Messi’s World Cup: The Rise Of A Legend

Premieres on Feb 21

The four-part soccer docu-series follows Lionel Messi as he reflects on the challenges and triumphs he has faced throughout the span of his 17-year career. Defined as a great player, even as a child, the series follows Messi’s ups and downs but mainly focuses on the struggle he endured to finally deliver ultimate glory on the world stage after five World Cup appearances for Argentina. Eventually bringing home a victory in 2022 during his fifth World Cup attempt for the country, the legendary footballer is arguably the most well-renowned footballer in Argentina. Simultaneously exploring the unbearable pressures of what it takes to be Messi, as well as the extraordinary payoff such a phenomenal player feels after victory, the sports docu-series tells its story from the prospect of Messi himself. Along with interviews from teammates, coaches, and others close to Messi, the series strives to tell an uplifting, triumphant story of one of the greatest footballers of all time. More than just a sports story, the series aims to be a human story.
