About Messi’s Docuseries
The upcoming program will delve deep into Lionel Messi’s illustrious career, featuring interviews with teammates, coaches, opponents, fans, and media figures. It will chronicle his journey with the Argentina national team, from his debut as an 18-year-old to his crowning achievement of winning the World Cup, which will serve as a pivotal moment in the storytelling.
During his first appearance for Argentina against Hungary in a friendly match in 2005, Messi received a red card at just 18 years old. Undeterred, he continued on his path until a sudden retirement in 2016, only to come back and clinch the coveted trophy in Qatar.
Approaching his 20th year in international football, Messi’s extraordinary career has shattered numerous records. He stands as one of only three World Cup-winning captains and holds the records for the most matches played (174) and goals scored (102) in the Argentina men’s team.
Having participated in five World Cups for the Albiceleste, Messi has consistently been the guiding light for the Argentinean team. Following the disappointment of losing the 2016 Copa America Final to Chile, Messi initially announced his international retirement but ultimately reversed his decision.
Produced by Smuggler Entertainment for Apple, the project is led by Emmy winner Tim Pastore as the executive producer. It promises an intimate and comprehensive exploration of Lionel Messi’s remarkable journey on the global stage.
