Just months after the announcement of its first four-part documentary series about football’s reigning GOAT, complete with exclusive behind-the-scenes access during his triumphant 2022 FIFA World Cup campaign, Apple TV+ has revealed there’s another Lionel Messi docuseries on the horizon — this one focusing on his headline-making move to Major League Soccer, where he’s currently dominating with Inter Miami CF.

The outline for this forthcoming six-part event, which Apple has noted is the “first and only” account of the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner’s new chapter, is as follows…

After over twenty unforgettable and record-breaking years of excellence between Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain, and winning the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 with the Argentina national football team, Leo Messi recently made a landmark decision that forever changed the face of soccer in North America by joining Major League Soccer and Inter Miami CF.

Now, with unprecedented access to Messi and his new Inter Miami CF family, this series takes viewers behind-the-scenes as the greatest player to ever step on the pitch attempts to lead his new team to a Leagues Cup title and beyond.

From selling out record crowds across America at breakneck speed, to his incredible last-minute game-winning goal in his very first match, to moments with Messi and his Inter Miami CF teammates, the series chronicles Leo’s immersion in America, the remarkable journey and transformation of Inter Miami CF, and most significantly, the impact he is currently having on soccer in North America as “Messi Mania” criss-crosses the continent.

“I couldn’t be happier coming to Miami and joining such an amazing group of people and organisation,” said Lionel Messi himself.

“I’m joining with the desire to compete, win and help the club continue to grow. I also think we’re going to really enjoy ourselves, have a good time and that very special things are going to happen.”

Spoilers for those who haven’t been paying attention: in less than a month, Lionel Messi has led the David Beckham-owned Inter Miami CF, a bottom-tier MLS side before his arrival, to the club’s first-ever trophy at the 2023 Leagues Cup final against Nashville SC. Across his opening seven games, Messi has scored 10 goals — each one more dramatic than the last.

Apple TV+’s currently untitled Lionel Messi documentary series is executive produced by the Emmy Award-winning Tim Pastore (Free Solo); Emmy and Tony Award winners Patrick Milling Smith and Brian Carmody; another Emmy Award winner in Matt Renner (Free Solo, Limitless with Chris Hemsworth) of SMUGGLER Entertainment, as well as Scott Boggins (The Circus).

Similar to the title, a release date has yet to be locked in (similar to the other Lionel Messi Apple TV+ doco). Standby for key updates.
