Netflix has renewed its two newest sports docu-series, Full Swing and Break Point. Filming is underway now to capture the 2023 seasons.
“These shows quickly appealed to core fans of golf and tennis, and also recruited brand new fans from all around the world,” said Brandon Riegg, Vice President, Unscripted and Documentary Series, Netflix. “Like so much of our growing sports slate, the compelling characters, competitive stakes, and vibrant storytelling reveal sides of the game you’ve never seen before, and we’re excited to follow the unpredictable turns of the year ahead.”
Golf series Full Swing premiered on February 15th, and landed on Netflix’s weekly global Top 10 English TV list. The series will continue to be executive produced by Chad Mumm and Mark W. Olsen of Vox Media Studios; and Paul Martin, James Gay-Rees and Warren Smith of Box to Box Films.
Full Swing follows a diverse group of professional golfers on and off the course, across a season of competition. The golfers endure a high-stakes schedule week in and week out, including exclusive behind-the-scenes access to the PGA Tour. The documentary gives fans a chance to get to know the players through their wins and losses and witness what it takes to compete – and succeed – at the highest level in the game
Part 1 of tennis series Break Point premiered on January 13th with Part 2 (episodes 6-10) to follow in June. Executive producers Martin and Gay-Rees from Box to Box Films will continue to helm the show.
Break Point follows a select group of top tennis players on and off the court as they compete in some of the biggest events in tennis with hopes of emerging as champion and even bigger dreams of becoming world number one. As some of the greatest players reach the twilight of their careers, there is room for a new generation of players to claim the spotlight. Break Point gets up close and personal with these top players on the tennis circuit through an entire year traveling across the globe for all four Grand Slams and the ATP tour and Hologic WTA tour. From physical injuries and emotional heartbreak, to triumphant victories, to personal moments off the court, viewers get a behind the scenes look at the pressure-tested lives of these pro tennis players.
