Though his playing days have yet to come to an end, Tom Brady is already making plans for his post-NFL career.

“When I was the 199th draft pick in 2000, I knew I needed to work hard every day to prove myself. Launching a production company is no different,” Brady wrote with his post. “Our 199 Productions team and partners will create inspiring content to share with the world. Stay tuned … Exciting times are ahead, both on and off the field.”

The company’s first project will be Unseen Football, a “big-screen 3D adventure documentary designed to take viewers into the invisible realms of football, guided by the most successful quarterback in NFL history.” In addition to Unseen Football, 199 Productions will develop original premium content including feature films and television shows based on sports, entertainment and health and wellness.
