The upcoming documentary series will hit the field later this month.
Netflix has released a trailer for its latest original show. 'Last Chance U' will offer a behind-the-scenes look at the world of college football.
The six-part series follows a group of young men training to become the future stars of the NFL. The football players are the latest recruits to East Mississippi Community College (EMCC), an undefeated team with 3 consecutive National Championships under their belt. The EMCC Lions have become a phenomenon in junior college sports, attracting elite athletes, some of whom have been held back by poor academic performance or behavioral issues. Under Coach Buddy Stephens, EMCC has become one of the most successful but least known athletic programs, graduating more than 20 players per year into football scholarships at four year universities, with nine of his former players currently playing in the NFL.

'Last Chance U' is directed by Greg Whiteley ('Mitt,' 'New York Doll,' 'Resolved'). The series will start streaming exclusively through Netflix on July 29.
Other upcoming Netflix premieres include 'Stranger Things' on July 15, the documentary 'Tony Robbins: I Am Not Your Guru' on July 15, season three of 'BoJack Horseman' on July 22, 'Tallulah' on July 29, 'The Little Prince' on August 5, 'The Get Down' on August 12, 'Project Mc2' season two on August 12, 'XOXO' on August 12, and 'The Crown' on November 4.
