Netflix is teaming with Uninterrupted, the athlete empowerment brand that’s part of LeBron James and Maverick Carter’s SpringHill Company, for the docuseries Neymar: The Perfect Chaos.

The three-part series profiles soccer star Neymar da Silva Santos Júnior, one of the most famous and highest-paid athletes in history. The docuseries traces his rise to fame at Santos, his glory days at FC Barcelona, and the ups and downs of his experiences with the Brazilian National team as well as Paris Saint-Germain. The series also lifts the veil behind the star’s marketing machine, which his father runs with a tight grip.

Neymar: The Perfect Chaos also features interviews with icons of the sport like David Beckham, Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappé among others as they weigh in on Neymar’s place in sports history.

The series, which premieres on Netflix on January 25, was produced in association with Uninterrupted and is a Campfire Studios, Relevent Sports and MakeMake Entertainment production, in collaboration with Pitch Productions.

Neymar: The Perfect Chaos is directed by David Charles Rodrigues and produced by Rodrigues, Cecilia Salguero, Terry Leonard, Jennifer Sofio Hall and Kent Kubena. Executive producers are LeBron James, Maverick Carter, Devin Johnson, Daniel Sillman, Jamal Henderson, Philip Byron, Ross M. Dinerstein, Ross Girard and Angus Wall, with co-executive producers Matt Rissmiller and Will Znidaric and co-producers David Tomlin and Michael Steiner.
