It’s time for sports documentaries!

After the success of the Formula 1 Drive to Survive, it is understandable that several sports organisations are now seeking their own documentary to improve their popularity around the world. And from the same producers, this Friday 13th will be the launch on Netflix of Break Point, Part 1, three days before the start of the 2023 Grand Slam season at the Australian Open.

🎾 Break Point season’s episodes will be broadcast in two parts; the first five episodes — focusing on Melbourne Park, Indian Wells, Madrid and Roland Garros — will be available this month. The season’s other five installments — which look at Wimbledon, Eastbourne, Queens Club, the U.S. Open, WTA Finals and ATP Finals — arrive in June.

The planned documentary Point Break will present a magnified picture of tennis with some of the top players participating in the action of the 2022 season. According to the official Netflix synopsis, the series will explore the agonising battle that athletes face when competing in the professional sphere. It will do so by getting close to the players throughout the 2022 season. The players’ private moments, happy triumphs, and successful celebrations with their crews will be shown to viewers behind the scenes.

⛳ Additionally, on 15th February, it will be the release of Full Swing, the eight-episode series will showcase PGA players through their wins and losses, promising a behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to compete at the highest levels in men’s pro golf, per Netflix’s description.

The series provides an inside look at the PGA’s most significant events for the first time ever, including the 150th Open Championship last year at St. Andrews in Scotland, The Players, The Masters Tournament, PGA Championship, the U.S. Open and the FedExCup Playoffs.

“Full Swing” was produced in partnership with the PGA Tour by Vox Media Studios and Box to Box Films, the company behind Netflix’s “Formula 1: Drive to Survive.”

⭐ The last season of the Formula 1 documentary “Drive to Survive,” released in March 2022, drew its largest audience so far and made the Netflix top-10 TV list in more than 50 countries. It is widely credited with helping grow the interest in Formula One, and now more sports organisations want to replicate that success.
