Developed and created by Zoomsport, both series will be distributed internationally by Rooftop Film & TV.

The Agent is a six-part sport and reality series where viewers get a window into the life of one of football’s most well-connected agents, Pere Guardiola brother of the famous manager. With exclusive behind the scenes access to meetings with players, contract negotiations and the daily running of a topflight football club.

In Ronaldo, el presidente full access is given to follow Ronaldo Luis Nazario de Lima as he goes about his business as the new owner of Spanish football club Valladolid. With the participation of Ronaldinho, Roberto Carlos, Zinedine Zidane and other stars, the series also looks back on Ronaldo’s own career, whether it’s from his home in Ibiza or with his family in Brazil. It looks at what makes him a good entrepreneur, and does it require the same set of skills he used to become one of the best players in soccer history.

“After the worldwide success of the Barca documentary Take the Ball, Pass the Ball, these two projects are the direct result of our logical partnership expansion with Zoomsport,” said Rooftop Content Group co-founder and managing partner Jordi Van Even.

“Adding renowned TV executive Erik Barmack and his new company Wild Sheep Content to the equation has upped the creative and commercial level of the shows. We wanted to go for content that’s attractive for sports lovers and beyond, reaching not only a large niche but also the average viewer. I think the fly on the wall approach in both series will appeal to many. A very promising third co-production is already under discussion.”
