"The Great Brady Heist," FOX Sports Films' Newest "MAGNIFY" Series Documentary, Premieres Feb. 1 on FOX

Sports Emmy-Nominated Series' Sixth Film Goes Deep on the Search for Tom Brady's Stolen Super Bowl LI Jersey with Exclusive Footage and Interviews

LOS ANGELES, CA - FOX Sports Films today announced "The Great Brady Heist" as the newest film in its MAGNIFY series. Produced by NFL Films, in association with Gotham Chopra's Religion of Sports, the documentary chronicles the disappearance of Tom Brady's jersey following the New England Patriots' improbable Super Bowl LI comeback win over the Atlanta Falcons. Through never-before-seen FOX Sports footage, exclusive conversations with Brady, the first ever on-camera interview with the man who stole the jersey and other behind-the-scenes moments, the film looks intricately at the investigation as well as the boundaries of fandom and redemption.

"The Great Brady Heist" (54 mins) debuts on Saturday, Feb. 1 at 7:00 PM ET on FOX, the night before Super Bowl LIV, also on FOX.

"As the game's broadcaster, FOX Sports played a role in so many elements of this story, so it made sense for us, with the help of NFL Films and Religion of Sports, to take a closer look and see it through," said Charlie Dixon, Executive Vice President of Content, FOX Sports. "The Great Brady Heist is the fulfillment of a three-year journey that's captivated us from the beginning, and the film's Super Bowl weekend debut makes it particularly special."

After the Super Bowl LI broadcast on FOX, the company's extensive camera coverage played a key role in the investigation, and FOX Sports NFL Insider, Jay Glazer subsequently broke an early exclusive follow-up story on FS1, laying the path for the film.

"Just when you think you've seen it all in the sports world, a story like this comes around," said Ross Ketover, Chief Executive, NFL Films. "Anyone who thinks they know what happened that day will discover more jaw-dropping details than they could have imagined. 'The Great Brady Heist' is one of the most unique projects NFL Films has ever produced. We couldn't be more pleased to partner with FOX and Religion of Sports on such an engaging film."

"Sports are mythic. We invest so much of ourselves as fans in our favorite teams and players. This is a tale about that - what a singular jersey means beyond the threads it's made of and the number on the back," said Gotham Chopra, Co-Founder, Religion of Sports. "Why did multiple federal agencies and countless high-powered individuals all become a part of this hunt for Tom's jersey? Because sports matter and are about so much more than wins and losses."

FOX Sports Films' MAGNIFY series aims to bring a deep focus to untold sports stories. Featuring both legends and unknown heroes, these films provide a unique perspective and deeper connection to the sports we love. "The Great Brady Heist" is the sixth MAGNIFY film ("89 Blocks," "Shot in the Dark," "Nossa Chape," "They Fight" and "Q Ball"). The series, which launched in November 2017, has garnered two Sports Emmy Award nominations for "Outstanding Long Sports Documentary" ("Shot in the Dark," "89 Blocks").
