There is perhaps nothing further removed from the glitz and glamour of Hollywood than that of Green Bay, Wis.
Slated to run from March 11-15 at Universal Studios in California and directed by NFL Player Engagement and Film Life Inc., the four-day program, featuring 22 current and former NFL players, will cover a multitude of topics centering on the movie industry, including producing, film financing, directing and screen writing, to name a few.
The 28-year-old Bishop, selected by Green Bay in the sixth round of the 2007 draft out of California, will be joined by, among others, Shaun Alexander; Philip Buchanon; Darrius Heyward-Bey; Gerald McCoy; Jared Odrick; Walter Thurmond; and Justin Tyron.
During the program, participants will have the chance to shoot and edit a short film within Universal Studios—the largest working motion picture studio in the world.
For his career, the 6’2”, 241-pound Bishop, who missed the 2012 season upon sustaining a torn right hamstring in the Packers’ preseason opener against San Diego in August, has accumulated nine sacks, one interception, seven forced fumbles and 201 tackles (solo) in 69 games.
