Eli Manning announces new show on ESPN+
A few months ago, legendary Giants quarterback Eli Manning hinted at some upcoming projects with ESPN. On Monday, he shed some light on that.
Manning announced on Twitter that he will be going back to college next season to tell some of college football's greatest stories in a new show on ESPN+ called "Eli's Places".
"Eli's Places" is a college football version of older brother Peyton's show on ESPN+, which revisits important moments in NFL history through discussions with former players, coaches and other key figures. "Peyton's Places" was renewed for a third season several months ago.
"I decided to go back to school..." Manning said to Peyton in a promotional video for ESPN. "I'm going to the biggest universities and I'm going to get the greatest stars to show me the most iconic places in college football history."
In addition to "Eli's Places", Manning has also filmed a few episodes of "Detail" on ESPN+ where he broke down the film of Ohio State QB Justin Fields and Alabama QB Mac Jones.
Some former teammates and sports personalities shared their excitement regarding Manning's news.
