Beloved Detroit Lions wide receiver Amon-ra St. Brown will be one of five pass catchers featured in a new Neflix series on NFL titled "Receiver."

The NFL announced Tuesday that the eight-part series follows pass catchers in the 2023 season including: Davante Adams of the Las Vegas Raiders, Justin Jefferson of the Minnesota Vikings, George Kittle of the San Francisco 49ers, Deebo Samuel of the San Francisco 49ers and Amon-Ra St. Brown.​

The show is set to premiere this summer. 

The series is produced by NFL Films, Omaha Productions and 2PM Productions, with executive producers Ross Ketover, Pat Kelleher and Keith Cossrow from NFL Films; executive producers Peyton Manning and Jamie Horowitz from Omaha Productions, and executive producer Patrick Mahomes from 2PM Production, the NFL said. 

St. Brown was the Lions' top target in the last season.

Netflix previously released a show called  "Quarterback." 

"The natural progression is from a pass to a catch, so we're excited to dive into the 'Receiver' world after the success of our 'Quarterback' series," said Gabe Spitzer, vice president, nonfiction sports, Netflix, according to the NFL.
