"David Beckham is one of the most known names on the planet, yet few people know who he really is.

"From his humble working-class beginnings in east London, his drive and determination to win, and the battle to find balance between ambition, love and family, David’s story is one of immense ups and downs.

"The series takes you on that rollercoaster and builds a surprising, personal and definitive story of one of the most recognisable and scrutinised athletes of all time."

First announced last year, the documentary series is directed by Oscar winner Fisher Stevens (Before the Flood, The Cove, Palmer) and produced by Oscar winner John Battsek (The Imposter, One Day in September, Searching for Sugar Man).
