David Beckham Doc Series in Production at Netflix
Netflix is in production on a documentary series about global football star David Beckham.
The definitive multi-part series will go beyond the shine of stardom to 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 and scrutinized athletes of all time.
It will feature a mixture of never-before-seen personal archive footage from the last forty years, candid current-day moments, and interviews with the family, friends, and football figures who have been part of his journey.
The project 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).
The production company in charge is Studio 99 in association with Ventureland.
The docu is edited by Chris King (Senna, Amy), Bjorn Johnson (Don’t F**k With Cats, Bad Sport) with Cinematography by Tim Cragg (Three Identical Strangers, Billie).
