Arsenal is the latest soccer team to feature in Amazon’s ‘All or Nothing’ docuseries
Amazon is reportedly turning back to the UK’s Premier League for the focus of its next All or Nothing sports documentary. Deadline has learned the new series will cover Arsenal as it plays the League’s 2021-2022 season. The documentary deal hasn’t been finalized, according to the site’s sources, but Amazon, Arsenal and production company 72 Films all confirmed the plans.
The Gunners’ documentary will debut on Prime sometime after the season in 2022.
Whether or not it’s an exciting series is unclear. Arsenal is a legendary team, but its current roster hasn’t produced top-tier results. It finished the 2020-2021 season in eighth place and bowed out of the UEFA Europa League (below the Champions League) in the semis. It does have a rising star in the form of midfielder Bukayo Saka, though, and Deadline pointed out that the team finished the Premier League season on a strong note. Arsenal might make for a good comeback story, then.
Amazon has diversified the scope of All or Nothing over the years to include three soccer teams, New Zealand’s All Blacks rugby squad, a range of American football teams and soon a veteran hockey team (the Toronto Maple Leafs). The strategy, however, has remained the same — Amazon is determined to be a go-to source for sports shows and give you a reason to subscribe to Prime Video instead of (or alongside) rivals like Netflix.
