Fox Sports And Kayo Set To Broadcast Super Netball Documentary

F
ox Sports and Kayo will air six episodes of a new documentary series on Super Netball’s 2020 Queensland hub, titled Everything Is Possible: Inside Season 2020.

The series will give an insight into how players, coaches and officials delivered the Super Netball season in 2020 during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The documentary was filmed over several months, with producer Andrew Jansen going behind-the-scenes with club’s under the pressure of COVID-19 regulations, while also challenging preconceptions surrounding women’s sport.

Netball Australia executive general manager of media, Spencer Retallack, said this feature will provide a fresh take on sport.

“What we saw on court during season 2020 was a group of fierce, proud athletes who were determined to showcase their code when the rest of the sporting world was in forced hibernation,” Retallack said.

“What this documentary series reveals is the enormous challenge – both emotional and logistical – that allowed them to do that.

“Thanks to the understanding and co-operation of clubs, players, coaches and officials we now have a unique insight into the world’s best elite netball competition during the hardest of times.

“Partnering with Fox Sports and Kayo provides us with the ability to attract a new audience which will ensure the 2021 season will be the most successful to date but also build a platform for growth in the years to come.

“We’re sure our current and loyal fan base will love the access to the behind-the-scenes stories of 2020,” he said.

Episodes one and two will be released on April 12, episodes three and four will appear on April 20 and the last two episodes will feature on April 27.
