Borussia Dortmund scores new documentary deal with Amazon Prime

German Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund is set to be the focus of a new behind-the-scenes Amazon documentary series, set to be released in August, which will track the club’s 2018/19 highs and lows.

The four-part series will showcase the team’s domestic and European efforts in a campaign where they ultimately finished second to Bayern Munich, while also being knocked out of the UEFA Champions League by English side Tottenham Hotspur.

Dortmund captain Marco Reus added: “Pause and his team very quickly felt like part of our squad as we celebrated victories and processed defeats together.

“Although ultimately we just missed out on our dream of winning the German championship, I’m still very much looking forward to the finished documentary.”

The docu-series, set to be developed by German director Aljoscha Pause, will be made available across 200 different countries via the Amazon Prime Video platform.

Carsten Cramer, Dortmund’s managing director, said: “Pause has once again demonstrated his incredible filmmaking talent and has succeeded not only in discreetly producing a fascinating insight into the everyday goings on at a football club, but also in showing BVB how it really is.”

Viewers will be able to gain insight into the team’s dynamics via interviews with key figures within the team, including manager Lucien Favre, as well as chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke. As well as this, there will be exclusive insight into the players’ private lives as well as dressing room and training centre footage.
