Liverpool To Star in Behind The Scenes TV Show

Thu 26th Apr 2012 | Television & Broadcasting

Fans of Liverpool FC will get a unique insight into what goes on behind the scenes with the announcement today that they have teamed up with FOX Soccer to participate in a groundbreaking new documentary series.

The project entitled 'Our Liverpool: Never Walk Alone' will see Liverpool open its doors for unprecedented insider access, in a six-part series.

This original series is being produced by FOX Soccer and will provide over 100 million viewers a groundbreaking look at one of sport's most historic clubs in the world's most watched football league.

"This is going to be a truly remarkable series for every football fan on earth, watching the inner workings of one of the world's truly great clubs, and seeing things no one outside the inner sanctum has seen or experienced before," insists FOX Sports Media Group Chairman and CEO David Hill. 

"Liverpool FC is cherished by its community and hundreds of millions of fans worldwide. Working with a team so unique, and wrapped in so much history, is a natural fit for a project of this magnitude and uniqueness."

"I am delighted that David Hill, David Nathanson and the team at Fox are producing this unique series," enthused Club Chairman Tom Werner. "I expect that it will be compelling programming as Liverpool will provide unprecedented access. This will be an amazing opportunity for our fans to see a new side of the Club and for us to reach out to many more potential supporters around the world who will come to understand what makes Liverpool FC so special."

Working directly with Liverpool's ownership and management, FOX Soccer will take its cameras inside the Anfield and Melwood dressing rooms to show fans the players and manager at work.

Episodes will continue through the club's July tour of North America, with FOX Soccer's production crew following the team on and off the field as Liverpool prepare for the new Barclays Premier League season and contest the first few matches of its 2012-2013 campaign.

"Anyone who supports, plays for, or works at this football club knows how unique and special it is and how much it means to so many," claims Liverpool Managing Director Ian Ayre.

"This project creates a fantastic opportunity to allow people across the world to have a glimpse of the inner workings of the club following the lives of our staff, our players and our fans, all of whom make up everything that is Liverpool Football Club."

FOX Soccer’s General Manager, David Nathanson, said: "Our goal is to capture the essence of what it means to be a part of Liverpool Football Club in an authentic manner, and no producer has more experience with this style of story-telling than Scott Boggins.

"Scott's body of work is remarkable, giving fans a true peak behind the curtain into the lives of sport's biggest teams, athletes and coaches. Scott has proven his ability to capture these inner workings in a truly organic manner, and now he has the opportunity to tell Liverpool FC's rich story to a global audience."
