Michigan announced Tuesday that a documentary on the 2017 football season is being chronicled by Amazon Prime Video, and will be released on Amazon in January 2018.
"We are proud to partner with Amazon Prime Video in documenting our University of Michigan student-athletes' daily experiences and the lifelong lessons learned both on the football field and in the classroom," Harbaugh said in a release from the school. "We welcome judgment! We embrace this opportunity to showcase our 2017 University of Michigan football team to a vast audience around the world."
The series will allow viewers to get an exclusive glimpse of Wolverine practices and game preparation throughout the course of the season. More than just a football show, producers will also follow players and coaches around campus, in classrooms and around the city of Ann Arbor to give fans a true sense of what it means to be a Michigan Wolverine.
"We think documenting this season will reveal that our university and football program are unique environments that equip our student-athletes for success in both academics and athletics," said athletics director Warde Manuel. "We are excited to work with great partners and to break new ground as the first collegiate program to participate in this digital space."
Michigan opened its 2017 season with a win over Florida at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, and followed it up at home with a win over Cincinnati. The Wolverines host Air Force this weekend at Michigan Stadium at noon ET.
