FOOTBALL SUPERSTAR TERRELL OWENS DEBUTS ON THE SEASON FINALE OF USA NETWORK’S NEW HIT SERIES “NECESSARY ROUGHNESS”
Six-time pro bowl receiver and one of the most electrifying personalities of our time,
Terrell Owens makes his debut on the season finale of USA’s hit series NECESSARY ROUGHNESS
tomorrow, Wednesday September 14 at 10/9c.
Owens plays Maurice “The Minefield” Manningfield, the star player on the Chicago Warriors, the team that the NY Hawks face in the playoffs.
He’s also TK’s (Mehcad Brooks) lifelong rival.
Owens shot the episode on location in Atlanta, GA where NECESSARY ROUGHNESS is filmed, including scenes in the Georgia Dome.
In recent interviews, Owens talked about what he respects about the fictional football world that NECESSARY ROUGHNESS portrays;
“I think there’s some definite parallels to what goes on in the football world and what you see on the show.
And I think that’s what’s so refreshing about the show, because these are the type of things that players go through on
an everyday basis in the outside world, and the fans really don’t get to see.”
Owens also added,
“I like shows like this because it definitely gives an insight to the particulars that go on with players and with the business of football.
“Some of that gets taken away by all the glitz and glamour of the actual game days.”
Also in the season finale…
As the Hawks head into the playoffs, Dani (Callie Thorne) takes on an unexpected new client and Nico (Scott Brooks) has to decide where his loyalties lie.
