Netflix recently confirmed that “Juventus FC” will be streamed as a television docu-series following the stories of the famous Italian football club, consisting of 4 hour-long episodes with a worldwide release slated for early 2018.
Netflix will follow the most compelling stories and characters in the club, spending personal and professional time with the players both on and off the field, on the road, at home and wherever it takes to capture in depth the real lives that make the Juventus one of the most fascinating teams in the world.
Fans and supporters worldwide will have access to the club “behind the scenes” and will feel closer than ever not only to some of the greatest footballers in history but also to the club that has won six straight league titles.
“It’s a source of pride that Juventus is the first football club to be the subject of a Netflix Original Documentary,” said Federico Palomba, Co-Chief Revenue Officer at the club. “Collaborations of this kind confirm our passion for innovation and being, in every sense, a Sport Entertainment brand. In this way, we are determined to reach fans across the world and millions of Netflix users, who thanks to this docu-series can get to know Juventus from every angle.
“Juventus FC will give audiences a profound understanding of the players, the coaches and management on a deeply personal level that we expect will be groundbreaking.”
Following on the production of other series in Europe, including “Suburra” and the upcoming “Dark”, the Juventus FC docu-series will continue Netflix’s investment in international and Italian content.
Erik Barmack, Vice President of International original series at Netflix said, “Netflix is the home of passionate storytelling, and there are no more passionate fans than the tifosi of the bianconeri. We are excited to have unique, exclusive access to one of the most important squads in the world.”
