Professional football is an American sports obsession, but telling a football story through the eyes of a sports agent is under-exposed, at least according to the folks at Esquire Network, who came up with the television program: The Agent.
With a show like this, potentially full of hubris, there's little doubt that this programming idea came from an agent.
However, there will be a Bengals angle, according to the show's producers.
Esquire Network’s The Agent is featuring throughout its nine-week season notable NFL players, including Bengals cornerback and return specialist Adam Jones, who "play an integral role in the series" according to the network.
Here are some of the show's particulars:
WHAT: Behind every professional football player is an agent. Their clients make the plays on the field, but they help run the game off the field. With exclusive access beginning in September 2014, The Agent chronicles the journey leading up to the 2015 draft following four top agents. From contract negotiations, endorsement deals, recruiting, private clubs and training, to meetings with scouts and veteran players in the NFL, viewers will get raw insight into these behind-the-scenes business dealings. The relentless ambition, ruthless pressure and high-stakes of the pursuit to securing that top pick are revealed.
WHEN: Tuesdays at 10 EST.
