David Beckham Inks $20 Million Deal With Disney+ For a Reality Show; More Details Revealed
David Beckham will soon add one more skill to his resumé besides being an athlete, a businessman, and a model.
The 45-year-year British footballer has reportedly signed a seven-figure deal with digital streaming platform Disney+.
According to The Sun, David Beckham was approached by the company to make a new TV series about underprivileged young football players.
And what has the dad-of-four thought of this upcoming project?
An insider revealed to the outlet, "He was very taken with the idea because it reflects his own experiences growing up."
"Plus, he's still so committed to young talent in the game."
David Beckham, whose wife is Victoria Beckham, grew up in London during a challenging time. The upcoming series will reveal the importance of the sport in giving young people a goal and a sense of community.
The source shared that Beckham's role will be a mentor for the group, and because of his past experiences of coming from nothing to becoming the best football player in the world, he is the perfect person for the project.
"He'll be seen helping to inspire and encourage these youngsters on their journeys," they added.
According to The Mirror, casting will start this week in East London after filming on the previously delayed show.
