David Beckham is in talks to host a show for Disney + in which he will mentor a team of young footballers in London.
Deadline understands the show has yet to be cleared up, but conversations are taking place after The Sun reports that producers have played Hackney Marshes, the grassroots mecca of London.
The tabloid newspaper said Beckham would help guide inner city youth after growing up in the London suburb of Leytonstone and becoming a captain in England. Production will begin this summer, added The Sun.
Details are sketchy and it is unclear who will produce the series, although Beckham has his own production company, Studio 99, through which he is currently making a Netflix documentary about his life.
Disney + is set to unveil a list of UK orders after Deadline revealed the streamer’s first strip of European originals last month, including mafia series Good mothers.
