NEW YORK (AP) NFL Films is producing a virtual reality series showing life in and around the league.

The nine-part series announced Thursday by the NFL and Google will debut Thanksgiving Day on the league's YouTube channel . Later episodes will be available on a virtual reality app designed for Google's Daydream.

It's the NFL's first foray into producing content in virtual reality.

The series will give viewers a 360-degree perspective for players, coaches, executives, cheerleaders and fans showing how they prepare for game day.
