Weekly Series from NFL Films Premieres This Fall

New York, NY - May 7, 2019 - Premium television network EPIX(R) and NFL Films will team up this fall on the weekly series NFL: The Grind, premiering Wednesday, September 11 at 9pm eastern time and airing for 17 episodes throughout the entirety of the 2019 NFL season.

In addition to a weekly deep dive into the games, each episode will feature original field pieces - each hosted by an NFL veteran - that will give fans an inside look behind the grind, documenting never-before-told stories of NFL players, coaches and more as they navigate the season.

Said Michael Wright, President, EPIX, "At EPIX, we strive to tell compelling stories viewers won't find anywhere else, and we're thrilled to do that with The Grind, going deep behind the scenes of one of America's most beloved sports, as only NFL Films can.

"NFL Films is thrilled to join the EPIX family and thankful for their trust in us," said Ken Rodgers, NFL Films Vice President, Senior Coordinating Producer. "The Grind is a new step in our storytelling evolution - inside access of the NFL's biggest stories, delivered by true insiders who know the game best. We can't wait to work with EPIX throughout the 2019 season."
