Just over a week before he competes for his sixth Super Bowl title, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is giving fans a window into his private life starting on Thursday on Facebook Watch, the social media company’s new platform for original video content.
The first of six episodes of the documentary series “Tom vs Time” was available as of noon on the show’s Facebook page.
The series, created by Boston-born filmmaker Gotham Chopra, looks at Brady’s competitive drive, his family life, and the sacrifices demanded of top athletes.
The trailer for the series features clips of Brady in games, in practice, and at home with his family. It opens with a voiceover by Brady, who asks, “What are you willing to do, and what are you willing to give up, to be the best you can be?”
“You only have so much energy, and the clock’s ticking on all of us. If you’re going to compete against me, you better be willing to give up your life. Because I’m giving up mine.”
