Archie, Peyton and Eli Manning are all familiar with the spotlight, but tonight scenes from the family's background will come to the forefront thanks to ESPN.

'The Book of Manning' debuts tonight at 8 p.m., telling the story of four generations of Mannings, from Archie's father, and how his suicide shaped his college years, to oldest sibling Cooper, who was forced to stop playing football because of a neck injury, talking about how his life with his sons mirrors what he, Peyton and Eli went through in their own upbringing.

ESPN's Chris Strauss has an in-depth look at the program here.
