"We hope that viewers have as much fun watching Jennings Journey as we are having filming it," said Greg and Nicole Jennings in a joint statement. "Being able to share our story while connecting with our fans is incredible. What Aimee and her team at FamiLeague are doing to highlight good family-friendly stories in professional sports is both innovative and appreciated."

"One of FamiLeague's goals is to change the narrative around professional athletes by highlighting the positive family values and experiences these dedicated men and women create with their families," said Aimee Helfand, FamiLeague's CEO and founder.

Helfand, who is also known for creating BabyLeague, a trusted digital resource for new parents and families, went on to say that "the scale that YouTube provides combined with the rise of open social and digital platforms gives FamiLeague and these influencers a unique opportunity to create, publish and syndicate their authentic stories."

FamiLeague will continue partnering with professional athletes and influencers to build multi-platform franchises across digital while providing exciting opportunities for existing and future brand partners who want to reach these influencers' highly engaged fan bases. The company is in production on several other shows that will continue to expand its digital reach around existing pillars.

The vision for FamiLeague is to continue to expand the family vertical with sports as the anchor for the company. BabyLeague will continue its rapid growth as a valuable asset within the FamiLeague portfolio.
