Niners legend Joe Montana’s career getting docuseries treatment
Peacock Sports is apparently working on a docuseries focusing on former San Francisco 49ers legend and Hall of Fame quarterback Joe Montana.
The video streaming service, owned by NBCUniversal, announced Tuesday the docuseries will chart Montana’s path from his college days at Notre Dame to his ascendance with the 49ers and eventual induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. It will also include recollections from former coaches, teammates and even some celebrity figures:
“Peacock announced the development of a documentary about Joe Montana, one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time,” the release stated, via Awful Announcing. “The multipart series features Montana’s first-hand account of his career from earliest days as a high school All-American, to National Champion at Notre Dame and ultimately becoming a four-time Super Bowl winner and NFL Hall of Fame inductee.
“Contemporary celebrities, former teammates, coaches, and mentees also share their perspectives on what made Montana known as “the Comeback Kid” and “Joe Cool” on and off the field.
“The series is produced by NFL Films, the most-honored filmmaker in sports.”
Montana led one of the foremost NFL dynasties during his years with the 49ers. His clutch play under pressure and generally relaxed persona earned him the nickname “Joe Cool.”
The two-time NFL MVP led the 49ers to four Super Bowl titles, winning the MVP in three of those victories. He is still regarded as one of the best quarterbacks in league history.
Will this be Montana’s version of ESPN’s The Last Dance? Time will tell. But 49ers fans can start building in terms of anticipation ahead of the docuseries release.
