Netflix will broadcast a four-part behind-the-scenes documentary series about Serie A champions Juventus.

Juventus will be the subject of a new behind-the-scenes documentary series for Netflix, the club has announced.

The streaming service has been given exclusive behind-the-scenes access to the Serie A champions, allowing them to film training sessions, tactical meetings and dressing-room team talks.

Four one-hour episodes will be produced and debut on Netflix around the world in early 2018.

"It's a source of pride that Juventus is the first football club to be the subject of a Netflix Original Docuseries," said Federico Palomba, Juve's co-chief revenue officer.

"Collaborations of this kind confirm our passion for innovation and being, in every sense, a sport entertainment brand.

"In this way, we are determined to reach Bianconeri fans across the world and millions of Netflix users, who thanks to this docuseries can get to know Juventus from every angle."

Erik Barmack, VP of international original series at Netflix, added: "Netflix is the home of passionate storytelling, and there are no more passionate fans than those of the Bianconeri. We are excited to have unique, exclusive access to one of the most important squads in the world."

The news comes after reports last month that Manchester City have agreed a deal for a similar series with Netflix rivals Amazon Prime.
