ESPN+ announced season two of its series UNINTERRUPTED's More Than An Athlete will focus on Pro Football Hall of Famer Michael Strahan. The four-part season will deep dive into Strahan's journey, beginning with his childhood in Germany and following him through his football career and evolution into a media personality and entrepreneur, highlighting his successes and failures along the way.

The season will provide an intimate view of Strahan's NFL career, his intense work schedule, constant travel, his aptitude to stay authentic and his ever-evolving ability to balance his personal life while taking on so many business endeavors. Pairing never-before-seen archival footage from Strahan's life, alongside intimate conversations with family and friends, viewers will get a vulnerable look at America's favorite broadcaster, powerhouse media entrepreneur and Hall of Famer on his improbable transformation into more than an athlete.

Said Strahan: "The show pulls back the curtain on my journey to this point in my career. I'm continuously energized by the different business areas that I'm focused on, and I'm looking forward to showing people a side of me they haven't seen before." ​​

After a 15-year, Hall of Fame football career, Strahan pivoted to his next play, finding success as a broadcaster, producer and entrepreneur. He currently serves as co-host of "Good Morning America," is an analyst for "Fox NFL Sunday," and is host of the primetime game show $100,000 Pyramid on ABC. As a businessman, Strahan, with his longtime friend and partner Constance Schwartz-Morini, established SMAC Entertainment, a multi-faceted company focusing on talent management, content development and production, and business incubation. Together, they launched the Michael Strahan lifestyle brand which includes men's and boy's tailored, athleisure, sportwear, denim, basics, luggage, shoes and more.
