Showtime launching “Inside the NFL”


James Brown, Phil Simms and Cris Collinsworth will host “Inside the NFL” when the series launches September 10 on Showtime.  The announcement was made by Matthew Blank, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Showtime Networks, Inc. and Sean McManus, President, CBS News and Sports and Executive Producer, The NFL on CBS.
The show, produced by CBS Sports and NFL Films, will air each Wednesday at 9:00 PM during the NFL season through February 11, 2009.

"It’s a great catch for us to get JB, Cris and Phil to anchor the show," said Blank.  "They are the top football analysts in the game and their collective expertise will give the show the kind of perspective and insight that will add to Inside the NFL’s tradition as the best football show on television."
