Back by popular demand, the Giants are excited to announce the return of "The Eli Manning Show" for a second season, presented by Prizm Trading Cards, one of Panini America's most popular NFL trading card brands.
The premiere episode of "The Eli Manning Show" is now streaming on the Giants YouTube Channel and features Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney. The duo sits down with Eli at a New York City bar and share the story behind how they came to own a Welsh "football" club as documented in FX's "Welcome to Wrexham," airing on Wednesdays on FX and streaming on Hulu.
"What makes this show fun is getting to know how these celebrities and influencers became great at their craft," Eli Manning said. "All the guests also have a huge passion for sports, and I am excited to share their stories with the fans."
"The Eli Manning Show," produced in-house by the Giants, is an eight-episode series hosted by two-time Super Bowl MVP Eli Manning and runs throughout the 2022 NFL season. The show explores the connection between the Giants and celebrity fans, influencers, and athletes. Manning's former center and best friend, Shaun O'Hara, will once again serve as co-host.
"We are excited to build off the momentum from the first season of "The Eli Manning Show" after viewership across our digital platforms exceeded expectations," Giants Chief Business Officer, Pete Guelli said. "Season 2 promises to be even better with all new segments and more celebrity guests scheduled to appear."
"We are excited to partner with the Giants and Eli Manning as they take this show to new heights in the second season. Eli was incredible on the field, and now the world is seeing him in a new light," said Jason Howarth, Vice President of Marketing at Panini America. "Integrating our most popular NFL trading card brand, Prizm, while connecting the Giants in pop culture was a compelling fit as our Prizm brand continues to grow."
