About "Back in the Game”

Professional athletes and entertainers are some of the best paid people in the world. But the reality is, their careers are often short-lived and they can find themselves in serious financial distress when the big paychecks stop coming their way. Now, in this four-episode series, former MLB superstar and mega-successful businessman, Alex Rodriguez, gives back by mentoring athletes and entertainers who’ve fallen on hard times and need help getting back on their feet. Join Alex as he motivates and advises Evander Holyfield, Ryan Lochte, Nicole Eggert, and Brian Dunkleman on how to reduce their crushing debt, repair their reputations, and launch new business careers so they can re-charge their financial futures. After years of living large, will they be willing to listen to their new coach?
