Jake Paul, Johnny Manziel to be featured in Netflix's "Untold"
Cleveland will have a major presence in the new season of Netflix's sports docuseries "Untold."
Driving the news: Netflix released the trailer Wednesday for the weekly, four-episode run that premieres Aug. 1.
- The first episode, titled "Jake Paul the Problem Child," focuses on the controversial rise of the Cleveland-born YouTuber-turned-boxer.
- "This is the story of a kid who lost himself and boxing saved his life," Paul says in the trailer. "On the internet, I was the villain. In the world of boxing, being a villain is the best thing."
Between the lines: The second episode, "Johnny Football," premieres Aug. 8 and details the rise and fall of former Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel.
- The Browns drafted Heisman Trophy winner Manziel in 2014 only to see his career derailed by poor play and several offseason incidents, including one Manziel refers to as a "$5 million bender" in the "Untold" trailer.
What else we're watching: This season of "Untold" will also feature episodes on the Balco steroid scandal and the University of Florida football success during the late 2000s.
