“Athletes and talent are not just the story anymore, they are also the storytellers, and the demand for athlete-driven content is at an all-time high.”
– Jeff Schwartz, President and Founder, Excel Sports Management

The cameras are rolling as we introduce our new content arm Excel Media. The new media division marks our expansion into original programming, media talent representation and branded content development. We are kicking off the launch of Excel Media with two must-see docuseries highlighting the legendary careers of Joe Montana and Derek Jeter.

The Montana project, developed with Peacock and co-produced by Excel Media and NFL Films, will feature a first-hand account of his career from his early days as a high-school All-American through to his NFL Hall of Fame induction. The docuseries is slated to air this fall.

“The Captain” will not only explore Jeter’s unprecedented Hall of Fame 20-year Yankee career but will also touch on larger cultural issues, while providing unprecedented access to Jeter as he prepares to enter Cooperstown. ESPN is slated to air the series in early 2022 and is executive produced/co-produced by Excel Media, Mandalay Sports Media and Spike Lee, in cooperation with The Players’ Tribune.
