A new documentary series delving into the personal life of star quarterback Tom Brady is set to premiere on social media later this month.
"Tom vs Time," a six-episode series, was filmed by Gotham Chopra for Facebook's video platform, Facebook Watch, and will focus on the New England Patriots star quarterback preparing for the 2017 season, exploring his battle against time on the gridiron, along with how he balances his personal life.
In a statement, Brady said a project of this nature has weighed on his mind for a while, and the opportunity came up to partner with Facebook and Chopra.

"I think we captured something special in this and I am proud of the entire team of people who worked hard to make it happen," he said. "The docu-series is intimate, in-depth and more personal than anything I've released on my social channels, so I think it will be a great way of extending my reach to people on Facebook Watch."
For his part, Chopra said the goal of the project "was to understand the anatomy of that greatness," Brady has exhibited on the field over the past 18 seasons.
"To get an inside look and see that he's not some alien or genetic freak, but that there's a relentlessness and a humanity to his training -- physically, mentally, spiritually -- and that it truly takes a village with equally impassioned teammates, coaches, and family members, it actually makes his success that much more impressive," Chopra said in a statement.
Although an exact release date has not been announced, the New York Times reports fans will have a chance to watch the series beginning later in January. Fans eager to see the docu-series can follow the "Tom vs Time" Facebook page, where they can then add it to Facebook's Watchlist.
The Patriots will play the Tennessee Titans on Saturday, Jan. 13, at Gillette Stadium in the AFC divisional playoff round as the team continues its quest for a sixth Super Bowl championship.
