The first episode will feature Lynch taking racecar driving lessons, "until he ruins the tires of the vehicle". With that said, it's not at all surprising that Facebook would snap up a show on Lynch. The running back has previously made headlines for many reasons, including his voracious consumption of Skittles, his love of Applebee's, his reluctance to talk to the media, his efforts in his community, and, on the field, his forceful, tackle-breaking carries. Many people are happy to watch short clips on the social network, but it's too early to say whether or not many people are willing to head to Facebook for professional programming instead of heading to YouTube or subscribing to the likes of Amazon and Netflix.
The show will start streaming this month, according to Reuters, with eight episodes of 10-to-15 minutes featuring Lynch in all sorts of activities.More news: Hurricane Irma: UK pledges extra £25m for relief effort
Neither Facebook nor Bleacher Report would tell Reuters how much is being paid for the Lynch show. Once the show's exclusive Facebook window is up, Bleacher Report will retain its distribution rights.More news: Foo Fighters are opening a pub to celebrate 'Concrete And Gold'
