Last month, Facebook revealed plans to launch a new reality series centered on the escapades of charismatic NFL superstar Marshawn Lynch. Known as No Script, the show is a collaborative effort alongside Bleacher Report and is billed as an integral part of Facebook’s new, well-funded campaign to bring strong all-original content to the social media site. Now, for the first time, we’re receiving a preview of what’s to come once No Script lands on Facebook Watch.
Made in collaboration with Beast Mode Productions, No Script transports Marshawn Lynch to unique environments where he’s forced to try his hand at a wide variety of out-of-the-ordinary tasks. Allowing Lynch’s trademark personality to shine, No Script lets the Raiders running back run over cars with tanks, wreck havoc on the racetrack, battle against gravity, bust out his best karate chops and more. As we previously reported, each individual program will clock in at about 10 to 15 minutes in length.
You can take a look at the trailer for Marshawn Lynch’s new Facebook reality show No Script above and catch the first episode of the series this Thursday via Facebook Watch.
With over a billion dollars in investment planned, expect Facebook to introduce similar shows in the near future.
