Apple TV+ Bowing Soccer Doc Ahead of MLS Subscription Streaming Service

Apple TV+ Dec. 14 announced it will debut a new soccer documentary series, “Super League: The War for Football,” on Jan. 13, 2023.

The four-part series documents the high stakes battle behind a planned breakaway soccer league featuring the world’s biggest clubs. With access to league presidents, club owners and the architects behind the European Super League, the docuseries brings viewers the untold story of how and why this controversial idea was hatched and the ensuing battles that were formed to fight it.

The series is directed and executive produced by All Rise Films’ News & Documentary Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Jeff Zimbalist (“The Two Escobars,” “The Line,” “Momentum Generation”), and executive produced by Words + Pictures’ Emmy Award-winning Connor Schell and produced by Libby Geist (“The Last Dance,” “30 for 30,” and the Oscar-winning “O.J. Made in America”).

The doc, which comes ahead of Apple’s co-branded Major League Soccer Pass subscription streaming service launching next February, underscores the tech giant’s expanding offering of nonfiction content, including a recently announced feature documentary about the life and career of seven-time Formula One world champion Sir Lewis Hamilton; newly announced documentary film, “Underrated,” featuring NBA star Stephen Curry; the Emmy Award-nominated four-part documentary event series, “They Call Me Magic,” chronicling the life and career of two-time NBA Hall of Famer Earvin “Magic” Johnson; “The Dynasty,” a new series about the New England Patriots, from Brian Grazer and Ron Howard’s Imagine Documentaries, in association with NFL Films; “The Long Game: Bigger Than Basketball” about basketball’s Makur Maker; “Make or Break,” featuring behind-the-scenes access to the world’s best surfers as they battle for the top title at the World Surf League Championship Tour; and “Greatness Code,” a short-form unscripted series directed by Gotham Chopra and co-produced by Uninterrupted and Religion of Sports, which just premiered its second season.
