Netflix Lands US$20 Million David Beckham Documentary Series

Netflix Lands US$20 Million David Beckham Documentary Series

According to Variety, retired soccer great and style icon – David Beckham – is set to be the subject of an upcoming Netflix documentary series already valued at approximately US$20.6 million (£16 million), appearing alongside former Spice Girl, designer, and longtime wife – Victoria Beckham (née Adams) / Posh Spice – as well as their young family; sons Brooklyn (21), Romeo (18), Cruz (15), and daughter Harper (9). 

Exploring the rise of David Beckham as a global superstar through personal photographs and camcorder footage, like many sports documentaries on the immediate horizon, the untitled Beckham family series will aim to recreate the global success of ESPN’s Michael Jordan retrospective, The Last Dance.

On the more present side of events, as per Deadline, a camera crew will follow 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,” says 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.”

Reports indicate this intimate fly-on-the-wall affair will also be co-produced by the Beckham patriarch’s Studio 99 company. So far, official word has still yet to come from Netflix themselves, who have remained rather tight-lipped about the David Beckham documentary to the point of declining to comment.

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