Apple has announced an upcoming two-part Boris Becker documentary from Oscar-winning director Alex Gibney and Oscar-winning producer John Battsek.

The untitled series aims to explore every aspect of the man who became a tennis sensation after winning The Wimbledon Championships at the age of just 17, going on to win 49 career titles including six Grand Slams and an Olympic gold medal, as well as his high profile, sometimes tumultuous personal life.

The Oscar-winning filmmakers have had special access to Becker for more than three years, until late April 2022, when he was sentenced to two-and-a-half years in prison for hiding assets and loans to avoid paying his debts. The series features a series of personal interviews with Becker, including an exclusive conversation with the champion the week of his sentencing, alongside members of his immediate family and tennis stars including John McEnroe, Bjorn Borg, Novak Djokovic, Mats Wilander and Michael Stich.

The series is a co-production between Battsek's Ventureland and Gibney's Jigsaw Productions, from Lorton Entertainment whose projects also include Asif Kapadia's BAFTA Award-nominated "Diego Maradona" and Matt Smith's recent documentary "Rooney," on English football great, Wayne Rooney.
