EMMY-NOMINATED "NFL TURNING POINT" RENEWED FOR 2012, 2013 & 2014 SEASONS

Dan Patrick returns as host

Show to air throughout NFL playoffs with four episodes added per season

NEW YORK - April 25, 2012 - Emmy Award-nominated NFL Turning Point, the NBC Sports Network's program that utilizes NFL Films' unprecedented access to examine the turning point of high-profile NFL games every week, has been renewed for the 2012, 2013 and 2014 seasons with more episodes added to allow the program to air throughout the NFL playoffs, NFL Films and the NBC Sports Group announced today.

With Football Night in America's Dan Patrick returning as host, the 60-minute NFL Turning Point will make its 2012 season debut on Wednesday, September 12, and will air a total of 22 episodes, running weekly on Wednesday nights at 10 p.m. ET throughout the entire NFL season, including the playoffs and Super Bowl. The season finale, scheduled to air on Wednesday, February 6, 2013, will look back at the turning point of Super Bowl XLVII. During last year's inaugural season, NFL Turning Point aired 18 times, primarily on Thursday nights and only aired one program during the playoffs, which was the week prior to the Super Bowl.

"We were so pleased with NFL Turning Point's quality and performance during its inaugural year that we worked with our partners at NFL Films to increase the number of episodes this year, allowing fans to watch the show throughout the NFL playoffs," said Jon Miller, president, programming, NBC Sports and NBC Sports Network. "NFL Turning Point is a cornerstone of the NBC Sports Network's new original programming and representative of our commitment to the highest quality production standards. The Emmy Award nomination for the show's first season is validation of that commitment and a tribute to our partners at NFL Films, who are true master storytellers."

Said NFL Films President Steve Sabol, "Last year we had a great rookie season, but as Paul Brown once told me, 'In the NFL, the biggest jump comes between the first and second year.' We hope NFL Turning Point makes that type of leap this fall."

Following its debut season, NFL Turning Point was nominated for Outstanding Edited Sports Series/Anthology in March by the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. The Sports Emmys will be awarded this Monday night in New York City.

Each week, NFL Films utilizes its unprecedented access to cover games in its traditional behind-the-scenes, award-winning style. The crucial moment in each game -- its turning point -- is examined in-depth and from all angles using NFL Films' unmatched cinematography, sideline and on-field audio as well as postgame access to players and coaches.
