Facebook is reportedly in discussions with Cristiano Ronaldo for what would be their biggest original series deal to date. According to Variety, the social media giant is planning to produce a reality show about the Real Madrid star and could pay him up to $10 million.
The show would run for 13 episodes and be part of Facebook Watch, the platform’s hub for TV-style content. CAA is reportedly packaging the series, which will be produced by Matador Content and Religion of Sports, a sports-media firm that counts NFL star Tom Brady as one of its founders.
The Portuguese captain is already in business with Facebook, producing a scripted drama series for the social media giant through his newly-launched studio, wiip. The show is about a diverse high-school girls soccer team in upstate New York in the mold of a Friday Night Lights, where the team inspires the community to put aside racial, ethnic, and class differences.
