David Beckham is to front new Disney Plus factual entertainment series Save Our Squad.
Co-produced by Twenty Twenty, and Studio 99, the global content and production studio co-founded by Beckham, Save Our Squad sees Beckham return to the East London football pitches where he played as a child.
Here he will mentor a young grassroots side who are struggling to survive in the league. Beckham and his team will take these players, their coach, and their community on an uplifting, transformative journey of a lifetime. Save our Squad will be executive produced by Sean Doyle for Disney.
Sean Doyle, Director of Unscripted, commented: “We are so thrilled to welcome David Beckham to Disney Plus. This is a fantastic opportunity to show the importance and impact of grassroots football in communities in the UK. The series will be exciting, dramatic, uplifting and full of heart and courage – everything David had in his own playing days!”
David Beckham commented: “It is fantastic to be making Save Our Squad with Twenty Twenty and to shine a light on the kind of grassroots football that I experienced growing up and which gave me so much at the start of my life in the game.”
Disney Plus plans to create 50 productions in Europe by 2024.
