A month after the New England Patriots' crushing Super Bowl loss, the final installment in a six-part documentary series delving into the personal life of quarterback Tom Brady is finally set for release.
"Tom vs Time," filmed by Gotham Chopra for Facebook's video platform, Facebook Watch, focuses on the star quarterback preparing for the 2017 season, exploring his battle against time on the gridiron and how he balances his personal life.
The sixth episode was originally slated for release soon after the Super Bowl. But Chopra decided to shake things up after the Patriots lost to the Philadelphia Eagles. A preview of the final episode, set to be released Monday, shows Brady sitting on his coach, talking about the Super Bowl loss.
In-depth news coverage of the Greater Boston Area.
"I'm feeling um... it's a loaded question," Brady said. "You play the game to be in those moments, and you play those games to have the chance to win the Super Bowl, and when you don't come through, it's very painful. But football's the blink of an eye. That's what you've got to live with for the rest of your life."
In a longer clip from the episode shown on "Good Morning America" Wednesday, Brady talks about how his children reacted to the loss, and how it was a good lesson for them about winning and losing. Brady is expected to appear on GMA on Monday.
When he first announced the project, Brady said he had been thinking about doing something like this for a long time, 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 at the time. "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."
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.
