Football Brothers Brendon and Femi Ayanbadejo 'Brother Up' With Kush

TV SANTA MONICA, Calif., Oct. 24 /PRNewswire/ --

KushTV, the original and first multi-platform, high-definition broadband and lifestyle network announced today the launch of the new series "Brother Up" starring NFL's favorite brothers, Chicago Bears' Brendon Ayanbadejo and 11 year veteran, Femi Ayanbadejo. The show brings the heat from the field to the streets as KushTV grants viewers their backstage pass into the lives of the NFL siblings.

KushTV will air episodes exclusive on their interactive network intimately following the life on and off the field. Viewers can expect to witness everything from what it takes to get physically and mentally prepared for Sunday's big game, unpredictable adventures with top notch players such as Lance Briggs, Brian Urlacher, and Devin Hester, the importance of manicures and pedicures and constant brotherly bickering and competitive nature; from everything from who can bench press more to who has prettier feet. KushTV will capture the heart-wrenching departure as Femi is cut from the team, his struggle to stay on top and when Brendon is left to represent for both their dreams.

"We got our first lessons in the mean streets of Chicago," states Femi. "KushTV has provided an outlet that allows us to tell our story of struggle and hope. It allows us a way to interact with our fans as well as people who have never heard of the Ayanbadejo Brothers."

"Our partnership with KushTV could not have come at better time," says Michael Skolnik, President of Soze Productions.

"They have prominent partnerships with major websites like MySpace and YouTube and a dedicated following on their own site The brothers really love what KushTV has done with their shows and feel the partnering will serve us well as KushTV is an expert in online distribution."

This show is the second sports installment on the network with Perfect Picks starring the Olly Girls dominating the video charts of YouTube and MySpace.

"Our partnership with the Ayanbadejo brothers further signifies KushTV's relevance in all areas of entertainment," states Aaron Justin, Co-Founder of KushTV.

"Working with Brendon and Femi broadens our playing field and bridges hardcore NFL fans with those who have no previous sports knowledge."

KushTV currently has branded channel partnerships with Helio, Joost, YouTube, and Akimbo and will release more interactive high definition programming in the forthcoming months.
