New York, NY (July 2, 2012) - The NBC Sports Group and the Time Inc. Sports Group will partner to produce "Sports Illustrated," presented by Lexus, a monthly, hour-long sports magazine TV show.

It was also announced that Lexus will be the program's presenting sponsor.

"Sports Illustrated is an iconic brand and the gold standard in long-form journalism," said Miller. This programming fits incredibly well with our rich history of storytelling, and partnering with Sports Illustrated for this show adds even more quality programming to NBC Sports Group's growing portfolio."
