NESN continues to look for ways to capture the casual sports fan’s attention with the new series “After The Game,” set to debut on Friday, September 3, 2010 at 5:30 pm.
Described as a new “lifestyle” program, “After The Game” will “showcase the personal homes, lives, and philanthropic efforts of New England’s beloved athletes.”
The show is produced by Linda Pizzuti Henry – wife of Red Sox owner John Henry - and Kelly Boullet of Nacho Mama Productions. The series will be part of NESN’s new Made in New England programming lineup.
Each show highlights the rise to becoming a world-class athlete, an inside look at their living space in a “Cribs”-style tour, followed by a look at the charities that he or she is passionate about.
The first episode features Tim Wakefield walking viewers through his Florida home, explaining how he became the famous Red Sox knuckle-baller, and sharing why he takes time to support Space Coast Early Intervention Center and Pitching in for Kids– his primary philanthropic commitments.
Future episodes will feature Patrice Bergeron, Matt Light, David Ortiz, Bode Miller, Tom Werner, Kristine Lilly, Doug Flutie and others.
