Apple TV+ revealed the official trailer for Boom! Boom! The World vs. Boris Becker, the docuseries exploring every aspect of the man who became a tennis sensation after winning The Wimbledon Championships at the age of just 17, going on to win 49 career titles, including six Grand Slams and an Olympic gold medal, as well as his high-profile, sometimes tumultuous personal life.
The new two-part documentary event from Oscar-winning director Alex Gibney (Taxi to the Dark Side, Enron, The Armstrong Lie, Going Clear) and Oscar-winning producer John Battsek (One Day in September, Searching for Sugar Man, The Rescue, The Deepest Breath) will premiere globally on April 7, 2023 on Apple TV+.
The filmmakers had special access to Becker for more than three years, until late April 2022, when he was sentenced to two-and-a-half years in prison for hiding assets and loans to avoid paying his debts. Boom! Boom! The World vs. Boris Becker features a series of personal interviews with Becker, including an exclusive conversation with the champion the week of his sentencing, alongside members of his immediate family and tennis stars, including John McEnroe, Bjorn Borg, Novak Djokovic, Mats Wilander and Michael Stich.
