Major League Soccer (MLS) is reportedly starting production on a yet-to-be-named eight-part docuseries covering its 2024 season, produced by Box to Box Films, an award-winning documentary production company, and distributed on Apple TV+.
Between now and late February (the season opens on Feb. 21), discussions around the series’ format and subjects, which are also to be determined, will continue in earnest, MLS’ EVP of Media Seth Bacon told the Sports Business Journal.
“Working with Apple as our media rights partner, having a long-term deal with them, really started to galvanize these conversations, and put us in a really strong position to say, ‘Alright, this is that moment. Let’s take advantage of it,’” Bacon said.
Apple and MLS already cooperate for the MLS Season Pass. The subscription-based service gives viewers access to every Major League Soccer game during the regular MLS season.
However, MLS Season Pass is a separate subscription and available to anyone with the Apple TV app, while the new docuseries is set to be made available separately on Apple TV+.
