FOLLOWING the success of his primetime BBC One show, Save Our Summer, Peter Crouch has landed his first ever reality show.
The former Three Lions striker and his wife Abbey Clancy, 35, will star in an eight-part, fly-on-the-wall documentary series on Discovery which will follow Peter as he attempts to change the fortunes of an ailing football club.
The show, which has the working title of Save Our Beautiful Game, will also see Peter, 40, looking into the devastating effect the coronavirus pandemic has had on grassroots football.
A source said: “Peter jumped at the chance to get on board with this series and can’t wait for everyone to see it.
“In the show Peter will be seen using his skills as a newly qualified coach to help a struggling non-league team reach the top.
“As well as using his coaching skills, he will be thinking outside the box in a bid to get fans coming through the doors.
“He’ll also be seen at home with Abbey, who will give her own take on what Peter could do to make it a success.
“It’s a really heart-warming series which will show Peter in a light never before seen by his fans.”
Discovery’s Head Of Content, Factual and Sport, Simon Downing said of the series: “We’re beyond thrilled to welcome Save Our Beautiful Game to discovery+.
“The series takes us through an important narrative of community-loved grassroots sports interwoven with heart-lifting scenes of Peter’s homecoming to support local teams.
“It’s a fantastic story that will undoubtedly resonate with Discovery’s passionate sports fans.”
Rick Murray, Managing Director of production company Workerbee added: “Peter is passionate about supporting grassroots level football and with his knowledge, boundless energy and charisma is throwing himself into the task.
This series will be insightful, entertaining and hopefully a huge force for good for local football clubs and their communities. We are thrilled to be making it.”
The eight-parter will air later this year.
