Alphonso Davies, the 15-year-old Canadian national youth national team member, has announced a partnership with, you guessed it, a new television series.
“In this project we look forward to providing a platform for unique and engaging content that highlights various perspectives of people around the world,” Davies said in a statement. “I hope to inspire people worldwide to think globally and act locally.”
Canadian Journalist Ed McEwen, who has written extensively about Davies, will produce the series, which he describes as a, “fully engaging documentary look into Alphonso’s life and his involvement in the young (he’s 15) national team.”
This isn’t Davies’ first foray into the entertainment world, either: He has a film production company, and has been featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated as well as The New York Times Magazine.
The show is part of the series The NFT, which was founded by Chukwudi Okobi and a trio of Nigerian journalists and aims to bring awareness to various perspectives from around the world. Davies appeared in the first NFT episode alongside some well-known faces, including the Pope and Bill Gates.
