Onion Launches Fantasy Football Series TOUGH SEASON

Onion Launches Fantasy Football Series TOUGH SEASON

Today, local Chicago production company, The Onion, has launched the first episode of its eight-part online video series following the exploits of one hapless fantasy football coach, Brad Blevins (team name: Brad’s Awesome Team), who’s been at the bottom of his league for years.  Brad’s quest: to win the National Fantasy Athletics Association.  The series is titled TOUGH SEASON and features NFL stars Matt Forte, Andrew Luck, Larry Fitzgerald and Alfred Morris.  The series also apparently offers an episode with Mason Crosby but he's a kicker and even worse he's a Packer so we won't mention him. The videos will be released throughout the season on theonion.com/toughseason

The Onion's production team for TOUGH SEASON includes Executive Producers Angie Gaffney and Brett Blake, Producer Matt Corrado, Director JJ Shebesta, Production Designer Caitlin Laingen and Tom Ciciura behind the camera.

Take a few minutes today and enjoy the debut episode with Chicago Bears RB (and fantasy football first rounder) Matt Forte here!
