(August 31, 2009 – Burbank, CA) – From Jim Brown and Walter Payton to Barry Sanders and Emmitt Smith, there has been a long line of dominating running backs in the NFL. Back in 2007, the Minnesota Vikings drafted a workhorse out of Oklahoma that would immediately impact the franchise and punish defenders in his way “All Day.” Warner Home Video (WHV), the National Football League (NFL) and NFL Films are teaming up to release “All Day with Adrian Peterson.” This action-packed DVD breaks tackles with an inside look into the life of a budding NFL star. “All Day with Adrian Peterson” will be available October 13, 2009 with a $24.98 SRP. Order due date is September 8, 2009. It’s a work day like any other, except your name is Adrian Peterson, you play running back for the Minnesota Vikings. In just two stunning seasons you have rocketed to the top of your profession, leaving the NFL single-game rushing record and hoards of frustrated defenders in your wake. NFL Films is along for the ride. It’s the story of a young star determined to improve his game and of a team preparing for a season with one goal in mind – that of Super Bowl glory. Additionally, “All Day with Adrian Peterson” documents the career of an NFL star with an all-access pass to his first two seasons with the Minnesota Vikings. NFL Films uses award-winning cinematography and exclusive sound to place fans at every step – from the NFL Draft, to training camp, to game day – of Peterson’s rise to NFL greatness. “After only two seasons in the NFL, Adrian Peterson has already made a profound impact in the NFL and we are proud to showcase his skills on this amazing DVD,” said Don Polite, Executive Director, Partner Brands Marketing, Warner Home Video. “One of the hardest workers in his profession ‘All Day with Adrian Peterson’ gives fans a behind-the-scenes look at NFL life for this terrific player.” “All Day with Adrian Peterson” follows the Minnesota Vikings phenom through his first two historic seasons.
