The episode is called "Favre Returns," and it's narrated by country music star Tim McGraw. The documentary focuses on Favre's history with the Packers, including his departure, his original return to Lambeau Field as a member of the Minnesota Vikings in 2009 and his recent return for the team's Hall of Fame induction ceremony last July.
Here's a full trailer for the first episode, courtesy of the official NFL Network Twitter account.
