Premieres Friday, October 16 at 9 PM ET/PT on Showtime
"Play It Forward," from executive producer Michael Strahan, is a rousing portrait of All-American NFL tight end Tony Gonzalez and his older brother, Chris. Over the course of a year near the end of his Hall-of-Fame career, Tony puts his heart on the line to achieve the one dream that has always eluded him: Super Bowl glory.
At the same time, Chris, whose own football aspirations were thwarted by an injury, works to realize his very different ambition of becoming a professional firefighter. Equally full of heart and tension, Play It Forward is an uplifting and entertaining look at these two brothers, driven both on and off the field. The film, which was screened at the Tribeca Film Festival earlier this year, is directed and written by Andrea Blaugrand Nevins, produced by Cristan Crocker-Reilly and in addition to Strahan, is also executive produced by Constance Schwartz.
