Netflix is taking a peek behind the football pitch with a new football documentary about Sunderland.
No city loves, or needs, football like Sunderland. As its main industries of shipbuilding and mining have fallen by the wayside, SAFC (Sunderland Association Football Club), has become ever more important as the lifeblood of this unique city in the North East of England. The fans are well known to be some of the most passionate and loyal. But what happens when they start to lose their club, too?
In the era of multi-million dollar sponsorship deals and transfers, where the stakes have never been higher or the rivalries more fierce, this brand new Netflix original series sets at its heart the unfailing passion of this UK Northern town for its beloved football club. The series takes its audience through the highs and lows of SAFC’s first season in the Championship following its painful relegation the previous year.
The show is produced by Fulwell 73 (I am Bolt, The Class of ‘92), with Leo Pearlman and Ben Turner aboard as exec producers. It’s the second major footballing documentary to be commissioned by a streamer, following Amazon Prime Video’s Man City documentary, released this year as part of its “All or Nothing” franchise.
All eight parts of Sunderland Till I Die premiere on Netflix worldwide on Friday 14th December. Here’s the trailer:
Sunderland Till I Die: Season 1 is available on Netflix UK, as part of an £8.99 monthly subscription.
