Netflix is continuing its success with original documentaries with a plan to tell the factual story of the two-time heavyweight champion boxer, Tyson Fury.
A multimillionaire descended from a 200-year line of bare-knuckle fighters, Fury is an extraordinary icon in the sport of boxing who has fought adversity and mental health issues to reach the very top of his game. Most recently, Fury fought and beat Dillian Whyte on April 23rd 2022, subsequently announcing his retirement a few months later on August 12th, relinquishing his ring title.
Announced at the Edinburgh TV Festival on August 24th, At Home with the Furys will be a multipart documentary series that follows the boxer and his family as he retires and takes on a dedicated life as a husband and father to six children, Venezuela, Prince John, Prince Tyson, Prince Adonis, Valencia and Athena.
A fly-on-the-wall documentary, the programme will take audiences into his mansion in Morecambe, England, and will surely illustrate a much different side of the world champion as he takes on his challenging role as a father.
Netflix has always found great joy in documentary series, with modern times being no different, finding success with Trainwreck: Woodstock ’99 and The Most Hated Man on the Internet, among others.
Whilst very different from the forthcoming Tyson Fury series, take a look at the trailer for Trainwreck: Woodstock ’99, below.
