Football America

Football America is a book and film series that was released by the National Football League in 1992. It was also the name of a follow-up series that aired on NFL Network from 2003 to 2005 on a regular basis.

The books and TV shows were feature stories about various players and teams. Among the stories:

Turner Network Television, which then held partial rights to NFL games, telecast the original film in 1992. The 2003-05 series was hosted by veteran sportscaster Charley Steiner. It aired on Sunday and Monday nights, at the same time ESPN and ABC presented their prime time games.

Football America was "cancelled" by NFL Network in 2006, when the network revamped its lineup; there is now more emphasis on live programs and major projects like America's Game: The Super Bowl Champions. But the show still appears very occasionally; the show aired at the same time the Thanksgiving Day games were played in 2006.

In 2014, Football America returned as a one-time special that aired during Fox's coverage of Super Bowl XLVIII. The revamped special focused on the NFL's "Together We Make Football" campaign.
