The reality show is called “No Script” and will launch at a time when Facebook, Amazon, Netflix and others are spending billions on original content. The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Facebook is planning to spend up to $1 billion on original shows.

“No Script” will start streaming this month (September 2017) and will have eight 10- to 15-minute episodes featuring Lynch (who is returning to the NFL this season after retiring in 2015 from the Seattle Seahawks).

The first episode has Lynch taking racecar driving lessons.
