New Sports & Entertainment Talk Show Hosted by NFL Network’s Eisen to Premiere Today, October 6 at Noon (EDT)

Will Air on DIRECTV’s Audience Network, ROOT Sports Networks and Simulcast Digitally on NFL Now

EL SEGUNDO, Calif., Oct. 6, 2014 – Premiering today at noon ET, The Rich Eisen Show, a new, three-hour (Noon to 3 p.m. ET), daily talk show featuring NFL Network’s Rich Eisen will air exclusively on DIRECTV’s Audience Network and be available digitally on NFL Now. (nfl.com/now)

Produced and owned by DIRECTV Original Content, the show will also debut on DIRECTV’s ROOT Sports-branded regional sports networks in Pittsburgh, Denver and Seattle.

Originating out of a newly designed studio from DIRECTV’s headquarters in Los Angeles, The Rich Eisen Show is a natural progression for the NFL Network host whose weekly NFL.com podcast garnered 16 million downloads over its four-year run. In moving to a daily format, the new show allows Eisen to use his engaging blend of insightful football analysis with an offbeat mix of humor and pop culture, while continuing to attract the most recognizable names in sports and entertainment.

During the first week of the show, Eisen will talk with guests from the world of sports such as NFL Network analysts Marshall Faulk, Steve Mariucci, Michael Irvin and Saints Coach Sean Payton; Hall of Fame running back Marcus Allen, 49ers CEO Jed York, MMQB writer Peter King and Dan Patrick, who will be the show’s initial guest. Additionally, many of the biggest names from film and television will be regular guests on the show and appear in studio, including actor/comedian Paul Rudd (The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Knocked Up); Vince Gilligan, Emmy Award-winning creator/writer of Breaking Bad; actor/comedian David Koechner (Anchorman); and actor David Boreanaz (BONES, FX).

In addition to Eisen, the show brings together executive producer Ted Mulkerin, a Peabody Award-winning writer who joins from ‘The Late Late Show’, Chris Law and Chris Brockman, both longtime contributors to Eisen’s NFL.com podcast, and coordinating producer Drew Ohlmeyer, who spent 10 years with NFL Media as a producer and liaison to the 32 NFL Clubs prior to joining The Rich Eisen Show.

“I wouldn’t be in the Hall of Fame without him.” – Cris Carter

“You had a guy that people said could not play quarterback in the NFL. And here he made the Hall of Fame.” – Lorenzo Romar

“His first game in the NFL, he was the best player on the field.” – Chris Cooley

After 24 years of life, three-and-a-half NFL seasons and three collegiate seasons, Sean Taylor still lacks a clear image.

During his first seasons in the NFL with the Denver Broncos and Miami Dolphins, the mercurial Marshall achieved immense on-field success, yet struggled with uncontrollable emotional outbursts and off-field issues. Yet through his diagnosis of Borderline Personality Disorder, Marshall has been able to couple his success on the football field with a determination and passion to make an impact in his community.
