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 recognisable and scrutinised athletes of all time.
It will feature a mixture of never-before-seen personal archive footage from the last forty years and interviews with David Beckham, his family and friends, and key figures who have been part of his journey both on and off the pitch.
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).
Production Companies: Studio 99 in association with Ventureland.
Edited by Chris King (Senna, Amy), Bjorn Johnson (Don't F**k With Cats, Bad Sport); Cinematography by Tim Cragg (Three Identical Strangers, Billie).
