Despite previous rumours suggesting the docuseries would be similar to a fly-on-the-wall, “The Kardashians”-style doc, THR insisted that isn’t the case.
Beckham started playing soccer for Manchester United back in 1992 at just 17.
He is now the president and co-owner of Inter Miami CF and co-owner of Salford City soccer clubs, among numerous other projects.
Beckham and his wife Victoria recently celebrated their 23rd wedding anniversary. The pair share kids Brooklyn, 23, Romeo, 19, Cruz, 17, and Harper, 11.
