There’s a football-themed docuseries at CBS Access Texas 6. The streamer said this morning that the unscripted show earned a Season 2 renewal less than a week after its premiere.
Created by Jared Christopher (Titletown, TX), follows the Greyhounds, a high school 6-man football team under the direction of Coach Dewaine Lee as they attempt a three-peat for the 6-Man Football State Championship. While football remains the spine of Strawn, TX, the series ultimately depicts the spirit of a small town and a team that shows up for one another on and off the field.
The first three episodes of Texas 6 premiered on Thanksgiving Day, and new episodes will be available on-demand on Thursdays beginning this week. The Season 1 finale will bow on New Year’s Eve. Watch a trailer for the inaugural season below.
When the show was announced in October, Julie McNamara, EVP and Head of Programming at CBS All Access, said: “Jared has uncovered an emotional and riveting story of perseverance, sportsmanship and grit, set in the little-known world of six-man football. His commitment to and devotion to the subject and individuals is apparent from the first scene.”
