Watch Marshawn Lynch Drive A Race Car, Talk About Playing Tennis With Serena Williams In First Episode Of 'No Script'
The first episode of Marshawn Lynch's new show No Script with Marshawn Lynch has been released.
Courtesy of Bleacher Report and Facebook, the premiere episode finds the Oakland Raiders starting running back driving race cars alongside Kansas City Chiefs cornerback Marus Peters. The almost 16-minute-long episode ends with a team of producers pitching different ideas to Lynch, including one where he plays a game of tennis against Serena Williams while she was pregnant (the episode presumably was filmed prior to Williams having her child). Needless to say, the pitch created this hilarious exchange:
Producer: Would you want to play tennis against Serena Williams even though she's super pregnant?
Lynch: That's an unfair advantage.
Producer: That she's pregnant?
Lynch: No, ni**a. That it's Serena Williams. Play her ass in ping-pong or something but hell no. I stay in m own lane.
The series was announced last month. Facebook reportedly paid up to $1 billion for original shows on its Watch video service, although it is unknown how many millions Facebook paid Bleacher Report, who is in charge of creating the program. The show's first season will be made up of eight episodes running between 10 and 15 minutes each.
"We think we have a big hit on our hands," Rory Brown, president of Bleacher Report, said. "People are going to spend more time on Facebook because of it."
