Manchester United and France star Paul Pogba has reportedly penned a deal with Amazon Studios for the release of a docu-series in 2022 titled The Pogmentary.
The midfielder will collaborate with Paris-based production house, Black Dynamite, as a French Amazon Original.
The show will document Pogba’s rise to fame on the field as well as becoming one of the most marketable footballers in the world, allowing fans to “discover his world through previously unreleased footage from his childhood and conversations with his family, friends and teammates. His fans will also learn more about his life, passions and accomplishments, looking at what were the key moments on his journey to become one of the most influential football players and icons in the world.”
Georgia Brown, Head of European originals at Amazon Studios, is quoted by VERSUS when talking about next year’s launch saying: “We all know Paul for what he can do on a football pitch, but his influence reaches much further and he is without doubt an icon for an entire generation. Through the unprecedented access afforded to us, Prime Video will show the man behind the fame, delving into his life off the pitch and letting him tell his story in his own words.”
Pogba’s impact away from the pitch will be particularly highlighted in The Pogmentary. From his alternating haircuts to promoting ‘the dab’ celebration, there will be plenty to explore on the life of a man that has achieved domestic and international success, including winning the 2018 World Cup with France.
