The Walt Disney Company, together with AFL, today announced a With unprecedented access, the six-part docu-series will deliver a world-first look inside AFLW and the powerhouse movement it has become for women in sport. The series will launch on Disney+ in 2022, ahead of the next season of the NAB AFL Women’s Competition.

Since its commencement in 2017, the women’s competition has been a gamechanger in its short history and the series will give Disney+ audiences an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the evolution of Australia’s number one sporting code and the evolution of professional female sport.


Four clubs will be spotlighted: Adelaide Crows, Collingwood, GWS GIANTS, and Western Bulldogs, with a focus on the playing groups. The behind-the-scenes camera and post-production crew is led predominately by a team of authentic, female storytellers, capturing the action from the AFL Women’s Competition.
