Chicago, IL, September 20, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- Brothers Brendon and Femi Ayanbadejo, who can once again call themselves teammates as well, are opening their doors to the world. The Chicago Bears siblings, who also hail from the Windy City, launched their new online reality series premiering Sunday, September 16, 2007. The webisodes will air on www.BearsBrothers.com and will feature an all-access behind the scenes look at the brothers’ off-the-field lives.
The Ayanbadejo brothers’ online reality series is produced by Soze Productions, an award winning New York City-based film production company. Brendon, a linebacker and special teams ace who has been with the team since 2005, was part of the Chicago Bears Super Bowl XLII team in 2007 and was also selected to the Pro Bowl. Femi, a nine-year veteran fullback, signed a one-year contract with the Bears in the spring of 2007. This marks the second time the brothers have been on the same team since playing together for the Miami Dolphins in 2003.
Brendon and Femi are allowing complete access to their personal lives throughout the season, in addition to the final days of pre-season. The webisodes will be broadcast as five minute vignettes, with new shows airing twice a week: on Game Days and Thursdays. The debut webisode features Brendon welcoming his brother to the team and Femi hanging out with his new teammates at a local barbershop.
The series trailer is available for viewing on YouTube at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vg32TepwEE4
