Netflix to launch doc series on Juventus FC next year
MUMBAI: Internet entertainment service Netflix has confirmed that Juventus FC will be a television docu series following the stories of the Italian powerhouse football club, consisting of 4 hour-long episodes and releasing worldwide in early 2018.
Netflix will follow 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. Juventus FC will aim to give audiences an 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’ docuseries will continue Netflix’s investment in international and Italian content.
Netflix VP international original series Erik Barmack said, “Netflix is the home of passionate storytelling, and there are no more passionate fans than tifosi of the bianconeri. We are excited to have unique, exclusive access to one of the most important squads in the world.”

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 docuseries can get to know Juventus from every angle” stated Co-Chief Revenue Officer at the club Federico Palomba.
