Netflix F1 Drive to Survive team taking on golf and tennis with new shows

Netflix and Box to Box Films are expanding from Formula One racing to following pro golf and tennis stars.


Netflix has brought a horde of new fans to Formula One racing with its Formula 1: Drive to Survive docuseries. Now the streaming service is taking on professional golf and tennis, working with the producers behind Drive to Survive on two new shows announced this week.

The Netflix pro tennis series will follow a year in the life of the world’s biggest tennis stars as they travel the globe throughout 2022 to compete in the four Grand Slam tournaments: the Australian Open, French Open, US Open and Wimbledon. Filming has already begun at the Australian Open, which is about to begin in Melbourne.

Netflix said Friday that the tennis series will also be “the first sports program of its kind to provide an equal platform to the men’s and women’s competitors of the sport.”

For the golf series, Netflix will follow pro golf players through the Masters Tournament, PGA Championship, US Open Championship and the Open, as well as the Players championship and the FedExCup.

“With unprecedented access inside the ropes and behind the scenes, the series will capture the intensity of training, travel, victory, and defeat through the lens of a diverse group of players and their support teams,” Netflix said.

“Even the most devoted golf fans have never seen the sport quite like this,” added Brandon Riegg, Netflix VP of unscripted and documentary series.
