Netflix to Produce La Liga Docuseries for 2023-24 Season

It will contain scenes from the 2023-24 season, with the show already in the pre-production phase. Football fans can anticipate a premiere date toward the end of 2024.

Earlier this year, Break Point made its small-screen debut chronicling the lives of the biggest faces in tennis. And in February, Full Swing — a golf docuseries with the same format that premiered with eight episodes — was also released. Season 5 of Drive to Survive drops on Netflix this Friday.
