Facebook reportedly paid Bleacher Report millions of dollars for the exclusive rights to the reality show starring the always entertaining Beast Mode. No Script will reportedly air every Thursday via Facebook Watch.
Bleacher Report describes the show as a comedy/reality hybrid, but mainly its just a show about Marshawn having his own show.
"No Script is a comedy/reality hybrid, but really this is a show about Marshawn Lynch having a show. The unscripted series captures Marshawn in random situations, like whipping figure eights in race cars with Lil Rel Howery from Get Out, to whipping a military tank...for real."
According to Reuters, the show, called "No Script," will start streaming this month and consists of eight episodes, all 10 to 15 minutes in length, featuring the always entertaining Marshawn Lynch. The first episode features the 31-year old running back taking racecar driving lessons until he completely ruins the tires of the car.
“We think we have a big hit on our hands,” said Rory Brown, president of Bleacher Report, declining to comment on how many millions Facebook is paying Bleacher Report for the show. “People are going to spend more time on Facebook because of it.”
According to the report, Facebook gave Bleacher Report full creative control, although Brown noted the social media network does have concerns about offensive language, given Marshawn's non-existent filter. From the looks of it, "No Script" is going to be a must-watch show.

Facebook is reportedly willing to spend $1 billion on original shows in an effort to lure viewers and ads to its Facebook Watch video service. Most recently, Facebook partnered with LaVar Ball and the Big Baller Brand to release a 10-episode reality series called, "Ball In The Family," which gives a behind the scenes look into the Big Baller Brand as well as the lives of LaVar's sons, Lonzo, LiAngelo and LaMelo.
