NEW YORK, Nov. 15 (UPI) -- The NFL Network's new TV series, "America's Game: The Super Bowl Champions," is offering a veritable all-star lineup of Hollywood narrators.

The 41-part TV series, scheduled to begin airing on the NFL Network Nov. 24, features narration by such acclaimed actors as Laurence Fishburne and Gene Hackman, said a news release from the network.

The lineup of contributors -- who have 10 Academy Award and 22 Emmy Award nominations among them -- includes Alec Baldwin, Ed Harris, Martin Sheen and Bruce Willis.

"A compilation of Hollywood talent like this is hard to find outside of the Academy Awards," said NFL Network President Steve Bornstein. "We are thrilled to have these great actors narrate this landmark series."

Each hour-long episode of the new series will focus on one of the NFL's previous Super Bowl winners and will include first-person accounts from individuals close to the championship teams.

Prior to the series launch, the network will offer an insight into top NFL teams in history with the Nov. 17 special, "America's Game: A Countdown to History."
