NBC’s new documentary series focusing on the exploits of Crystal Palace FC from behind the scenes is set to get underway in the US this evening, with a sneak preview of what we can expect attached on the link below.
Narrated throughout by Gary Lineker, the episodes will be aired in chronological order, taking a look behind the curtain at exactly how things operate in the top flight, through the eyes of those at the centre of our football club.
Revolving heavily around eight characters within the current set-up, two of which will be players, the TV crew are looking to present an authentic, warts and all portrayal of a professional sporting organisation, along roughly similar guidelines to the model followed by HBO in the hugely popular NFL show “Hard Knocks”.
This clip, with insight from Alan Pardew into the fiercely tribal characteristics that make following an English football club unique in the global sporting landscape will certainly whet your appetite for the four-part series that is set to come our way over the next month.
Whilst we are no different from plenty of other clubs across the country, the fact that NBC have chosen to shine a light on us is certainly a pleasant surprise. If it’s anything like as good as the trailer suggests, it will be a series that is treasured by Palace fans for years to come.
