David Beckham documentary, Netflix Confirmed 

Netflix has confirmed a documentary series starring David Beckham is in production, following growing speculation.

The former footballer, 47, will expose his 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 in the new programme.

It will feature a mixture of never-before-seen personal archive footage from the last forty years as well as interviews with David himself, 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 who serves as director and executive producer, along with Academy Award and Emmy Award-winning producer John Battsek.

‘It’s going to be about David’s life post-football, especially the creation of his new team in Miami, but will have some personal content too.
