As part of its partnership with the New York Giants, Dunkin' will now be the presenting sponsor of both the "The Eli Manning Show" and the digital shorts "Eli's Extras."
Since its debut earlier in the season, the 8-episode series — which is hosted by Eli Manning and explores the connection between Big Blue and celebrity fans, influencers and athletes — has become a hit across Giants digital platforms. Episode 1, which included Michael Strahan and Peyton and Cooper Manning as guests, is the most-watched video of 2021 on the Giants YouTube Channel.
"Dunkin' has long been a proud partner of the New York Giants, and we're excited to sponsor this entertaining show featuring one of the greatest players ever to wear the Giants uniform and his incredible lineup of guests inside and outside the world of sports," said Tara Carson, Director of Field Marketing at Dunkin'.
In addition, Eli has given fans a peek into his private life as a retired quarterback and full-time dad through a digital short called "Eli's Extras." These out-of-studio fun and humorous segments showcase his favorite hobbies, foods and interests.
"We are thrilled to bring Dunkin' onboard as the first-ever sponsor of 'The Eli Manning Show.' The synergies across brand and content development are authentic to the heart and humor of the show. It's all about being innovative, and Dunkin's integrations reflect that," said Jessica Slenker, Giants Vice President of Partnership Strategy & Activation.
After dining with cast members from "The Sopranos" in last week's "Eli's Extras" installment, the next guest on "The Eli Manning Show" is actor and comedian Tracy Morgan. A diehard Eli and Giants fan, Morgan talks about his influences and how he got his start in comedy. The two also play a game to reveal secrets of their past and discuss the creation of Morgan's show "The Last O.G." on TBS.
