The NFL's role in the Warner Brothers film "Little Giants" marks the start of the league's major initiative to get more involved in Hollywood and promote football products, players and sponsors. NFL Properties designed a marketing program for Warner Brothers, creating radio spots and promotions for the 62 markets in which the movie opened.
