Facebook has launched a documentary series on the life of Australian cricketer Ellyse Perry. Perry thus becomes the first Australian athlete to launch a content series with Facebook.
Ellyse Perry is one of the most prolific all-rounders of women’s cricket who has played over 100 ODIs and T20Is each. She is also the quickest to reach the double of 3000+ runs and 150+ wickets in ODIs. Perry, who is a known cricketing figure and a role model to many young girls in Australia, has partnered with Facebook for a 7 episodic documentary based on her life which will be exclusively available on Facebook Watch.
The documentary will feature real-life behind-the-scenes videos of Perry and will give the fans insight into her cricketing career. The videos will be exclusively streamed on Facebook and its sister application Instagram on ‘IGTV’.
Titled as ‘INSIGHT’, the series will give the fans a brilliant opportunity to know Perry better. Over 80 hours of raw footage has been contributed to Facebook which has been compressed to make the 7 episodes. The first episode of the series has already premiered today on Perry’s official Facebook and Instagram handles.
The first episode is titled ‘Perspective’ and it throws light on Perry’s initial journey of cricket. At the age of 16, she got her maiden call up while she was still at school. The episode shows what led her to write the book which is also titled ‘Perspective’.
Ellyse Perry is a name that has only grown over the years in cricketing circles. The current number one all-rounder in women’s game, she is easily head and shoulders above the rest as she continues to display amazing cricketing abilities and never fails to amaze us with her heroics both with the bat and the ball.
