If you've ever been watching a Denver Broncos game and thought to yourself, "Boy, I'd like a closer look at the personal life of Eric Decker," well, E! has got the show for you.

Or, you know, if you happen to be a big fan of country singer Jessie James, who is married to Decker, and you'd like a glimpse into her life, that would be a pretty good reason to watch too. 

And of course, it doesn't hurt that both parties are easy enough on the eyes.

The show will give viewers a look into the life of the couple as they prepared to get married in June, with both parties shedding light on their respective careers and the everyday life that accompanies being a professional athlete and performer. 

Let's get some more info about this reality show.


When: Sunday, Sept. 29 at 10 p.m. ET

Network: E!


What They're Saying

For his part, Decker knows some friendly ribbing in the locker room is probably heading his way, as he told Mike Klis of The Denver Post:

I'm not nervous about it. I decided to do it, so why be nervous? I realize it might change as far as going out and doing things. But we still feel like normal people. 

I will say [Broncos linebacker Wesley] Woodyard is in the first (episode). So if junk is getting passed around, we're going down together.

It's an NFL locker room, Eric—they're going to give you crap. The only person probably immune to needling in the locker room is Peyton Manning, and even he was pushing it with "Football on Your Phone."

Meanwhile, James is excited the show will introduce America to her mother and sister (via her Twitter account):

Oh, and spoiler alert—the couple are expecting:

For the gentlemen readers who will perhaps be, um, encouraged to watch this show along with their wives or girlfriends, it sounds as though Decker will at least give somewhat of a tour into his life as a professional athlete. So you can probably expect to see some training sessions, a behind-the-scenes look at other players on the Broncos, etc.

Think of it as watching Hard Knocks and earning brownie points in the process. I'm not saying Manning will show up for dinner and start talking X's and O's or anything—man, how amazing would that be?—but it shouldn't be all of the lovey-dovey stuff either. 

A lot of it probably, but not all of it.
