RELIVE SUPER BOWL XXXVII AND THE TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS INCREDIBLE ROAD TO GLORY WITH THE SUPER BOWL XXXVII CHAMPIONS VIDEO ARRIVING IN STORES TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 11, 2003 NFL Films and Warner Home Videos Release Super Bowl Video in Record Time BURBANK, CA, February 6, 2003 - Twenty-six seasons ago, NFL Films produced The Birth of the Bucs, a documentary that chronicled the struggle of a then NFL expansion team. Now, NFL Films presents The Super Bowl XXXVII Champions Video, starring the recently-crowned world champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The exciting three-hour DVD is available through Warner Home Video, the leader in home entertainment, beginning at 12:01 a.m. ET on Tuesday, February 11. From the opening kickoff to the hoisting of the Vince Lombardi Trophy, football fans have the opportunity to relive the Buccaneers' glorious triumph, only 16 days after the final whistle sounded at Super Bowl XXXVII in San Diego - a record turnaround for the Super Bowl video. "This DVD shows why Tampa Bay had Oakland's number every step of the way in its 48-21 victory," says NFL Films President Steve Sabol. "Coach Jon Gruden and safety John Lynch agreed to wear NFL Films microphones during the game and their combined commentary gives fans a perspective they didn't see during the original television broadcast." NFL Films producers David Plaut and Todd Schmidt had just days to pour over more than 135,000 feet of film captured by 22 camera and sound crews and edit it into The Super Bowl XXXVII Champions Video. "This is our version of the two-minute drill, but without the usual bye week between the Super Bowl and the championship games, it's like we've burned all of our timeouts," says Plaut, who has been producing the Super Bowl Champions Video since 1985. "Besides the Super Bowl, we have to cover all the regular season games and the playoffs. But thanks to advances in DVD technology, we've been able to give fans more special features, including some we've never been able to offer until now." This year's championship release is the most extensive and in-depth Super Bowl highlight video in NFL Films history. Besides featuring stunning cinematography and exclusive all-access sound, the DVD contains an unprecedented two hours of extended programming to complement the traditional one-hour highlight of the game. For the first time in NFL Films history, the DVD includes: * All of the key action from the network broadcast * Radio play-by-play * Pre-game and Post-game analysis by veteran analysts Ron Jaworski and Merril Hoge * Behind-the-scenes coverage from Super Bowl Week in San Diego * Coverage of the regular season, playoffs and Super Bowl "Tampa Bay fans, who are among the most passionate NFL fans in the country, will love The Super Bowl XXXVII Champions DVD, because it will provide them with comprehensive coverage of this amazing season and their team's crowning moment," says Doug Wadleigh, Vice President of Marketing, WHV. "As Buccaneers fans wait for their team to make another run at the Super Bowl, they will be able to keep their championship spirit alive through this great memento." For Super Bowl XXXVII in San Diego, NFL Films, the recipient of 82 Emmy Awards, utilized a 22-person camera and sound crew, who shot over 135,000 feet of film. The NFL Films Super Bowl Videos are among the highest-selling sports videos of all-time.
