Sports Docuseries ‘Planet Sport’ Coming from Asylum & Pilgrim Studios

Asylum Entertainment and Pilgrim Studios are teaming to produce sports docuseries “Planet Sport.”

Steve Michaels and Jonathan Koch of Asylum and Craig Piligian’s Pilgrim Studios are bringing on the Emmy-winning David Michaels to produce the project that explores sports on a global scale, examining how they shape and reflect cultures, societies, identities and communities throughout the world.

Each installment of the event series will utilize archival and modern-day footage, plus testimonials from famed athletes, to cover global events and competitions, while focusing on one sporting theme — glory, fear, rivalry, endurance and teamwork.

“‘Planet Sport’ promises to bring to life sports in a way that audiences around the world have never experienced,” said Michaels, president of Asylum. “Using technology, visual arts and high-level storytelling, we are creating the definitive and all-encompassing sports series.”

Piligian commented, “This series will do for sports what series like ‘Planet Earth’ did for nature — a sweeping, moving, and beautiful depiction of something that unites us all because it’s so integral to the human experience.”

Michaels, Koch and Piligian will serve as exec producers, along with Thomas Tull, CEO of Legendary Entertainment, which houses Asylum.
