Peter Crouch and Abbey Clancy have landed a new reality show.
'Save Our Beautiful Game' will see the former pro footballer and his wife attempt to save a struggling football club after the devastating effects the coronavirus pandemic has had on the sport.
A source told The Sun newspaper's Bizarre TV column: “Peter jumped at the chance to get on board with this series and can’t wait for everyone to see it."
The fly-on-the-wall documentary will follow Peter as he uses "his skills as a newly qualified coach" to help a non-league team improve their game, and think of innovative ways to bring fans back to the pitch.
Abbey, 35, will also be on hand to offer advice and help Peter, 40, think of a plan.
The source added: “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.”
The eight-part series will air on Discovery later this year with production company Workerbee.
Simon Downing, Discovery’s Head Of Content, Factual and Sport, 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.”
