Congratulations, Manning brothers: You finally did something that I actually want to see.
This spoof of police dramas comes directly from DirecTV and looks like the NFL version of the Beastie Boys’ “Sabotage” video.
Despite being one of the bigger critics of the Mannings, even I have to admit this is pretty hilarious. Peyton Manning has long shown fine acting chops, going back to his MasterCard commercials and an appearance on “Saturday Night Live.” And Eli‘s Lemmie-style mustache is a look he should think about keeping. This show would be a great 9 p.m. anchor to go along with these proposed NFL-inspired shows.
And if you are inclined to see some behind-the-scenes photos, DirecTV has some images on its Facebook page.
