Second Season of “Undeniable with Joe Buck” Debuts August 10, on AT&T Audience Network

Season 2 Guests Include Sports Legends Brett Favre, Joe Theismann, “Sugar” Ray Leonard and More 

AT&T* will deliver the second season of Joe Buck’s popular show “Undeniable with Joe Buck” Aug. 10 at 8 p.m. ET/PT. This season will only be available on the AUDIENCE® Network for DIRECTV and AT&T U-verse customers.

On the heels of a successful first season that featured a “who’s who” of sports legends, including Derek Jeter, Wayne Gretzky and Michael Phelps, the new season show will yet again feature some of the most prominent athletes of this generation, including Brett Favre, Joe Theismann, “Sugar” Ray Leonard, and Lynn Swann.

Here’s the full schedule:

  • Brett Favre – Aug. 10
  • Kelly Slater – Aug. 17
  • Nick Faldo – Aug. 24
  • Joe Torre – Aug. 31
  • Mike Singletary – Sept. 7
  • Kerri Walsh Jennings – Sept. 14
  • “Sugar” Ray Leonard – Sept. 21
  • Joe Theismann – Sept. 28
  • Tony La Russa – Oct. 5
  • Lynn Swann – Oct. 12

Unique to the second season, several episodes of “Undeniable with Joe Buck,” executive produced by Vince Vaughn’s Wild West Television, were filmed in front of a live studio audience from “The Armory” in San Francisco during the 2016 Super Bowl week. This is a first for the show. Super Bowl week provided an interesting spin on the show’s long form, one-on-one interviews that captivated audiences throughout the show’s first season.

“I have never been more proud of something with my name in the title,” Buck said. “Season 1 was a great start, but I believe we hit our stride in season 2. From Favre to Sugar Ray and all guests in between, people will see new sides of these athletes. I believe every show thus far has been a learning experience… not just for the audience, but for the host as well.”

“Joe Buck’s credentials as a play-by-play man are well known, but with ‘Undeniable’ he’s able to showcase an even more authentic portrayal of his personality.  That’s a big part of what is making the show successful,” Christopher Long, senior vice president, Original Content and Production, AT&T said. “‘Undeniable’ shows our commitment to delivering compelling, exclusive entertainment and sports programming on the AUDIENCE Network.”

Buck is known as the lead play-by-play voice for MLB, the USGA and the NFL on Fox. He has called 18 World Series, 18 MLB All- Star Games, 4 Super Bowls and 2 U.S. Opens.

A winner of 7 Emmy Awards for “Most Outstanding Sports Personality,” Buck went beyond his usual confines of the broadcast booth in Season 1. It displayed his affable, laid-back interviewing skills within the show’s uniquely intimate long-form interview format.

The format provides viewers a more in-depth look into the past, present and future of numerous iconic athletes. DIRECTV and U-verse customers can watch “Undeniable with Joe Buck” and the rest of AUDIENCE Network’s line-up on U-verse Channel 1114 and DIRECTV Channel 239.
