Apple TV+ has revealed the more than 60 contributors who sat down for the 10-part documentary series, The Dynasty: New England Patriots, premiering globally on Friday, February 16.
The series offers an insider’s perspective on the franchise’s 20-year journey as one of the most dominant NFL teams. Combining never-before-seen footage and on-the-field action with these first-person insights, the series puts a spotlight on the unique chemistry that fueled the Patriots’ domination in the sport and the internal strife that sparked a turf war.
Directed by Emmy-winning filmmaker Matthew Hamachek (Tiger), The Dynasty: New England Patriots chronicles the rise and historic 20-year run of the Patriots during the Tom Brady, Bill Belichick, and Robert Kraft era. The docuseries is based on the critically acclaimed New York Times bestselling book of the same title by author Jeff Benedict.
The series goes deeper, drawing on thousands of hours of never-before-seen video footage and audio files from the Patriots organization’s archive. In addition to interviews with past and present Patriots players, coaches, and executives, the unparalleled access includes Kraft, Belichick, Brady, and confessionals from league officials and the archrivals of this dominant sports dynasty.
The documentary series, which is produced by Imagine Documentaries, is executive produced by Brian Grazer, Ron Howard, Sara Bernstein, Justin Wilkes, and Jeff Benedict, along with Matthew Hamachek, who also serves as director.
Miranda Johnson-Smith, Meredith Kaulfers, and Jonna McLaughlin are co-executive producers. Apple TV+ and Imagine Documentaries most recently released the acclaimed four-part docuseries The Super Models last year.
Following the February 16 premiere, two new episodes will debut each week through March 15, looking back on the thrill ride of the New England Patriots dynasty, giving new insights on everything from the team’s six Super Bowl wins to headline-grabbing stories that swirled around them – including Spygate, Deflategate, and the Aaron Hernandez trial – and more conflicts that never left the locker room.
The notable current and former NFL players and coaches, fans and family, NFL and Patriots executives, and members of the press who sat down to tell the definitive story of the team’s remarkable reign are as follows.
