Power couple, David Beckham (45) and Victoria Beckham (46) have recently closed a $20 million deal with Netflix for a fly-on-the-wall TV series that’ll air in early 2022. This deal comes after David, president of Inter Miami CF and co-owner of Salford City started his media and productions company, Studio 99 (99 refers to the year him and Victoria got married) which is also producing this project. However, Beckham’s representative has refrained from commenting.
The show is built on the couple’s lives and will feature unseen moments from their early days including their journey from two individuals with a burgeoning career to a successful couple. ‘’This is a real coup for Netflix — and will show a completely different side to David, one the public very rarely get to see.’’ A source told The Sun. A camera crew will reportedly follow David around the globe documenting his current life as a global businessman, a loving husband and a doting father to four. “Needless to say, David is bound to come off brilliantly while viewers will get to see Victoria’s quick wit,” the source added.
The series is to begin with a heartfelt clip of David and his beloved late father, Ted playing football in their back garden. Furthermore, Camcorder footages from intimate moments like birthdays, special occasions, festivals and to top it all off, David and Victoria’s early dates will also be featured. The source further revealed : “David’s family are all massive archivers; they’ve been proudly documenting his career since he was a boy and have kept all the old local newspaper cuttings, school records and team photos throughout the years.” Well, lucky for us!
David’s best football moments, including his winning goal against Greece to get England through 2002 FIFA World Cup , will be replayed, along with the worst on pitch moments such as a red card send-off in a match against Argentina in 1998. His former Manchester Utd and Real Madrid teammates, Christiano Ronaldo, Gary Neville, Ryan Gigg will join him on screen only this time for a TV show!
David Beckham and Victoria Beckham two years after they had met, married on July 4, 1999 in a lavish wedding at Luttrellstown Castle in Dublin. At the time, Victoria with a more successful career was topping the charts as a part of a girl band, Spice Girls and was prominently known as ‘Posh Spice’. The former football captain knew she was the one as soon as he laid eyes on her. Watching her rock the stage as ‘Posh Spice’ on TV, David had said to his friend ‘That’s the girl for me and I’m going to get her!’ he revealed in a conversation with The Sun. ‘She’s my idea of perfection. I knew that if she wanted me, we would be together forever’ he had added and sure enough, his words were nothing short of true! Here’s a beautiful tribute to their journey by David on their anniversary.
Exclusive interviews of the couple’s four children ; Brooklyn (21), Romeo (18), Cruz (15) and Harper (9) will be a part of the show. Moreover, David’s pals including James Corden and David Gardner will also make an appearance.
