Facebook Plans Cristiano Ronaldo Reality Series

Facebook is in talks for what might be their biggest original series to date – a reality doco series about global soccer legend and Real Madrid player Cristiano Ronaldo.

Matador Content and Religion of Sports will produce the thirteen episode series for Facebook Watch and the Portuguese footballer could net a paycheck of around $10 million for the effort.

Ronaldo is the most popular athlete on Facebook with more than 120 million followers and is producing a scripted drama series for the streamer about a high-school girls soccer team in upstate New York that inspires the local community to transcend racial, ethnic and class differences dividing it.
