Prime Video cues up Ronnie O’Sullivan snooker doc from Beckham’s Studio 99

Ronnie O’Sullivan: The Edge Of Everything

Amazon Prime Video is preparing to launch a new feature-length documentary following snooker star Ronnie Sullivan.

Ronnie O’Sullivan: The Edge Of Everything is from David Beckham’s label Studio 99 and starts tracking the player from 2021, when he was set to quit the sport.

It follows O’Sullivan’s personal life and how a run in the World Championship susbequently pulled him back into snooker.

The doc is from filmmaker Sam Blair (Make Us Dream) and explores O’Sullivan’s genius as well as the battles with his inner demons, with never-before-seen archive family footage featuring alongside interviews with the player and his family.

It will debut in a one-night-live premiere screening on Tuesday 21 November, featuring a Q&A with O’Sullivan and Beckham that will be streamed live to select cinemas across the UK.

The documentary will then become available on Prime Video in the UK & Ireland from 23 November, opening in cinemas from 24 November.

O’Sullivan said: “My highs and lows have been well-documented by the media but I felt like now was the right time to do something more definitive – something that I can look back and reflect on as I contemplate retirement.

“Going into my seventh World Championship I wasn’t sure I had it in me but allowing the cameras in ended up driving me on in many ways and gave me a different perspective.”

Blair added: “Throughout the making of this film, Ronnie allowed his charisma, complexities and contradictions appear naturally – he was profoundly himself, raw and unfiltered, and that made the often awkward and complicated situation of making a film simple for me.”

Prime Video has put sports programming at the centre of its offeringin the UK, with shows ranging from the All Or Nothing franchise, That Peter Crouch Film, a special on footballer Wayne Rooney, Ben Stokes: Phoenix from the Ashes and Sir Alex Ferguson: Never Give In.
