The Esquire Network announced a 10-part documentary series focusing on what the cable net describes as “real-life Jerry Maguire” sports agents.
“The Agent” is set to premiere in July 2015. The show tracks four NFL agents: Jeff Guerriero, Peter Schaffer, Sunny Shah and Ed Wasielewski.
“With exclusive access beginning in September 2014, ‘The Agent’ chronicles the journey leading up to the 2015 draft,” Esquire says in its announcement. “From contract negotiations, endorsement deals, recruiting, private clubs and training to meetings with scouts and veteran players in the NFL, viewers will get raw insight into these behind-the-scenes business dealings. The relentless ambition, ruthless pressure and high-stakes of the pursuit to securing that top pick are revealed. Some call it the hustle and grind but it’s all about survival.”
