Minnesota fans are going to be able to get a good feel for P.J. Fleck before he coaches his first game.

Titled "Being P.J. Fleck", the documentary-style, multi-episode program will follow the day-to-day life of Fleck, who burst on the national scene in 2016 as he led Western Michigan to an undefeated regular season and a berth in the Goodyear Cotton Bowl Classic. The first Fleck episode runs August 2 at 8 p.m. on ESPNU, and will be re-broadcast on Big Ten Network.

Last year, ESPNU ran a four-part series called "BEING Bret Bielema", highlighting the Arkansas coach. "Throughout the filming, which continues for a few more weeks, we capture his personality, passion and drive with his family, team and others he interacts with in various situations".

The series is being co-produced produced by Sports Talk with Bo Mattingly and JM Associates.

Fans will get a glimpse of his day-to-day life as well as his upbringing in IL. The next three episodes will air the following three Wednesdays.

BEING P.J. Fleck is the latest in a long string of behind-the-scenes football documentaries, from HBO's Hard Knocks, to Amazon's All or Nothing, to Showtime's A Season With to Netflix's Last Chance U.
