Patriots coach Bill Belichick will be featured in a two-part documentary that will air on the NFL Network next month.
Belichick became the first ever coach to be wired for an entire season in 2009 by NFL Films and that footage will be included in a two-part series called "Bill Belichick: A Football Life," which will air Sept 15 (9 p.m.) and Sept. 22. (10 p.m.)
The on and off the field footage will be a look back at the Patriots 50th Anniversary season, and Belichick's 35th consecutive year in the NFL.
“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 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.”
More details from the release:
Actor Josh Charles (CBS’ The Good Wife) lends his voice to the two-part documentary that begins with Belichick spending his last day of the offseason in Nantucket before reporting to training camp the following day. The 2009 Patriots, who welcomed the return of QB Tom Brady, faced a number of personnel changes from the front office to the field. Bill Belichick: A Football Life chronicles Belichick through the season in a variety of roles and situations including his last trip to Giants Stadium, game planning with quarterback Tom Brady, lighter moments with members of his team and family, and a look inside Belichick’s childhood during a visit with mother, Jeannette.
