Beckham has always been one of the most recognizable faces in soccer – even to people who don’t follow the sport closely. Audiences are about to get even more exposure to Beckham as he’s teamed up with Netflix for a four-part docuseries simply titled “Beckham,” which just dropped its first trailer.

Luckily, this doesn’t look like it’s going to be a puff piece for Beckham. He was a superstar at a very young age, which doesn’t always lead to the best decisions. Beckham had some issues in his young years, and it looks like he’ll be addressing them directly in the docuseries.
It also looks like we’ll get a healthy dose of Victoria Beckham, also known as “Posh Spice.” She’s been with him since he was 22 years old, and they remain together to this day. There isn’t anybody who will know the soccer legend as well as she does, so she should have a lot of valuable insight.

Beckham has been in the public eye for so long. There shouldn’t be a lot of secrets revealed that avid soccer fans aren’t aware of. However, it looks like it’ll be an interesting docuseries for people who may not follow soccer so closely.
“Beckham” is directed by Fisher Stevens, who won an Academy Award for his film “The Cove.” He’s got a track record of being a very good documentary filmmaker so that could mean good things for “Beckham.” What will make or break this docuseries is how deep they’re willing to go. Some documentaries and docuseries aren’t willing to show viewers some of the more interesting details of a person’s life. Considering an acclaimed director like Stevens took on the project means that there will likely be some substance for the docuseries.
If “Welcome to Wrexham’s” success has proven anything; it’s that people who may not watch soccer will follow soccer stories as long as they’re interesting. Based on the trailer, it does look like it’s going to be a worthwhile watch. The docuseries will be premiering on Netflix on October 4, so you won’t have to wait long to give it a watch.
