Carrie Underwood and husband Mike Fisher are “speaking freely” about love, family, and faith in a new, four-part digital short film series from I Am Second called Mike and Carrie: God & Country.
“You get to hear Carrie and Mike look right into the lens and share meaningful moments of their life,” Jonah Ingram, one of the series’ producers, exclusively tells ET.
John Humphrey, who is also a producer on the series, tells ET that this new series is a follow-up to Fisher’s involvement in I Am Second’s White Chair short film series in 2014, where he opened up about personal and professional struggles early on in his career before returning to his faith.
“I think it was important for us to look at Mike’s story and the evolution of him as a hockey star and then moving into retirement and what that entailed,” Humphrey shares. “Carrie is still out in the limelight and she’s still performing and she still has her career. Mike, as all athletes do when they hit retirement, got to understand [his] identity. That was something that was important to Mike and important for us to show that.”
“[Mike] felt that to have Carrie along would be the best way to tell some of that story,” Humphrey adds. “He talked with Carrie and Carrie agreed to go ahead to be on it as well.”
The four-part series will consist of weekly episodes, on Wednesdays, beginning May 27, that are less than 10 minutes each. “This is not The Last Dance,” Humphrey jokes, referring to the Michael Jordan docuseries.
