The production company behind Netflix and its popular Formula 1 ‘Drive to Survive’ series will document this season’s ATP and WTA Tour, as well as all four Grand Slam tournaments, the online streaming platform said in a statement on Friday.
Filming at the Australian Open is already underway, but the release date and title for the documentary are yet to be confirmed, the statement said.
Netflix said, “This series will be the first sports program of its kind to provide an equal platform for male and female competitors of the sport, who share the same stage throughout the year.”
Earlier this week, Netflix announced that they would be joining the PGA Tour and major golf championships to create a series of documentaries for the 2022 season.
Colin Morikawa, Brooks Koepka, Dustin Johnson, Jordan Spieth and Sergio Garcia are among the many high-profile golfers who have committed to participating in the documentary.
Both series are being produced by Box to Box Films, whose ‘Drive to Survive’ series is credited with increasing the popularity of Formula 1 worldwide.
