The rare possibility of having such exceptional access into the life and everyday life of a public figure of the caliber of David Beckham allowed the production to outline an absolutely unprecedented intimate portrait.

A docuseries that shows the behind-the-scenes story of an icon
Beckham will show in four episodes the various backstories of a world football star who is also a cultural icon. David Beckham is one of the most well-known figures on the globe but, although everyone knows who he is, there are few who can say they truly know him. What this docuseries will do is allow the public to enter the life of this character who wrote the history of sport as well as fashion, style (and gossip, let’s not forget) in an incredible way.
The show will take the viewer on a journey that starts from David Beckham’s humble beginnings, when he lived with his family of origin among the working class of East London. This is a work that offers an exceptional example of resilience, determination and courage. In fact, it speaks of a man who built himself entirely on his own thanks to his will and determination, which are as important as his foot (if not more). Through his desire to win and also by fighting hard to find a balance between ambition, love and family, David Beckham has become who he is. That is, a myth.
Like all the greatest stories, there will be ups and downs, showing the other side of the coin, the peaks of success, fame, prestige and everything, without ever leaving out every important moment of David Beckham’s existence, even in negative.
The result is a real swing of emotions, in a very engaging way of telling the surprising story of one of the most famous athletes of all time.
