Amazon Prime Video to premiere Andy Murray docu on 29 Nov
MUMBAI: Amazon Prime Video today announced the documentary Andy Murray: Resurfacing, an unprecedented account of the tennis champion’s painstaking rehabilitation from injury told in his own words, will launch exclusively on Prime Video.
With inside access to his life, it follows Andy from the inner sanctum of surgical theatres to the most intimate of spaces shared with family and team members. The feature-length documentary will be available exclusively on Prime Video on 29th November in over 200 countries and territories worldwide.
When Andy Murray stepped onto the tennis court to play at Wimbledon in 2017 he was the world number one, fighting to defend his Wimbledon title. In the resulting two-year period since sustaining a chronic hip injury, his ranking has slid towards triple figures, as he’s undergone multiple surgeries in the hope of being fit enough to compete on the world stage once more. At a time when the world’s media were about to write him off, and his devoted fan base was waiting with bated-breath for news on his recovery, the former World No 1 decided to tell his story exclusively in this cinematic documentary.
“This revealing documentary will take viewers on an emotional journey with Andy, giving them an inside look into the strength and determination of a true champion, as he fights his way back to the highest level of the sport after a near career-ending injury,” said Martin Backlund, Head of Content for Amazon Prime Video, UK. “The documentary adds to the great collection of live sports and behind-the-scenes sports documentaries only available on Prime Video, including recent fan favourites All or Nothing: Manchester City, Inside Borussia Dortmund and El Corazón de Sergio Ramos.”
The documentary joins Prime Video’s growing line-up of sports documentaries, including its Amazon Original sports docuseries All or Nothing: Manchester City, All or Nothing: New Zealand All Blacks, and All or Nothing seasons with American Football teams, as well as Take Us Home: Leeds United, Make Us Dream, Inside Borussia Dortmund and El Corazón de Sergio Ramos.
In the UK, Prime members also have exclusive access to live tennis matches with the US Open, 37 ATP Tour events and from 2020 WTA tournaments, allowing customers to watch the best in women’s and men’s tennis all in one place for the first time in the UK.
