Thomas Müller (working title) takes a behind-the-scenes look at public figure Thomas Müller, from his humble beginnings in rural Bavaria and his start at FC Bayern Munich at just 10 years old to his Bundesliga breakthrough and rise to international stardom, becoming Germany’s most decorated football player. In addition to the highlights and lows of his professional career, viewers will also experience the challenges Thomas Muller faces on a daily basis to remain a selfless teammate, loyal friend and responsible husband despite the attention and pressure surrounding him.
Thomas Müller on the documentary: “I am looking forward to the exciting project of a documentary about me! The way from the village square in Paehl via FC Bayern Munich to the World Cup title has been a fairy tale for me so far. But in the life of every athlete there are moments you don’t want to relive. And maybe these stories are even more memorable for the audience. What I will experience in the next few months remains to be seen. But I’m sure the film will give viewers new and interesting insights into my life not only as a football player, but also as a person off the field.”
“Thomas Muller is an incomparable football player, an absolute legend at FC Bayern and in the national team, who not only stands out on the pitch with his special playfulness, but also always inspires enthusiasm off the pitch with his humor and his open and honest manner. Prime members can look forward to a first-class documentary with absolute entertainment value,” says Philip Pratt, Head of German Originals Prime Video Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
“NEO Studios is thrilled to be producing this definitive documentary about one of Germany’s greatest footballers and an icon of international sport,” added Anouk Mertens’s, CEO of Neo Studios. ” The film will dive into Thomas’s great career with the club of his heart, FC Bayern Munich, while also planning to shine one last time with the German national team.”
