'NFL 360: Women in Football' Premieres Sunday, March 8 at 9:00 PM ET
The third season of NFL Network's Emmy-winning original series NFL 360 culminates Sunday, March 8 at 9:00 PM ET with NFL 360: Women in Football, an episode dedicated to stories of women who have broken barriers within football and redefined the role of women in the NFL.
The hour-long show airs on International Women's Day, which NFL Network celebrates with the premiere of this episode as well as the airing of A Lifetime of Sundays at 7:30 PM ET, which tells the story of the NFL through the perspective of four iconic female owners.
From the field to the coaching ranks to the broadcast booth to the command center, NFL 360: Women in Football includes a roundtable discussion of gender equality in football hosted Melissa Stark, and produced by the all-women team of Jamie Elias, Jennifer Chiogioji, Annie Gottlieb and India Wright.
Among the personal journeys and stories shared are:
- Antoinette Harris went from growing up in foster care and surviving ovarian cancer to becoming the first woman to receive a college football scholarship as a non-kicker
- Maral Javadifar and Lori Locust made the Tampa Bay Buccaneers the first NFL team with two female full-time coaching assistants
- Andrea Kremer and Hannah Storm created the first all-woman broadcast team to call NFL games and have set a new standard for the sport and the way it is covered
- Cathy Lanier didn't let teen pregnancy or dropping out of high school keep her from becoming the first-ever female Chief of Police in Washington D.C and now the NFL's Senior Vice President of Security
NFL 360 is the NFL Network's premier showcase for in-depth documentary storytelling, shining a light on the most compelling people, places, and moments from across the football landscape – and beyond. Over its first two seasons, the show has earned multiple Emmy nominations, and last year won the award for Outstanding Short Feature for its segment, "I Am Shaquem Griffin."
