Brett Favre Documentary Premieres January 11th

Brett Favre is the executive producer of the documentary “Shocked: A Hidden Factor in the Sports Concussion Crisis.” Shocked will premiere Thursday, January 11th at 6:30pm ET, on the multiplatform sports network, Stadium.

Shocked will be available via Stadium’s broadcast television channel, along with their digital platforms watchstadium.com, Twitter (@WatchStadium), the Stadium apps on iOS, Android and tvOS.

Partnered with KMG Media, the documentary will share personal stories from Favre’s 20 year career which ended with a concussion in 2010. Shocked will also depict Gracie Hussey, a 17 year old girl suffering from post concussion syndrome caused by head-to-turf injuries when she was 13.

“Now I’m thinking, wow…if I only knew” says Favre in the Shocked trailer.

On Wednesday, Favre joined the Rich Eisen show to promote the upcoming documentary, “I would much rather be a caddie for (my 3 grandsons) in golf than watch them play football,” said the hall of fame quarterback.

Preceding the premiere of Shocked on January 11th, Favre will join Stadium’s studio show, “The Rally,” at 6pm ET to discuss the documentary. The documentary will re-air on the Stadium network throughout the month of January.
