Discovery LatAm Producing Diego Armando Maradona Docuseries


Discovery Latin America has revealed it is producing an exclusive series about the life of Argentinian soccer player Diego Armando Maradona based on the account of his daughter Dalma Maradona.

Maradona, also an executive producer, revisits her father’s life in the series tentatively titled La Hija de Dios. She meets people close to the star and builds a personal profile of her father from her own insight, reviving his legacy.

“I am truly happy and moved by this project,” said Maradona. “I’m thankful for the opportunity of rediscovering my father time and again and reliving people’s passion for him, discovering one-off anecdotes and feeling his passion for life, his commitment with his country and his sense of justice, teamwork and sport spirit. It is a loving journey that is helping me understand him even better.”

Michela Giorelli, VP of production and development for Discovery Latin America/US Hispanic, said, “Through Dalma’s intimate narration, this exclusive series produced by Discovery relives the most important moments of her life as the daughter of one of the greatest football players of all time. With unprecedented access to iconic places and people close to Diego Maradona in various corners of the planet, each moment of this story is undoubtedly filled with profound emotions.”

“Dalma invites us to walk along her father’s life and her own story through a compelling and exceptional account, narrated through her own eyes as the daughter of God,” added Lorena Muñoz, director of the series.

La Hija de Dios is produced by Axel Kuschevatzky and Cindy Teperman for Infinity Hill and Karina Castellano, Helen Roca and Gabriela Galaretto for Nativa. It is scheduled to premiere in 2022.
