Disney Plus has announced a brand new series in collaboration with David Beckham.
Titled Save Our Squad, the original will see the former Manchester United and LA Galaxy player return to the UK to mentor a grassroots team.
The series will be produced by Twenty Twenty and Beckham’s own production company Studio 99.
Speaking of the announcement, Beckham said: “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. I was so fortunate to have a long and successful playing career and now to have the opportunity to give back to these communities as a mentor is incredible. Developing and nurturing young talent is so important in the game and it is great to be working with Disney Plus on this project.”
Disney Plus’s director of unscripted in EMEA Sean Doyle added: ” The series will be exciting, dramatic, uplifting and full of heart and courage – everything David had in his own playing days.”
