David Beckham Netflix Documentary is In The Works
Fisher Stevens (Palmer and We Go Green, The Cove), John Battsek, and other Oscar winners are presently working on a Netflix docuseries about David Beckham (One Day in September, Searching for Sugar Man, Winter on Fire). Together with Battsek, Stevens will executive produce and direct the series. The television show will examine the former soccer player’s working-class beginnings in London and his ascent to the status of one of the most well-known athletes in the world. The famous soccer player announced the news on Instagram.
The star spoke about his relationship with the streamer in his Instagram post, which included three images of himself from his youth, his soccer playing days, and the present.”I’m excited to confirm that I am partnering with @Netflix on a documentary series about my life and career.” Editors, Chris King (Senna, Amy) and Bjorn Johnson (Don’t F**k With Cats, Bad Sport) will also be contributing to the project. Filmmaker Tim Cragg will capture the series on camera (Three Identical Strangers, Billie).
His personal and professional lives will be extensively explored in the David Beckham Netflix series. It will include never-before-seen home videos from his personal life. Interviews with him, his family, and others who had a big impact on his career will also be included. The Hollywood Reporter says that it might talk about the supposed scandals and bad press he has gotten over the years.
The British tabloid The Sun first covered the incident in 2020. With some changes from that initial report, the most recent information supports the basic hypothesis. Initially, it was said that the David Beckham Netflix series would be similar to the Kardashians in that it would follow the lives of him and his family. This won’t be a fly-on-the-wall experience, more like a standard documentary. Studio 99, the production company run by the soccer player, will collaborate with Battsek’s business, Ventureland. There is no information on when it will be available on the streaming service.
