Deadline understands that the company is making Bad Sport (w/t), which will look at a variety of scandalous sporting incidents around the world.
It comes after the company, which produced breakout doc feature Three Identical Strangers, launched its latest Netflix series Fear City: New York vs The Mafia on the streaming service earlier this month.
Three Identical Strangers director Tim Wardle, who joined the company in 2012 as Head of Development, is one of the exec producers of Bad Sport, alongside Alex Marengo, who exec produced Netflix series Killer Ratings, and Raw’s U.S. creative director Adam Hawkins.
Directors on the series include Luke Sewell, who directed BBC series Generation Gifted, and Alex Kiehl, who developed and directed Channel 4’s SAS: Who Dares Wins.
One of the stories featured in the series includes the tale of Calciopoli, Italy’s largest football scandal, which saw domestic giants Juventus relegated from Serie A in 2006 due to match fixing allegations.
British production company Raw Television, which was founded by Dimitri Doganis in 2001, has been increasingly growing its U.S. division in recent years. Bad Sport is an example of a cross Atlantic commission with Netflix execs including U.S.-based Gabe Spitzer, the company’s director of non-fiction originals, and Jonny Taylor, who is part of Kate Townsend’s original documentaries commissioning team in London, overseeing the project.
The company has also been making a documentary about Peter Sutcliffe, otherwise known as the Yorkshire Ripper, who is serving 20 life sentences for murdering 13 women, for the streamer.
