Ageless has become a common descriptor for Tom Brady, but it is no secret that he has to fight to stay that way. The 40-year-old New England Patriots quarterback has been open about the work, both on and off the field, that it takes to remain at peak performance levels. Now, his battle will be the subject of the upcoming docu-series Tom vs Time.

Facebook ordered six episodes of the docuseries, and they’ll stream on Watch, Variety reports. The social media site launched a page for the show and released its trailer on Monday, January 8. It highlights Brady’s dedication to football and the sacrifices that he makes for the sport he loves.

“If you’re going to compete against me, you better be willing to give up your life — because I’m giving up mine,” he says at one point.

The trailer also offers a look at Brady’s family, including his three children and supermodel wife, Gisele Bundchen.

“I don’t think I’ve ever met anyone that loves to do something as much as he loves football,” she says of her husband.

As for Brady, he tells viewers that he has a “warrior’s spirit” and shares that he’s “always in competition with [himself].”

Brady said that he has been thinking for years that it would be “cool” to give fans more insight into his life. He indicated that Tom vs Time will do just that.

“The docu-series is intimate, in-depth and more personal than anything I’ve released on my social channels, so I think it will be a great way of extending my reach to people on Facebook Watch,” he said.

Meanwhile, the series’ creator, Gotham Chopra, wanted to explore what makes Brady great, so it is safe to say that Patriots fans will love it.

“My goal working with Tom — who has truly achieved unprecedented success on the field over the course of the last 18 NFL seasons — was to understand the anatomy of that greatness,” he said.

News of the docuseries’ comes as Brady leads the Patriots into the playoffs yet again, this time hunting for his sixth Super Bowl ring. Tom vs Time is produced by Religion of Sports and Dirty Robber, with Chopra, Ameeth Sankaran, Chris Uettwiller, and Martin Desmond Roe serving as executive producers.

Facebook has yet to reveal when Tom vs Time will premiere, but in the meantime, we can look for him on the field come on Saturday, January 13 when the Patriots host the Tennessee Titans at 8:15 p.m. ET.

When it comes to an iconic show like Friends, it’s tough to break out which seasons are the best. Every season has memorable episodes, moments, plot points, guest characters, and phrases that have become part of pop culture, from “We were on a break!” to “Pivot!” It might have taken Friends some time to hit its stride, but once it did, the sitcom solidified its position in pop culture history as one of the best to ever grace the small screen.

The new Tubi logo.

Tubi may look a little different the next time you open it. The ad-supported streaming service owned by Fox has unveiled a new brand that expands on the "rabbit hole" motif first seen in a 2023 Super Bowl ad. And with the rebrand, Tubi hopes you'll follow its content down even further.

“Our viewership growth is strongest with young, multicultural audiences, and they love Tubi for the rabbit holes, the nostalgia, and the content they can’t get anywhere else,” Nicole Parlapiano, Tubi chief marketing officer, said in a press release. “In this new brand system, we wanted to give them a fun, bold, and engaging platform that remains frictionless and 100% free, to indulge in the content that reflects their passions.

The 2024 Academy Awards ceremony is just around the corner; chances are, you've seen at least some of the nominees for Best Picture. Barbie and Oppenheimer, the two movies that defined 2023, have been seen by everyone at this point, but what about Killers of the Flower Moon? The Holdovers? Maybe Past Lives? How popular are these movies, and does it help or hurt their chances of winning the big prize?

In determining the popularity of this year's crop of Best Picture nominees, I looked past social media mentions, YouTube views, and critic scores and used the one metric that matters to the entertainment industry: money. Using their total worldwide grosses as of February 27, I rank each Best Picture nominee from least to most popular. Unlike a M. Night Shyamalan movie, you will not be surprised at the ending.
