We don't know where Tom Brady is headed yet, but we do know where his studio production ambitions will take him.

Brady announced with a Monday Instagram post he is launching 199 Productions.

199 Productions -- named after Brady's selection number in the 2000 draft -- will be "a global multi-platform content company to develop original premium content including documentaries, feature films and television shows," per the Deadline story announcing Brady's company. His first project, a fast-paced documentary titled Unseen Football, will arrive via a partnership with Avengers: Endgame directors Joe and Anthony Russo.

Brady is approaching unrestricted free agency in less than two weeks for the first time in his career and has already inspired plenty of speculation for one's appetite. He's also made enough media appearances and starred in enough advertising spots for a few seasons' worth of face time. This is just his latest move to strike while his iron is incredibly hot, even at 42 years old.

In the meantime, he's following in the footsteps of two other notable athletes and entertainers in launching a production company named after a pivotal moment in their respective lives.

LeBron James started SpringHill Entertainment -- named after the low-income apartment building he lived in during his senior year of high school in Akron, Ohio -- in Los Angeles in 2015 before eventually moving from Northeast Ohio to his Brentwood mansion in 2018. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson founded Seven Bucks Productions in 2012, often telling the story of how he was cut by the CFL's Calgary Stampeders and had only seven dollars in his pocket when he began his now-legendary wrestling career.

James' founding of SpringHill preceded a move west. Could Brady's path lead him there as well? There is a team in Los Angeles that just said goodbye to its longtime starter at the position, but we're not quite at the point of learning whether such a pairing could become reality. Until then, though, prepare your popcorn. If you enjoyed Tom vs. Time, you'll probably enjoy Unseen Football, too.

TB12 is thriving in NE. At least they are from a presence standpoint. I don't know about their financials, but they have TB12 facilities up here for recovery and training, and whatever else, they have apparel, supplements, etc. I hate the guy, would never use any of it, but he's not an idiot. He's got corporate partnerships with places like WeWork, to bring the services and products to people at work. You name it... and there's a whole contingency of fans here that attribute the winning to him, so they wear TB12 gear instead of Pats gear, as there's sort of a fanhood rift around who deserves more credit.

Dummies. All of them.

I'd like 1 of these.... to take a big sloppy dump in before each Patriots Jets matchup for superstitious Jet green luck.

I keep them in a folder titled "topics that will draw in CTM".  Next one is about Chad Pennington, followed by a Gallup poll determining the best Community Colleges for dating.  

Ahh.. send me that last one please

I undestand that, and wonder - why does it matter?

There are tons of regional chains that thrive because of a niche-to-customer fit. Over-extension would kill them. He’s got it working at scale.

If I were the type of guy that wears cuffed skinny jeans, a flannel and a perfectly manicured beard... plus a Pats fan... I would... you know what? I can’t even...

Brady is ghey. Eff the Pats!

It’s like when I went to SUNY Cortland and we all wore Cortland gear but if you’re ever a mile outside of Cortland, NY wearing Cortland gear, for sure someone will come up to you and ask you which Arby’s you work at.

Is Cortland a remedial college?  :)

I recall you once mentioning partying at Cortland! Good times 

One of my top 5 drunk memories was in Cortland.  Walked up to a good looking girl at a house/keg party, totally smashed, told her I could pleasure her for an hour with my tongue and hands behind my back. (smooth I know)...  and that I didn't have a room as I was with my buddy all she had to do was sneak me in the dorm.  She took it in good spirits as I could hardly stand.  Left the next day and my buddy said she was asking about me.   Good times.

I'm going to go out on a limb and say he'll now sign an under market-value contract, and then, just coincidentally, that team will also sign a $40 million contract with 199 Productions. 

Salary cap, shmalary cap

Sounds about right.
