CSI executive producer Danny Cannon directs the story of a young Mexican-American soccer player (Kuno Becker) who moves to England to play for Newcastle United. Thanks to cooperation from FIFA (soccer, er, football’s governing body), expect some seriously realistic action, shot during actual games with added close-ups of the rigorously trained cast (like Alessandro Nivola). ”It’s hard to communicate with 22 people at a distance,” says Cannon. ”You end up yelling a lot. It’s like I directed this from the terraces.” Note to Americans: He means bleachers.
