David Beckham Doc Series in Production at Netflix


Netflix is in production on a multi-part documentary series about the global football star David Beckham.

The docuseries will explore Beckham’s humble working-class beginnings in East London and the drive and determination that led him to become one of the most recognizable athletes of all time. It will feature a mixture of never-before-seen personal archive footage from the last 40 years and interviews with Beckham, his family and friends and key figures who have been part of his journey.

The series is helmed by Academy Award winner Fisher Stevens (PALMER, And We Go Green, The Cove), who serves as director and executive producer, along with Academy Award- and Emmy Award-winning producer John Battsek (One Day in September, Searching for Sugar Man, Winter on Fire).

It is being produced by Studio 99 in association with Ventureland.
