The Manning brothers are finally teaming up.
On Monday, The Walt Disney Company and ESPN announced that Peyton and his brother Eli Manning will pair together to call what is described as an "alternate" telecast of its flagship NFL program Monday Night Football.
The Monday Night Football "MegaCast" will air on ESPN2 for 10 games in each of the next three seasons and will feature current and former NFL players and celebrities joining the Manning brothers on the broadcast.
On ESPN/ABC, Steve Levy, Louis Riddick Jr., and Brian Griese will call the traditional Monday night games.
"This partnership with ESPN and The Walt Disney Company reflects an ongoing, shared commitment to offering fans fun, innovative content," Peyton Manning said in a statement. "ESPN+ has been a terrific partner for Omaha Productions [Manning's production company] as we built out The Places franchise and we're excited to co-create a new MegaCast format that will have something for everyone."
The Manning's "MegaCast" will air the first three weeks of this season, with the remaining seven weeks to be announced. It can be watched live on ESPN2 and be streamed on ESPN+ while the standard broadcast will still be on ESPN or ABC.
"Offering multiple 'Monday Night Football' viewing options for the next three seasons continues our innovation efforts and provides additional value for our fans," said Jimmy Pitaro, Chairman of ESPN and Sports Content. "Peyton and Eli will bring a different approach, delving into conversation about broader, big-picture topics while also honing in on the game, much like fans do when watching with their family and friends."
The Mannings each won two Super Bowls during their careers. Next month, Peyton Manning will be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, while Eli Manning waits after retiring in 2019 following 16 seasons with the New York Giants.
