The DFB announced a partnership with Warner Bros Entertainment to produce a six-part documentary series that will highlight the German women’s national team and shine a spotlight on the women’s game overall (per Forbes):

Due to be released in 2022 or 2023, the filmmakers will follow the team, twice Women’s World Cup champions, eight-time European Champions and Olympic Gold Medalists in 2016, until at least the end of the finals of next summer’s Women’s Euros in England, with a decision on where the series will end to be made based on the team’s progress at the championships.

The film crew first visited the team in February 2021 to build up a trust with the players before they began shooting during the next international break in April. Warner Bros insist “there’s no script, no rehearsals and no fake stories – the main point of the series is to tell the authentic story of the protagonists.”

The squad seems excited for the project.

“It’s a brilliant project. We were super-excited when we found out what the team had planned. We all have our own stories, and it came together right from the start as we immediately felt part of the film crew,” said goalkeeper Merle Frohms.
