It is aimed at children and young adolescent audiences. It will feature original music from Sony Music Entertainment artists and composers

Messi is widely regarded as one of the best soccer players to ever grace the pitch and Argentina’s win in the final of the 2022

World Cup against France cemented that further, scoring two goals and winning man of the match.

He broke the record for the most appearance in the World Cup with 26 matches played and has scored 98 goals in 172 appearances for his country

Since 2021, Messi has played for Paris Saint-Germain, where he has 18 goals in 46 appearances, 

 and he has also won a record seven Ballon d’Ors, the award for the best player in the world.

The series will be produced in English, Spanish, and several other languages. Sony Music’s Premium Content Division

which is producing in partnership with Leo Messi Management, will oversee the development and distribution of the series. No network or streamer is currently attached.
