Netflix is working on an all-access docuseries featuring the 2024 Boston Red Sox. And according to John Kruk, the Philadelphia Phillies might be on deck.

During Philadelphia’s Wednesday night game against the Red Sox at Fenway Park, Kruk noted the team’s communications coordinator Lauren Testa was in attendance., prompting him to reveal something that he wasn’t sure whether it was supposed to be revealed.

“Lauren Testa is here. She’s talking to people from Major League Baseball about…can I say?” Kruk said with pause. “I’ll tell you after Bryce hits this double.”

Play-by-play voice Tom McCarthy quickly noted he couldn’t advise Kruk on what could be said because he had no idea what Testa was talking to Major League Baseball about.

“We’ll let you know, we’ll let you know.” Kruk promised. “Netflix is here doing a thing on the Red Sox. They’re here every day with them. And they wanted to talk about maybe doing the Phillies at some point down the road. You know, they have access to the field, the clubhouse, the trainer’s room. I’m not sure if our veteran guys would be happy about that.”

Netflix announced their exclusive all-access docuseries with the Red Sox earlier this year, promising to “grant viewers unprecedented access to a Major League Baseball franchise for the first time.” The Red Sox series is scheduled to premiere in 2025.

Without knowing whether the Red Sox doc will be successful, Netflix is already preparing for a second installment of the series, according to Kruk. And if Netflix is going to attempt to make this an annual show, the Phillies should be on the short list of teams that would generate interest. Passionate fanbase, recognizable players, championship aspirations.
