  • Original Content Collaboration Expands as Part of New Agreement

ESPN has reached a long-term, multi-platform media rights extension with Peyton Manning’s Omaha Productions, extending the existing, unprecedented partnership into 2034.

ESPN’s newest agreement with Omaha Productions follows an original three-year agreement in 2021 and an extension announced in 2022. The new nine-year agreement will continue to grow the successful content partnership between ESPN and Omaha with opportunities for collaboration across multiple platforms.

Monday Night Football with Peyton and Eli Continues

The brothers are also joined each week by celebrity friends from the worlds of sports and entertainment.

The series achieved the Sports Emmy for Outstanding Live Series in 2022 and Peyton earned the Sports Emmy for Outstanding Personality/Sports Event Analyst in 2023. The ManningCast holds the top 15 spots among ESPN’s most-watched alternate telecasts, with individual editions approaching two million viewers.
