Last month, rumors swirled that retired soccer superstar David Beckham is getting his own Disney+ series.
Although he may have retired from the worldwide sport, it seems that he’s finally scored his own series with the ever-growing streaming giant.
According to Deadline, David Beckham’s upcoming series was officially greenlit by Disney+ titled Save Our Squad. The series will be unscripted as the star returns to his old stomping grounds to mentor younger soccer players struggling to make it to the professional league.
Sean Doyle will direct and serve as executive producer alongside David Beckham. Doyle explains the series as:
“…dramatic, uplifting and full of heart and courage – everything David had in his own playing days.”
