Episode 1 of the latest season of the ESPN+ Original series Peyton’s Places is now available exclusively on ESPN+. Peyton Manning returns to host a fourth season of the popular Emmy-nominated football-themed docuseries, which features Manning exploring football’s history and cultural impact through conversations with players, coaches and other key figures.
Since the debut of the first season, Places has been expanded into a franchise, with various other sport centric shows joining the Places universe including Eli’s Places (college football), Abby’s Places (soccer), Big Papi’s Places (baseball), McEnroe’s Places (tennis), P.K.’s Places (hockey), Rowdy’s Places (competitive fighting), and Vince’s Places (professional basketball), as well as the upcoming Sue’s Places (college basketball).
“I am so excited to be back for season 4 of Peyton’s Places and to continue this journey telling stories about football and the NFL,” said Manning. “We had a lot of fun traveling across the country this season – from riding trolleys with George Kittle in San Francisco to riding roller coasters with Phil Simms at Disney World. It was a season filled with new places and new stories that all football fans can enjoy.”
In episode 1, Peyton joins 49ers tight end, George Kittle, on the streets of San Francisco to promote the NFL’s newest national holiday: National Tight Ends Day. Later in the season, Manning will tell stories of football history with the help of guests including Wes Chandler, Mark Cuban, Dan Fouts, Darrell Green, Charlie Joiner, Mark May, Phil Simms, Joe Theismann, Ricky Watters, Wes Welker, and Kellen Winslow.
