Prime Video to air NHL docuseries through Box to Box tie-up

The Amazon Prime Video streaming service has unveiled a partnership with Box to Box Films and NHL Productions (the content production wing of the North American ice hockey league) through which a docuseries around some of the league’s best teams and players is being created.

The series, as yet untitled, will air in the last few months of 2024, worldwide (having filmed during the 2023-24 season), and comes as an addition in Canada to Prime Video’s agreement for live coverage of the 32-team league (featuring seven Canadian sides) in 2024-25 and 2025-26. Through that tie-up, Monday night NHL games will be covered in that market exclusively by Prime Video.

Box to Box Films, meanwhile, is renowned for producing behind-the-scenes sports documentaries. Its roster of productions airing on Netflix, for example, includes Formula 1: Drive to Survive (motor racing), Tour de France: Unchained (cycling), Break Point (tennis), and Six Nations: Full Contact (rugby union). It has also produced feature-length sports-centric films, such as Diego Maradona, and Senna.

The collaboration marks the fourth original program Prime Video has partnered with NHL Productions for, after an edition of the All or Nothing documentary series followed the Toronto Maple Leafs through 2020-21, followed by two other documentaries (Chosen One: Alexandre Daigle, and Saving Sakic) this season.

The NHL series is being executive-produced by James Gay-Rees and Paul Martin (Box to Box Films’ co-founders), Steve Mayer and Ross Bernard for NHL Productions, and Daniel Amigone.

The series will “focus on the NHL’s biggest teams and most compelling characters, all at different stages of their careers, as they embark throughout the season on the ultimate pursuit of glory.” Sportcal
