The critically acclaimed and award-winning Katie Taylor documentary KATIE will be available to stream on Netflix in Ireland from Monday, 11 March.
KATIE intimately follows champion boxer Katie Taylor as she attempts to rebuild her career following a year of turmoil, which threatened to derail her.
With many writing her off, Taylor decided to start again, and the notoriously private champion agreed to let a small crew document her attempt to rescale the heights.
The Bray-native has won six amateur European championships, five world amateur championships and is an Olympic Gold Medal winner from the London 2012 Olympic Games.
She turned professional after a disastrous campaign at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, which saw her crash out in the first round despite being favourite to win. The film unravels the deeply personal reasons behind the career low and shows the champions grit and determination to start over as a professional.
Katie won her first world title within a year and became the first woman in history to headline her own Sky Sports show.
The feature documentary is produced by Ross Whitaker and Aideen O’Sullivan (When Ali Came To Ireland) for True Films and Venom with Andrew Freedman (His & Hers, Mom and Me) as Executive Producer with funding from Screen Ireland, RTÉ, the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland and Wildcard Distribution.
It’s not often we get to see the ‘ordinary’ side of any athlete, never mind an individual who is as private and reluctant to engage with scandal as Taylor – but with KATIE, the rawness is palpable and you truly feel that you're getting a fly-on-the-wall view of one of Ireland's best at work.
