New Apple TV+ Doc Series Spotlights Lionel Messi


Apple TV+ has lined up an as-yet-untitled six-part documentary event featuring exclusive behind-the-scenes access to Lionel Messi as he makes his debut in Leagues Cup and Major League Soccer.

After more than 20 years between Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain and winning the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 with the Argentina national football team, Messi recently made a landmark decision to join Major League Soccer and Inter Miami CF. The series features unprecedented access to Messi and his new Inter Miami CF family.

The documentary event is executive produced by Emmy Award winner Tim Pastore (Free Solo, Jane), Emmy and Tony Award winners Patrick Milling-Smith and Brian Carmody and Emmy Award winner Matt Renner (Free Solo, Limitless with Chris Hemsworth) of SMUGGLER Entertainment, alongside Scott Boggins (The Circus, 24/7). The series is produced for Apple by SMUGGLER Entertainment and produced in association with Major League Soccer.
