The Los Angeles Rams are launching a new documentary series, "Behind the Grind," that will air exclusively on Facebook Watch. The show's first episode will premiere on Thursday, March 15 at 9 pm ET/6 pm PT.
Each 10-minute episode of "Behind the Grind" will showcase various elements of the team's preparation during the offseason as they look to defend their NFC West title and build on their success heading into 2018. The Rams' Emmy Award-winning media group developed this original series as a way to give fans a unique look into the team on and off the field.
Fans can follow the show and watch the trailer at Facebook.com/RamsBehindTheGrind.
Facebook Watch was introduced by Facebook last year as a platform for episodic shows. It is accessible for U.S. users on mobile, on desktop/laptop, and in Facebook's TV apps.
The first episode of "Behind the Grind" kicks off with the General Manager Les Snead and 2017 AP Coach of the Year Sean McVay traveling to Indianapolis for the NFL Scouting Combine.
"If you're trying to win the West, you should probably have an urgency to win that Combine," says Snead. "But if you're trying to repeat as champions of the West — guess what — you should try to win that Combine."
Below is the tentative schedule and descriptions for the first five episodes.
