This series documents the undocumented first-hand account of Tom Brady’s journey through his ten Super Bowl appearances. Man in the Arena has been one of the most anticipated docuseries ever since the network first dropped its trailer early in May 2020.

Make way for ‘Man In The Arena Tom Brady’

“In a groundbreaking new series coming to ESPN+, Tom deconstructs the milestones of his legendary career, mining the psychological and emotional terrain of each victory and defeat,” ESPN wrote. “Each episode focuses on a single Super Bowl appearance and centers not just on the pivotal moments, but everything that leads to them, illustrating the series of small steps that seem insignificant at the time, but when reflected upon, show the distance traveled.”

What makes the show even more enticing is that the docuseries might be in the vein of ESPN’s highly successful “The Last Dance” on Michael Jordan, released in 2020. However, the documentary will be engaging to watch as each episode covers a different season of Tom chasing the glorifying Lombardi Trophy.

Honest Confessions

The glimpse shared by Brady comprises some of the best and honest confessions so far. Brady confessed that he never knew where New England was the day he got drafted in. While Michael Strahan mentioned that the only way to defeat the Patriots was to defeat Brad specifically. And Brady’s wife, Gisele Bündchen, said that he has a family that loves him. But at times, it was difficult to keep things in perspective.
