FSU football will spend the season being featured Showtime’s reality show “A Season With”, airing every Tuesday night starting September 6th.
Entering the 70th season of college football for Florida State University, the Seminoles will be doing something has never been done before: allowing television cameras to document the entire season both on and off the field as they make a run for a fourth national title.
The cable network Showtime announced that FSU football would be the featured in this year’s edition of “A Season With”. The show, which premieres September 6th (one day after the Ole Miss game) will give fans nearly unlimited access to the daily events for coach Jimbo Fisher’s team:
New episodes will premiere at 10 p.m. ET/PT each Tuesday night as the Seminoles battle through the talent-laden Atlantic Coast Conference and vie for a spot in the College Football Playoff and a shot at the national title.
“There’s no other network delivering such intimate and unbridled access to world-class teams and athletes during the most crucial times of their respective seasons,” said Stephen Espinoza, Executive Vice President & General Manager, SHOWTIME Sports.
“We are very excited to partner with Showtime this season and eager to give college football fans a unique look into our program,” said Head Coach Jimbo Fisher. “At Florida State, we have a tremendous family atmosphere, and we are looking forward to showcasing what makes FSU football special.”
The network also released a trailer for the season long series:
New Season. New Team.

It’s interesting to hear Fisher say such a thing since the head coach has preached about avoiding distractions during his first six seasons in Tallahassee. I have a feeling that the money Showtime will be paying the Seminoles had something to do with this move.
Still, it’s a tremendous moment for the program, which will get a chance to get national exposure during a year that has the potential to be one of the best in their history. FSU fans are going to run out to their cable or satellite providers to make sure they get Showtime for a four month period.
