Netflix is teaming up with a champion QB.

The streaming giant’s coming series “Quarterback” will feature reigning MVP and Super Bowl MVP Patrick Mahomes, Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins, and Atlanta Falcons quarterback Marcus Mariota.

The three wore microphones throughout the most recent NFL season and were also filmed at home.

The series is being produced by Mahomes’ 2PM Productions, with help from NFL Films and Peyton Manning’s Omaha Productions.

“From welcoming home a new baby in the middle of the season to welcoming the Lombardi Trophy back to Kansas City, our crew was there for it all,” said Mahomes.

The docuseries is the latest move by Netflix in its ongoing commitment to behind-the-scenes sports programming. After the breakout success of the Formula 1-focused “Drive to Survive,” Netflix has collaborated with Box to Box on similar series on tennis, “Break Point,” and golf, “Full Swing.”

The company currently has at least 42 sports documentaries.

The streaming giant has still never broadcast live sports, though it remains open to the idea, should an opportunity it deems profitable come along. 

Netflix reportedly bid on Formula 1 rights, which were ultimately retained by Disney in the most recent negotiations, and looked into buying the World Surf League.
