The Ultimate Legend: A Biopic Series on the Greatest Athlete of All Time

Variety reports that “The Patriot Way,” an upcoming biopic series, is in development by the Gotham Group and is set to capture the remarkable life and career of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. The series will trace Brady’s path from his humble beginnings as a sixth-round NFL draft pick to his extraordinary status as a six-time Super Bowl champion. In a departure from a purely celebratory narrative, the show will delve into the prominent controversies and conflicts that have marked Brady’s career.

Tom Brady, hailed as the greatest NFL player in history, boasts records that seem unattainable, making his life an irresistible subject for “The Patriot Way.”

Brady’s involvement in two high-profile scandals, namely the “Deflategate” controversy and “Spygate,” will be explored within the series. Additionally, it will shed light on the occasionally tumultuous relationship between Brady and New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick. The depiction of these events remains a point of curiosity, but fans hope the series will provide a balanced portrayal of Brady’s complex journey.

Based on the 2018 book “12: The Inside Story of Tom Brady’s Fight for Redemption” by sports journalists Casey Sherman and Dave Wedge, the series will be brought to life through the talents of screenwriters Paul Tamasy and Eric Johnson. Ellen Goldsmith-Vein, CEO of the Gotham Group renowned for the Disney Stargirl movies (distinct from the CW series based on the DC comic book character), will spearhead the series’ production.
