Amazon is entering La Liga for a new sports documentary that will take a look inside the Spanish football league.
Six Dreams will follow six individuals through their 2017-2018 season in Spain’s top-flight competition, including Atletico’s Saul Niguez and Bilbao’s Inaki Williams. Three players, two coaches and a club president will give their perspective of the beautiful game, offering a unique insight into the daily challenges and struggles of professional football at its highest level. Whether they are up-and-coming names or veterans, all six participants will give an intimate look at who they are on and off-field and what it takes to be in one of the world’s most popular sport leagues.
Founded in 1984, the Liga de Fútbol Profesional comprises the 42 teams that make up the first and second divisions of professional football in Spain.
