UK broadcaster BBC One has commissioned a three-part documentary series following former Manchester United footballers as they attempt to save an ailing club.
Salford Dreams United (WT) will see Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, Nicky Butt, Gary Neville and Phil Neville – all members of the famed ‘Class of ‘92’ Man Utd team that dominated English football in the 1990s – as they take on Salford City FC, a semi-professional neighbourhood team that draws crowds of just 150.
This comes after the former players players appeared in ITV doc Class of ’92 last year.
Karl Warner’s Sony Pictures Television-backed prodco, Electric Ray, will produce Salford Dreams United. Warner will executive produce with Electric Ray co-managing director Meredith Chambers and the BBC’s Maxine Watson.
“It’s a real coup to give BBC One viewers such extraordinary access through this new documentary series that will follow the story of these famous ex-Manchester United players and football heroes,” said BBC One controller Charlotte Moore.
