2022 SPORTS DOCUMENTARY GOLD WINNER - NEW YORK FESTIVALS TV AND FILM AWARDS
“A nostalgic romp through the ’90s” ★★★★
An all-star documentary series, produced in collaboration with David Beckham’s STUDIO 99, charting the creation and evolution of the Premier League from 1992 to 2000. From Jack Walker’s Blackburn dream, to Sir Alex Ferguson’s lows and highs behind the scenes at Manchester United, with the arrival of the unknown Arsène Wenger (Arsène Who?), and the birth of one of the greatest sport rivalries in UK history; this series brings together iconic stories and fairytale seasons from the point of view of managers, players, fans and powerful business brokers.
FEVER PITCH has high drama and entertainment; with gripping sporting narratives and conflicts driving it. It is also a measure for how Britain has changed in the last 30 years. Challenging everything from our post war idea of masculinity, to the power of the media, the erosion of community, wealth, celebrity and globalisation. We tell the stories that were reported and the hidden gems that many would rather forget.
With warm, witty interviews and packed with incredible archive footage from on and off the pitch, this is a series not just for die-hard football fans, but for all the family, old and young.
Featuring: David Beckham, Eric Cantona, Sir Kenny Dalglish, Alan Shearer, Les Ferdinand, Gary Neville, Keith Gillespie, Martin Keown, Ray Parlour, Paul Parker, Peter Schmeichel, David James, Richard Shaw, David Dein, Martin Edwards, Paul Merson, Jamie Redknapp, Vinnie Jones, Graeme Le Saux, Gary Pallister, Chris Sutton and many more.
Series Two is currently in production for Paramount+. In this series, the millionaires become yesterday’s news as the arrival of the billionaire club owners is about to change everything – everything except the high drama between superstars on and off the pitch.
