Following the success of ‘Last Chance U’, the American Football documentary series, Netflix is producing another one about Italy’s historic football team, Juventus. The Bianconeri will star in a new four-part documentary series that will be launched by Netflix in early 2018. Each 60-minute episode will be available exclusively on the streaming service, and it will give a chance to fans from all over the world to enter the Juventus Stadium, experience the matches, follow the training sessions, and the personal lives of the team members from a behind-the-scenes point of view, the one of coach Massimiliano Allegri.
“It’s a source of pride that Juventus is the first football club to be the subject of a Netflix Original Docu-series,” said Juventus Co-Chief Revenue Officer Federico Palomba. “Projects like this one confirm our passion for innovation and for being, in every sense, a sport entertainment brand; but also our determination to reach Bianconeri fans across the world and millions of Netflix users, who, thanks to this documentary will have the opportunity to know Juventus from every angle.”
Erik Barmack, Vice President of international original series at Netflix, commented: “Netflix is the home of passionate storytelling, and there are no more passionate fans than the Bianconeri’s ones. We are excited to have a unique, exclusive access to one of the most important teams in the world.”
