Fulwell73, the indie behind Phenoms, I Am Bolt, The Class of ‘92 Carpool Karaoke, and The Late Late Show, has announced details of new doc series Sunderland ‘Til I Die for Netflix.
The series takes the audience through the highs and lows of SAFC’s first season in the Championship following its relegation the previous year. The exec producers are Leo Pearlman and Ben Turner.
Filmed over a one year period during the whole of last season, Sunderland AFC (Association Football Club) is a fly-on-the-wall style series based on access behind-the-scenes and features interviews with the club’s manager, players, and its fans.
The eight part show was series produced by David Soutar (Mo Farah : No Easy Mile), edit produced by Richard Cooke, co-produced by Heather Greenwood and executive produced by Leo Pearlman and Ben Turner.
Leo Pearlman said “Sunderland Till I Die is a deeply personal series for us at Fulwell – we named our company after the club, it’s where our family is from, and we are still and will always be passionate fans of Sunderland Football Club. It was always a dream to follow our club through the highs and lows of a season and although this past year didn’t give us the success we all craved, we do believe through this story we’ve been able to show the unique relationship every fan has with the club they love and follow, no matter what the circumstances. This series captures the drama and heartbreak that the club experienced last season, told through the eyes of the management, players and most importantly Sunderland’s incredible fans. We hope audiences all across the globe will recognise something in this universal tale of strength in the face of adversity and fall in love with the characters as we have.”
