    Amazon describes the eight-episode series, filmed last season, as: “Just three years removed from his MVP season, quarterback Cam Newton remains the charismatic star around whom the Panthers revolve. His cast of teammates includes dynamic running back Christian McCaffrey and perennial All-Pro linebacker Luke Kuechly, along with a mix of talented rookies hungry to prove themselves and several veteran stalwarts who know this season might be their last.”

    Many players showed up on the blue carpet ahead of the screening.

    “To see the maybe conversations that happened that you wouldn't normally see,” wide receiver Torrey Smith said. “I mean, they had cameras everywhere but the bathrooms.”

    The Panthers teamed up with NFL Films, giving them an all-access pass on the field.

    “Hopefully it’s all good stuff,” Kuechly said. “I'm sure there's some stuff on there that'll make you cringe a little bit.”

    Amazon announced it would release the series Friday night, but, as a surprise, added it to Amazon Prime a day earlier.
