Can't get enough of Amon-Ra St. Brown? You're about to get a lot more.
The Lions' star wide receiver will be featured on Netflix's sequel to its hit show 'Quarterback,' according to the Detroit News. A camera crew from NFL Films has been shadowing St. Brown for the past several months.
Season 1 of 'Quarterback' followed the lives of Patrick Mahomes, Kirk Cousins and Marcus Mariota throughout the 2022 season, giving fans a behind-the-scenes look at what it's like to play the most important position in the NFL -- on and off the field. The players were mic'd up for each game and allowed the camera crews into their homes.
The show was well received, but several high-profile quarterbacks declined to be featured this season, including the Lions' Jared Goff and ex-Lion Matthew Stafford. Goff said this summer that he "considered it,” but decided against it for “a multitude of reasons."
"I really don’t know if it’s as distracting as people may think, the way that they do it, but just wasn’t the right fit for me this year," he said. "Maybe one day.”
It appears Netflix is pivoting to a new position. St. Brown, given his backstory as the son of two-time Mr. Universe bodybuilder John Brown and a fourth-round pick who can recite the names of all the receivers drafted before him, should make for good material. He's also having the best season of his career on a team that's gunning for its first division title in 30 years.
The camera crew should be with St. Brown for the rest of the ride.
Season 2 of the show has yet to be officially announced, but is likely to air in the summer of 2024.
