Former NFL Linebacker Ray Lewis, Spike TV Team Up for New Series

Ray Lewis will be tackling a new project this fall: a new series for Spike TV.

Lewis, a former NFL linebacker for the Baltimore Ravens, has teamed up with Spike TV for Coaching Bad, a new series which will explore coaching and anger management.

From Richard Hall, John Irwin and Damian Sullivan, Coaching Bad will center on nine coaches as they receive guidance from Lewis and anger management specialist Dr. Christian Conte. The series will bring together the nine coaches from various sports from across the country, as they go through a series of transformational courses: assessing each coach’s anger issues, working with the coach on changing their ways, and finally putting the change to test.

Spike TV executive vice president original series Sharon Levy looks forward to partnering with Lewis for this groundbreaking series:

“Spike TV is thrilled to partner with one of the greatest players in NFL history in a compelling new series that will shine a light on the ever-growing issue of coaches and their anger issue. Who better than Ray to bestow insight and wisdom to these coaches after his storied career as a leader on and off the field during his playing days with the University of Miami and Baltimore Ravens.”

The series will also feature a series of guest mentors including Glen “Big Baby” Davis, Chuck Pagano and Bill Romanowski.

Lewis played 17 years in the NFL, all with the Ravens, and was nominated to the Pro Bowl 13 times in his career. During his 17 year career, Lewis earned the NFL Defensive Player of the Year award twice, won two Super Bowls and was named a Super Bowl MVP. Since retiring at the end of the 2012 season, Lewis has joined the broadcast team over at ESPN.

The eight episode series is set to debut early in 2015.
