Super Bowl Champ Julian Edelman is preparing for a new role and it might be his most emotional one yet.

On Friday, Showtime will be releasing a sports documentary film titled “100%: ­Julian Edelman” about the New England Patriots wide receiver,

You can expect to see some clips from local big names like Mark Wahlberg, Tom Brady and comedian Bill Burr as they follow Edelman on his personal journey from football to fatherhood.

“Keeping this project under wraps has been tough, a lot of highs, a lot of lows, a lot of surreal moments,” Edelman wrote on Instagram. “Just glad we had a camera rolling so we could make this thing our way.”

We caught up with Edelman last year as he was recovering from an ACL tear in his right knee that he suffered during a pre-season game. The film takes a look at how he overcame that injury to go on to become the 2019 Super Bowl Most Valuable Player. It also addresses his four-game suspension at the start of the 2018 season for violation of the NFL‘s performance-enhancing drug policy and his historic comeback in Super Bowl LIII.

“If you would have told me when I got hurt two years ago that 100% would be the result, I wouldn’t have believed you,” Edelman said in a statement released by Showtime.

As for the film? You just gotta believe it’s going to be good.
