LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – Actors Ryan Reynolds and Rob McLaney are turning the Welsh football team’s unexpected purchase of Wrexham into a television series, FX announced on Tuesday.
“Welcome to Wrexham” will report on the efforts of two Hollywood actors, both new to British football, to improve the fortunes of a small club that has never played in the English Premier League.
Reynolds, the star of the superhero comedy “Deadpool” and producer McLaney of the TV series “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia”, bought Wrexham from team fans in February.
The club said the actors invested about $ 2.76 million as part of the takeover deal.
McElhenney tweeted on Tuesday, “We can never be the ‘owners’ of the world’s third oldest club. We can only strive to improve the club for its true and eternal owners: the Wrexham community.”
FX said that the series would follow the intense course of “Rob and Ryan in possession of a football club and the unmistakably connected destinations of a team and a city with two actors who would bring some hope and real change to a community” Is what you need “.
The channel did not say when the documentary series would be shown in the United States or whether it would be available in the United Kingdom.
The actors announced the job in a controversial video on their social media account with the help of a Welsh translator. “There is no way these two can manage a football team. And the wig thinks Wales are in Scotland.”
