Peter Crouch will be seen trying to revive an ailing football club in a new reality series.
Provisionally titled Save Our Beautiful Game, the eight-part series will stream on discovery+ UK.
It will follow football legend Peter Crouch as he returns to his roots to try to reverse the fortunes of a lucky non-league community focussed football club.
Peter will be seen using his Premier League knowledge, experience and charm as he sets out a mission to turn the club around, joining the Board of Directors for the 2021/22 season.
The show hopes to highlight how grassroots clubs are the training grounds of future stars as newly qualified coach Peter takes on the challenge of elevating the team.

The series takes us through an important narrative of community-loved grassroots sports interwoven with heart-lifting scenes of Peter’s homecoming to support local teams.
