Just as it has a separate news network, FOX has one dedicated to sports. Still, the company has decided to premiere the first season of its Phenoms TV show on its entertainment network. The program is billed as a mini-series and focuses on a discrete event — the run-up to a 2018 soccer championship, so in theory, it ought to be a one time deal. Still, if it does well enough, there’s no reason it can’t be renewed to cover next year’s competition. So, will Phenoms end or be renewed for season two? Stay tuned.
A FOX docu-series from several sports filmmakers, Phenoms covers up-and-coming soccer players. The athletes are vying to represent their respective home countries, in the 2018 FIFA World Cup. Phenoms chronicles their journey and gives fans access to the players’ lives and careers, behind the scenes.
