Religion of Sports Tuesdays on AT&T Audience Network

Religion of Sports will take viewers on a weekly global journey, celebrating the transcendent power of sports. New England Patriots Quarterback Tom Brady, Pro Football Hall of Famer Michael Strahan and filmmaker Gotham Chopra are the co-creators of this original sports documentary series. Each hour will examine unique examples where specific sports profoundly influence societies and cultures in a manner that extends far beyond merely entertainment value. From NASCAR to the Calgary Stampede to the cult-like rise of UFC and mixed martial arts fighting. Religion of Sports will air on AT&T Audience Network, a channel that offers original programming only on DIRECTV and AT&T U-Verse.

Ric Speaks with Executive Producer Gotham Chopra. Says Chopra: “Religion of Sports is the nexus of everything I love – sports, spirituality, and media. Not only do I believe sports is a religion since they allow us to witness life’s most profound and defining principles – success, failure, overcoming adversity, self-sacrifice and human achievement – playing out before our eyes, I think sports is the best religion because it’s constantly unfolding.”
