George Kittle, Deebo Samuel Sr. to Star in Netflix's 'Receiver' | Off the Field

The Faithful won't have to wait until the 2024 season starts to watch some of their favorite San Francisco 49ers stars in action.

Tight end George Kittle and wide receiver Deebo Samuel Sr. will be two of the five pass catchers featured in "Receiver," the new Netflix series that follows the highly-rated "Quarterback" featuring Patrick Mahomes, Kirk Cousins and Marcus Mariota that premiered last summer.

Football fans can expect eight episodes produced by NFL Films, Omaha Productions and 2PM Productions, with Pro Football Hall of Famer Peyton Manning and Mahomes serving as two executive producers on the series. San Francisco's very own Emmy-award winning production team, 49ers Studios, also hand a hand in the creation of scenes from the 49ers perspective in the upcoming series.

Other players to be featured alongside Kittle and Samuel Sr. will be Justin Jefferson from the Minnesota Vikings, Davante Adams from the Las Vegas Raiders and Amon-Ra St. Brown from the Detroit Lions.

"The natural progression is from a pass to a catch, so we're excited to dive into the 'Receiver' world after the success of our 'Quarterback' series," Netflix vice president, nonfiction sports, Gabe Spitzer said. "NFL Films, Omaha Productions and 2PM Productions have delivered again in finding unique and dynamic athletes who will further highlight the drama of this sport on and off the field."

"We are excited to be working again with Netflix and NFL Films to give fans unprecedented access to what it's like to play receiver at the highest level," Manning added in a press release. "As we did with 'Quarterback,' we look forward to telling the stories of five incredible receivers, each with their unique personality, skillset and motivation for what drives them to be the best."

Get ready to watch exclusive footage from last season, in which Kittle and Samuel Sr. helped the 49ers win the NFC West and become conference champions.
