“It’s All Country” is produced by Manning’s Omaha Productions banner as well as NFL Films and Walt Disney Television Alternative. The project reunites Bryan and Manning, who first paired to host the Country Music Association Awards in 2022 and are set to do so again later this year.
Bryan, whose studio albums include “I’ll Stay Me,” “Crash My Party” and “Born Here Live Here Die Here,” is one of the most prominent names in country music. And on screen, he is best known for serving as an “American Idol” judge since 2018.
Manning, a hall-of-fame quarterback who played first for the Indianapolis Colts and later for the Denver Broncos, formed Omaha Productions in 2020, four years after his retirement from the NFL. The company has produced several unscripted series about sports hosted by Manning and other prominent athletes, and is under a deal at ESPN.
“It’s All Country” adds to Hulu’s growing slate of original documentary projects. Recent releases include “God Forbid: The Sex Scandal That Brought Down a Dynasty” and “Stolen Youth: Inside the Cult at Sarah Lawrence.”
