While there were a shortage of NFL starting quarterbacks willing to participate in a second season of Omaha Productions/NFL Films’ Quarterback series, leading to them pivoting to Receiver instead, one quarterback now entering the league will be starring in a different docuseries. Creative studio Bolt TV announced Monday that they have a docuseries coming called Grit & Glory: Journey To The Draft, spotlighting new Denver Broncos’ quarterback Bo Nix from his declaration for the NFL Draft through the NFL Combine and his pro day at Oregon through exclusive access to his draft party. Here’s a trailer they put out this weekend:

And here’s more on what’s planned there from a release:

“As a kid I always wanted to know how the quarterbacks I looked up to prepared for the NFL draft,” said Nix. “This is an opportunity to do just that — to share my process with the next generation and provide some insights that hopefully will help in their journey.”

The series chronicles Bo Nix and his journey from Auburn where he won SEC Freshman of the Year, defeated Alabama in the Iron Bowl, met his now-wife, Izzy, and experienced transformative seasons at the University of Oregon. Additionally, the series dives deep into Bo’s Combine and Pro Day training with coaches from QB Country David Morris and Ben Neill along with exclusive access inside his draft day party with close family and friends. Interviews include Bo Nix, Dan Lanning, David Morris, Kenny Dillingham, Tez Johnson, and Patrick and Krista Nix.

“I’m so grateful to be partnering with Bolt TV to share this story and truly feel they’ve become part of my team. From day one, they’ve been committed to getting this right and telling an authentic story.” says Nix.

“My goal from the beginning was to create a series where fans could connect with their favorite athletes” says director Nate Simmons. “Bo has a story that needs to be told.”

Nix was selected 12th overall by the Denver Broncos Thursday, the last in a remarkable run of six quarterbacks in the top 12 picks (and 14 offensive players in the top 14). As noted, that followed his college career at Auburn and then Oregon. It’s interesting to see him spotlighted in a docuseries like this, and one from a relatively-new company, but a relatively-prominent one; Simmons founded Bolt TV in 2019, but has already worked with athletes such as Patrick Mahomes, Aaron Donald, and James Harden. We’ll see how this turns out; a release date has not yet been announced.
