BRISTOL, Conn. — Peyton Manning isn’t letting retirement keep him away from the game he loves.

Manning will break down NFL game film in eight episodes of the ESPN+ series Detail, a sports analysis program created by Kobe Bryant.

The retired Colts and Broncos QB will also write and host each episode.

Manning told ESPN he is excited to be involved with the series.

“I’ve always enjoyed talking football with coaches, players, and passionate fans, and that’s the core of this show,” Manning said Wednesday. “I’m honored to help expand Kobe’s Detail to a football audience.”

The first season of Detail focused only on basketball analysis. Kobe Bryant told ESPN that when he decided to expand the show’s second season to include NFL game film, Manning was the first NFL player he called.

“Peyton was my first call to be the NFL athlete due to his unrelenting preparation and study of his craft. The next generation of football players will learn first-hand how one of the greatest players of all time objectively breaks down a game. It’s the ultimate film session for anyone who wants to learn and improve,” Bryant said.

The first episode airs Thursday and will take a look at how Arizona Cardinals quarterback Josh Rosen performed in Sunday’s game against the Minnesota Vikings.

The remaining episodes are expected to come out on a weekly or bi-weekly basis throughout the season.
