SMAC Productions and Fubo Studios are set to co-produce an eight-part documentary series on the evolution of the Black quarterback in America.

The docuseries will feature former quarterback Michael Vick in conversation with former and current football players and coaches, including Patrick Mahomes, Cam Newton, Tony Dungy, Andy Reid and Doug Williams. Vick will also speak with celebrities, journalists and cultural figures about their perspective of the game and evolving culture.

“I’m excited to be a part of this project because as a kid, I just wanted to have a shot at playing in the National Football League. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would be the first African American quarterback drafted #1. I know that was a big step for us in society,” Vick said in a statement. “I was always told that I revolutionized the quarterback position, but I also like to give credit to the ones who I idolized as a kid and who paved the way like Randall Cunningham, Steve McNair and Donovan McNabb. When you look at the evolution of the quBlack arterback, it’s because of the people that came before us. And now, I’m thankful for the dual threat concept that has changed the game for the better.”
