Prime Video has recently announced that they will air the “99” documentary series to honour the treble-winning Manchester United team. It will cover their monumental feat of winning the Premier League, FA Cup, and the UEFA Champions League across 10 days, to end the 1998/99 football season.
The UK original documentary series will be launched on Prime Video in 2024 across 240 countries and territories. It will feature exclusive interviews with the players who were part of the treble-winning Manchester United team, including David Beckham, Gary Neville, Paul Scholes, Peter Schmeichel, and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who went on to manage the Red Devils in recent times, after scoring the late winning goal in the UEFA Champions League final against Bayern Munich at the Camp Nou in Barcelona.
The 99 documentary series on Manchester United will have the yet-to-be-seen archive footage and behind-the-scenes videos. The fans of the club will also be included in this all-inclusive original programming.
It is billed by Prime Video as “both a love letter to one of the greatest achievements in world football and the story of a group of players who were recruited, coached and moulded by Sir Alex Ferguson to create history.” They also stated that every perspective and viral moment of the triumph for the Red Devils will be remembered in “vivid detail.”
According to reports, the UK original documentary series is a collaboration of Ventureland, David Beckham's Studio 99, and Gary Neville's Buzz16. The producers will be John Battsek and Miles Coleman from Ventureland. Kerstin Emhoff for Ventureland, Nicola Howson and David Gardner from Studio 99, and Scott Melvin for Buzz 16 will be the executive producers. Meanwhile, Sampson Collins, who has been the RTS-winning director of Gazza, will direct the 99 documentary series.
