49ers Star in Netflix’s “Receiver”

A pair of 49ers players will be among those featured in a new Netflix documentary focused on NFL receivers. “Receivers” follows Davante Adams, Justin Jefferson, George Kittle, Deebo Samuel and Amon-Ra St. Brown through the 2023 NFL season. It is produced by NFL Flims, Omaha Productions and 2PM Productions, the team behind the hit series “Quarterback.”

“Receiver” is an eight-episode series set to premiere in Summer 2024 as a continuation of Netflix’s relationship with the NFL that first began with “Quarterback,” which hit the Netflix Global Top 10 for three weeks last year.

The series is produced by NFL Films, Omaha Productions and 2PM Productions, with executive producers Ross Ketover, Pat Kelleher and Keith Cossrow from NFL Films, executive producers Peyton Manning and Jamie Horowitz from Omaha Productions, and executive producer Patrick Mahomes from 2PM Productions.


“The natural progression is from a pass to a catch, so we’re excited to dive into the ‘Receiver’ world after the success of our ‘Quarterback’ series,” said Gabe Spitzer, vice president, nonfiction sports, Netflix. “NFL Films, Omaha Productions and 2PM Productions have delivered again in finding unique and dynamic athletes who will further highlight the drama of this sport on and off the field.”

“We were thrilled last summer to see audiences all over the world diving into the lives of NFL quarterbacks,” said Joe Zucco, supervising producer, NFL Films. “We believe the extraordinary skills, dedication and passion of the NFL’s great wide receivers – and one tight end – will make a perfect follow-up.”

“We are excited to be working again with Netflix and NFL Films to give fans unprecedented access to what it’s like to play receiver at the highest level,” said Peyton Manning. “As we did with ‘Quarterback,’ we look forward to telling the stories of five incredible receivers, each with their unique personality, skillset and motivation for what drives them to be the best.”

Netflix is the premier home for great sports stories as this series joins Netflix’s lineup of sports programming, including recent releases like “Quarterback,” “Formula 1: Drive To Survive,” “Full Swing,” “NASCAR: Full Speed,” “Untold,” “Tour de France: Unchained,” “Under Pressure: The U.S. Women’s World Cup Team,” “Six Nations: Full Contact” and more. Netflix has partnered with sports leagues including Formula 1, National Football League (NFL), the PGA TOUR, Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP), Women’s Tennis Association (WTA), Fédération internationale de football association (FIFA), World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) and more.
