NFL Network premiered a series from executive producer Cam Newton on Tuesday night. "Football Town: Valdosta, GA" takes an inside look at the 2016 season of the Valdosta High School football team.

The next five episodes of the series will be shown at 9 CDT on Tuesday nights on NFL Network.

The quarterback for the Carolina Panthers, Newton won the 2010 Heisman Trophy while helping Auburn capture the BCS national championship and received the 2015 NFL MVP Award while leading the Panthers to the Super Bowl.

In 2016, Newton was in front of the TV cameras as the host of 20 episodes of "All in with Cam Newton." In the series, Newton took kids in pursuit of their what-I-want-to-be-when-I-grow-up dreams.

Newton also served as an executive producer for that show. Last year, he started a production company, Iconic Saga Productions, in conjunction with Magical Elves, the company that produces "Top Chef," among other programs.


After an offseason that included shoulder surgery, Newton started the 2017 NFL regular season on Sunday in the Panthers' 23-3 victory over the San Francisco 49ers.

Newton completed 14-of-25 passes for 171 yards with two touchdowns and one interception against San Francisco. Newton threw a 40-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Russell Shepherd with three minutes left in the first quarter for the opening points of the game. He connected with running back Jonathan Stewart on a 9-yard touchdown pass with 11:24 left in the third quarter as Carolina took a 20-0 lead.

The Panthers play their first home game of the 2017 season on Sunday, when the Buffalo Bills visit Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, North Carolina, for a noon CDT kickoff. The Bills are coached by Sean McDermott, who worked as Carolina's defensive coordinator for the previous six seasons.
