David Beckham to Lead New Disney+ Series ‘Save Our Squad’. A new unscripted series is coming to Disney+! Former professional soccer player, David Beckham will be leading the series for Disney+. Beckham shared with Variety, “It is fantastic to be making Save Our Squad with Twenty Twenty and to shine a light on the kind of grassroots football that I experienced growing up and which gave me so much at the start of my life in the game. I was so fortunate to have a long and successful playing career and now to have the opportunity to give back to these communities as a mentor is incredible. Developing and nurturing young talent is so important in the game and it is great to be working with Disney+ on this project.”
According to a synopsis from Variety, “[Save our Squad] will find the football icon returning to East London football pitches where he played as a child. He will mentor a young grassroots side who are struggling to survive in the league. Beckham and his team will take the players, their coach and their community on a transformative journey of a lifetime. “Save our Squad” will be executive produced by Disney commissioner Sean Doyle, who joined the company last year.” The synopsis continues: “Save Our Squad is the latest commission as part of Disney’s 50-title originals plan for Europe, which it hopes to reach by 2024.”
EP Sean Doyle shared, “This is a fantastic opportunity to show the importance and impact of grassroots football in communities in the U.K. The series will be exciting, dramatic, uplifting and full of heart and courage – everything David had in his own playing days.”
A premiere date for Save our Squad has yet to be determined. Be sure to check back here at Chip and Co. for updates and all things Disney+!
