Horned Frog fans will have inside access like never before thanks to TCU football’s new all-access show, “Carter Boys.”

“Carter Boys” premieres Thursday, Sept. 1, at 6 p.m. The show will highlight interactions between players and showcase the work that is put into a Big 12 Conference football program. Episodes range from 15 to 30 minutes and will be streaming weekly on ESPN plus.

The show shares similarities with HBO’s “Hard Knocks,” a program that follows an NFL team during preseason.

TCU football Director of Creative Media Jason Andrews said the show will give fans a different perspective of TCU football.

“At the end of the day, it is the fans’ team, and we want to help make the fans invested in the players and the team beyond just the wins and losses,” said Andrews.

Andrews worked with head coach Sonny Dykes at SMU for five years. Dykes brought Andrews to help replicate the media success at SMU by providing fans with exclusive, all-access content.

“This is all possible because of the trust that Dykes has in our staff,” said Andrews. “Dykes allows us to record meetings, be in the locker rooms and mic up players and coaches. This trust allows our staff to portray the most authentic content of the football team for the fans to consume.”

The first episode of “Carter Boys,” debuting on Thursday, dives into fall camp preparation leading up to the first game of the season against Colorado. The episode will also introduce fans to Coach Dykes, key players and intriguing storylines heading into the season.

The exclusive content of “Carter Boys” will bring more eyes to the Horned Frog roster and create an avenue for intimate interactions between the team and fans.
