And here is some more info on what you can expect from the series, plus a video teaser:

Voiced by BBC presenter and former English footballer Gary Lineker, the series follows an intriguing mix of players, coaches and support staff, recounting their daily lives and routines.

Co-produced with Goalhanger Films, the first episode will feature captain Troy Deeney, defenders Younes Kaboul and Sebastian Prodl, and Player Liaison Officer Lorenzo Libutti. Each episode will focus on the club’s preparation for that week’s match, as well as the game itself. NBC Sports Group’s camera crews will be given access to the offices, training facilities, locker rooms, pitch, and tunnel, capturing the unique atmosphere leading up to and throughout the matches.
