Liverpool to film documentary series for Jurgen Klopp's final season
Liverpool have confirmed that filming is set to begin on a documentary that will follow the club through the rest of Jurgen Klopp's final season as manager.
It will be filmed, directed and produced by Lorton Entertainment, the company responsible for the likes of the Diego Maradona movie, the Steven Gerrard film, Make Us Dream, on Amazon Prime, plus Coleen Rooney: The Real Wagatha Story on Disney+.
Speaking about the new documentary series, Klopp said: “With this being my final season I thought we should provide a rare opportunity for viewers to have more of an inside look at what makes this club so special: its people, from our fans to our players and those who work so hard behind the scenes, constantly in pursuit of success for Liverpool Football Club.
“Thanks to this new documentary series, viewers will be able to see what I see every day at this great club, and understand those amazing people more.”
Drew Crisp, senior vice-president of digital at LFC, added: “This exciting new multi-episodic documentary will be unique and show the real, authentic side of the club.
“It will not only delve into its rich history and its unrivalled connection with its supporters, but will also explore what makes Liverpool Football Club succeed, on and off the pitch. We’re delighted to have the full backing of Jürgen and everyone across the club.
“This will be a football club documentary series like no other.”
Julian Bird, CEO, Lorton Entertainment, said: “This project will offer supporters an intimate glimpse into one of world football’s greatest institutions, delivering a comprehensive look at the present day and the club’s storied history.
“There’s no better place to film than behind the scenes at a Premier League giant – we know so many companies in our industry are desperate to work with a club of Liverpool’s stature. We’re eager to bring our expertise to the project, and can’t wait to see how this season develops on and off the pitch.”
