ESPN Films said the series would feature extensive interviews with Mr. Kaepernick as well as never-before-seen videos from his archives. The documentary will provide “a full first-person account of his journey,” according to NFL Films.
Mr. Kaepernick has been one of the most polarizing figures in sports in recent years. He last played in the NFL with the 49ers in 2016, the year he began kneeling during the national anthem to protest racial injustice in America.
ESPN did not announce a release date or title for the Kaepernick documentary.
