Netflix has dropped the first trailer for Last Chance U, a six-part docuseries that takes “a gut-wrenching behind-the-scenes look at the world of college football.”
Inspired by the GQ article of the same name, Last Chance U follows the stories of elite athletes in tough life circumstances who struggle to find their redemption on a champion community college football team and hopefully realize their dreams of competing at the next level.
Based at East Mississippi Community College (EMCC), Last Chance U takes us on a journey to understand the real men of the gridiron at one of the most successful, but least known athletic programs. Each player has incredible talent and drive to be the best, but each face their own unique struggles both on and off the field. As their season takes an unexpected turn, the methods of this unconventional team are deeply called into question. With much to lose, they are constantly reminded of the stakes.
All episodes debut globally on Netflix Friday, July 29.
