Fullscreen’s ‘Keeping Score’ Follows Hope Solo & Other Soccer Stars On Road To Rio


Fullscreen Media has set its first original docuseries. Keeping Score follows three of the world’s best female athletes — U.S. soccer players Hope Solo, Megan Rapinoe and Crystal Dunn — off the field and on the road to the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. Launching August 3, the series will be available exclusively on the Fullscreen’s SVOD platforms.

Solo wanted to make a unique vehicle for these powerful women to tell their story. Fullscreen gave them license to turn the cameras on themselves, capturing life at home and their unique journey to Rio. Keeping Score offers an extraordinary look at the lives of these professional athletes as never seen before through the use of self-shot footage. Viewers learn about their upbringings, relationships and personal sacrifices — and their quest for equal pay. The women share how they’ve worked to achieve their dreams and their efforts against the challenging double standards they face as they advance professionally.

“Through their individual stories, we’re following these women as they make history — not only as a team on the soccer pitch but in their fight for equal pay,” said Ashley Kaplan, Fullscreen’s head of production. “Viewers will witness their struggles and motivations firsthand at a time where the future of women’s soccer could change forever.”
