The Associated Press caught up with Brady, Strahan and Gotham Chopra — the creator, director and voice — of the series that airs beginning Nov. 15 on the Audience Network on DirecTV and AT&T U-verse.
Brady is a quarterback for the New England Patriots. Strahan is a retired New York Giants defensive end, who is joining ABC's "Good Morning America" this fall. Chopra is the son of spiritual guru Deepak Chopra. . . .
AP: Where did the idea of this show come from?
Chopra: Figuratively I feel like I've been working on this my whole life. Obviously growing up with my father, I was around that world of spirituality and religion. But I also grew up in Boston. I bled green as a Celtics fan in the '80s. I loved sports. About five years ago, I had a conversation with my father, who never really understood that devotion to sports. And I remember saying to him that all of those things you speak in the spiritual tradition also exist in sports.
