Produced by American television network FX, which is owned by Disney, the documentary series will chart the progress of the soccer team as well as the learning curve experienced by the club's new owners.

The filmmakers have not revealed many specifics about what to expect, but, we do know that the co-owners have planned to be very hands-on with the project, as they immerse themselves in the community of Wrexham, in the north of Wales.

The pair regularly post content on social media regarding Wrexham, including video footage and photos from matches they have attended, so we expect to see that incorporated into the series.
