Adding to Our Roster of Sports Doc Series With Bad Sport, Untold Volume 2, and Last Chance U: Basketball Season 2

Brandon Riegg, VP of Unscripted and Documentary Series

Whether you're a sports junkie or a casual spectator, there's more to fandom than the love of the game. Behind the great competitions and athletes are rich backstories that run the gamut of emotion layered with ambition, loss, and legacy.

Great documentary series can take viewers past the arenas and allegiances to a world of real, raw, compelling - and sometimes controversial - stories beyond the sports. On Netflix, our recent series range from the intimate portrait of a legend like Michael Jordan in The Last Dance or an icon like Naomi Osaka, the behind-the-scenes energy of a global league like Formula 1: Drive to Survive or the grit of underdogs like Last Chance U, and the pivotal moments in history like Untold or the dark downfall of a figure like Killer Inside: The Mind of Aaron Hernandez.

Today we're excited to announce three additions to our roster of sports-related documentary series. These shows join our slate of previously-announced upcoming projects including season four of Formula 1: Drive to Survive, a series following NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace, Heart of Invictus from Archewell Productions, and more.
