Initially titled Planet Sport, the docs will examine how sport shapes and reflects cultures, societies and communities throughout the world.

Each episode will focus on a universal sporting theme – glory, fear, rivalry, endurance and teamwork.

Legendary Entertainment-owned Asylum and Craig Piligian’s Pilgrim Studios are coproducing the project with an award-winning production team including Steve Michaels, Jonathan Koch and David Michaels. Piligian and Legendary chairman and CEO Thomas Tull will also executive produce.

Piligian said: “This series will do for sports what series like Planet Earth did for nature – a sweeping, moving and beautiful depiction of something that unites us all because it’s so integral to the human experience.”
