Two years ago, Variety announced that retired football great and style icon – David Beckham – would be the subject of a Netflix documentary series after inking a deal valued at approximately £16 million / $28 million. The report indicated Becks would appear alongside former Spice Girl, designer, wife Victoria Beckham (née Adams) and their young family: Brooklyn (23), Romeo (19), Cruz (17), plus daughter Harper (11). 

Today, the man himself has finally spoken publicly about the matter:

“I’m excited to confirm that I am partnering with Netflix on a documentary series about my life and career. The series will feature unseen archives, untold stories, as well as interviews with the people who have been a part of my journey.”

Beckham also revealed the series is being directed and produced by Academy Award winners Fisher Stevens and John Battsek in collaboration with his own operation Studio 99.

As we noted in earlier coverage, and as alluded to in the latest statement, the untitled David Beckham docuseries will explore his rise as a global superstar through quite an intimate lens. Like many sports documentaries released in this era of content, it’ll also aim to recreate the global success of ESPN’s Michael Jordan retrospective The Last Dance.

According to Deadline, a camera crew has followed David Beckham closely to provide an inside look at his life beyond the star athlete days — as a businessman, philanthropist, celebrity, his involvement with US soccer team Inter Miami, and of courses, his perennial role as husband + father.

“This is a real coup for Netflix and will show a completely different side to David, one the public very rarely get to see,” said an unidentified source.

“David’s family are all massive archivers. They’ve been proudly documenting his career since he was a boy and have kept all the old local newspaper cuttings, school records, and team photos throughout the years.”

We’ll bring you the updates as soon as they come.
