Favre, Manning back in Green Bay for filming of new TV series


GREEN BAY (WKOW) — Legendary NFL quarterbacks Brett Favre and Peyton Manning returned to Titletown for a day to film a segment for Manning’s new TV show, “Peyton’s Places.”

The show debuts on ESPN+ in July, with ESPN and ABC airing special compilations.

They paid a visit to Vince Lombardi’s former Green Bay home for a photo at the legendary coach’s bar in a photo posted to Twitter Friday by Brett Favre.

They also took a spin in Bart Starr’s Super Bowl MVP Corvette convertible.

Manning, a lock for the Pro Football Hall of Fame when he becomes eligible in 2021, is hosting and serving as an executive producer for “Peyton’s Places,” a five-part, 30-episode series celebrating the NFL’s 100th season.

“NFL Films has been great throughout this and they approached me about doing it to tell the story of the past 100 years,” Manning told the Associated Press. “They certainly had a template and blueprint they wanted to tell, and we had certain people we wanted to talk to and visit and have conversations about how football got started.”

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
