Michael Vick Docuseries On The Evolution Of Black NFL Quarterbacks On The Way
Michael Vick docuseries is shining a spotlight on Black Quarterbacks, past and present, in the NFL.
Currently, the NFL is shaking things up with several Black Quarterbacks at the helm.
Patrick Mahomes, Lamar Jackson, Jalen Hurts, Justin Fields, to name a few.
According to Variety, Michael Dwayne Vick, former NFL quarterback himself, is bringing the doc to fruition.
Vick’s Fubo Studios and SMAC Productions are co-producing the project.
The event will span over eight episodes on the evolution of the Black Quarterback in America.
Featured in the series, Michael is speaking with Mahomes, Cam Newton, Tony Dungy, Andy Reid, and Doug Williams.
Also, other celebrities, journalists, cultural figures, and more will be discussing the topic.
Vick himself was drafted professionally in the NFL in 2001.
In fact, he was the first black quarterback to be chosen in Round 1, pick #1.
Speaking on this new project, this is what he has to say –
“I’m excited to be a part of this project because as a kid, I just wanted to have a shot at playing in the National Football League. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would be the first African American quarterback drafted #1. I know that was a big step for us in society.”
“I was always told that I revolutionized the quarterback position, but I also like to give credit to the ones who I idolized as a kid and who paved the way like Randall Cunningham, Steve McNair and Donovan McNabb. When you look at the evolution of the Black quarterback, it’s because of the people that came before us. And now, I’m thankful for the dual threat concept that has changed the game for the better.”
While still in the planning stages, Vick is slated as Executive Producer, along with Kijafa Vick, and Constance Schwartz-Morini of SMAC Productions.
Additionally, David Gandler and Pamela Duckworth repping Fubo Studios are serving as Executive Producers.
The Fubo Studios (a production arm of FuboTV) is a new venture, and this project is the first under the new establishment.
