It’s finally happened! The guy behind the “I’m just here so I don’t get fined” will be making us laugh on the regular.  Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch has agreed to do a reality show with Facebook.  Bleacher Report announced that the show  entitled “No Script” will start streaming this month.

The show will be eight to ten fifteen minute episodes that will showcase Lynch’s return to football, according to Reuters.  Lynch retired from football in 2016 on the day of Super Bowl 50.  He missed the entire 2016-17 season and instead spent time mentoring players at the University of California, Berkley.  Despite being retired, the Seahawks still owned his player rights which were then traded to Oakland for the 2017 season when he decided to return to professional football. The Raiders signed Beast Mode to a two-year deal.

The first episode will show Lynch testing out race cars and all of the hilarity that happened.  Lynch joins the Ball family who also host a reality show on Facebook.  The show entitled “Ball in the Family” first aired its first two episodes on August 31st and will release new episodes every Sunday, starting this past Sunday September 10th.  The show features an inside look into all three Ball boys as they make the next step in their respective basketball careers.   The shows are a part of Facebook Watch which the social media giant hopes will become the new destination to watch original series.
