Versus to Launch New Weekly NFL Series

NFL Films and NBC Sports Group will be producing a new behind-the-scenes weekly show that looks at two NFL games. NFL Turning Point will premiere Thursday, Sept. 15 at 10 p.m. ET/PT and will air on Versus. This is the first NFL program to ever air on Versus, which will be re-named the NBC Sports Network Jan. 2.

“Showcasing the sounds and images of the game, from the smallest detail to the big picture has been our strength for nearly 50 years,” said NFL Films President Steve Sabol. “We are thrilled to get an opportunity to produce that type of show with a new partner in Versus.”

“NFL Turning Point is symbolic of the high-quality, relevant programming viewers will see more of on our national, all-sports cable platform,” said Mark Lazarus, chairman of NBC Sports Group. “It unites two of sports’ premier storytellers in NBC Sports and NFL Films to bring viewers a new perspective on the game.”

It’ll also serve as NBC’s own form of self-promotion, as the show will often include games featuring teams that are playing against each other during the upcoming Sunday night game on NBC.
