 half-hour episodes that will debut on Fox before most of the USFL games. Encore of the shows will appear on FS1. 

“United by Football” will start in Birmingham with the inaugural USFL Player Draft held in February of this year, and move through training camps and a 10-week regular-season. The series will conclude with the USFL Championship game in Canton, Ohio, where a winner will be crowned on July 3 in the shadow of the Pro Football Hall of Fame. The series will focus expressly on the players and coaches, their journeys, and will not have any narration. NFL Films cameras will have unfettered access, placing robotic cameras in team meeting rooms and enlisting players and coaches to wear microphones during practices and games. In addition, embedded crews will be with all eight teams.

We will have more details on this when they are available. Interesting that NFL films is involved as well.
