DAZN has acquired the rights to a six-part docuseries on Chelsea FC Women, the dominant team in England’s Women’s Super League.
Per DAZN, the six-part series is called One Team, One Dream and will focus on the club and its achievements from 2019 to 2021.
DAZN, the global sports streaming service, has acquired worldwide rights (excluding Asia-Pacific) to Fulwell 73’s latest sports documentary series One Team, One Dream, a behind-the-scenes look at Chelsea F.C. Women (CFCW), produced in partnership with Waffle Iron Entertainment.
Produced and directed by Alex Sunderland (The Secret Life of 4 and 5 Year Olds, 24 Hours in A&E) and executive produced by Fulwell 73’s Leo Pearlman and Ben Turner, the six-part series follows the fortunes of Chelsea F.C.Women, an extraordinary squad of players performing at the most prestigious levels of club and international football. For the first time, cameras have captured the extraordinary drama, passion, and pressure of life at the top of the fastest growing sport on the planet.
The series tells the tale of a remarkable period (2019-2021) when the team needed to regain their status at the top in a world where the doors are finally flung open for women football. Through the season we explore the highs and lows of an increasingly professional, commercialised and highly competitive game and all the added pressure those stakes bring.
No trailer for the series appears to be available, which is disappointing.
Given the continued popularity of the FA WSL, both in England and across the world, I think there will definitely be some level of interest in this series. Good on DAZN for making at least the first episode available for free on YouTube as well.
The first episode of One Team, One Dream premieres on both DAZN and DAZN’s UEFA Women’s Champions League YouTube channel on May 29th.
