Jack Ross’ first season as Sunderland manager is to be part of a new Netflix docu-series.
The Scottish gaffer has been charge of the Black Cats since the summer, moving from St Mirren to the Stadium of Light as replacement for Chris Coleman.
With Sunderland suffering relegation to English League One last season, it will be very interesting to see how Ross fares with the club.
The aim will be to get the immediate promotion back to the Championship and then kick on to challenge for a place in the Premier League from there.
But Ross will be confident of doing that after the impressive start to his managerial career with Alloa and Sunderland.
Scottish fans will be particularly interested in how Ross does – and as well as tuning into Sunderland’s results this season, they’ll be able to watch what’s happened behind the scenes courtesy of a new docu-series set to be shown on Netflix.
Sunderland ‘Till I Die is slated for a December 14th release according to reports. The eight-part series follows the team through their awful last season, which ended in relegation to League.
Other reports say that Netflix are already filming the second season too – and that’s where Ross will come into things.
You’d expect the second season to be released around the same time next year although nothing has been confirmed.
