Life after football sure has been interesting for NY Giants great Eli Manning. While the two-time Super Bowl-winning quarterback has been making plenty of noise during Monday Night Football and on Twitter with some fantastic takes, it looks like Manning is also ready to take his talents to a completely different field: children’s television.
According to a report from The Hollywood Reporter, Manning is currently in the process of setting up his own kids’ cartoon show. Per The Hollywood Reporter, Manning would be an executive producer for the show and he’d also be the voice for one of the characters. This is all in the early stages, but it’s already creating quite the buzz on Twitter.
Eli Manning tv show for kids would be great to see
Apparently, the show would consist of a ‘shy quarterback’ who has the secret power of having a rocket for an arm. While Manning wasn’t known for having the strongest cannon in the NFL during his incredible career, he put up some truly incredibly numbers for the G-Men and he also took down Tom Brady and the Patriots twice to bring home the Lombardi Trophy.
Manning will always be loved by people in East Rutherford and nothing is going to change that. While the end of his career didn’t go as planned, Manning finished his time with the Giants throwing for more than 57,000 yards and 366 touchdowns. There were also the four trips to the Pro Bowl, plus the two titles we already mentioned.
Manning still has a ton of fans in the area and kids looked up to him from start to finish during his 16 years with New York. Now, he’ll look to make an even bigger impact on the youth with this new television show. The Hollywood Reporter has stated that no network or streaming service has signed up to broadcast the show, but things are in the works.
There’s no set release date for the show, or a name, which tells you how much work needs to be done for the first episode to get aired. With that said, Manning looks to be quite excited about this project and it’s sure to make a giant splash once it finally airs. More details are sure to arrive in the coming weeks on this, but it seems like a fun, unique project all around.
