David Beckham Scores on the Cover of 'Queue' Issue 16


Netflix, Inc.

May 1 - He’s an athlete, an entrepreneur, and an icon — and he’s on the cover of Queue Issue 16.

In this new issue, the one and only David Beckham, photographed for Queue by Collier Schorr, reveals how and why he decided to offer audiences a candid look at his life on and off the pitch in BECKHAM, the buzzy four-part docuseries from director Fisher Stevens (Before the Flood, The Lincoln Project). Intimate and insightful, BECKHAM traces the highs and lows of the football phenom’s career and personal life, from his working-class childhood practicing under the direction of his no-nonsense father to his Manchester United F.C. debut, making for a compelling examination of one of pop culture’s most internationally recognizable stars.

“Going through the whole process of it was like an emotional rollercoaster,” Beckham tells Queue. “Looking at the good, the bad, the things that I’ve done over my career and my life, and some things that I’d never even seen before was just unbelievable.”

But BECKHAM is only one of the impressive projects you’ll read all about in the latest Queue. We also spotlight Steven Zaillian’s ingenious Ripley, his eight-episode adaptation of Patricia Highsmith’s landmark novel The Talented Mr. Ripley, featuring Andrew Scott in the title role and a striking ensemble led by Dakota Fanning, Johnny Flynn, and Eliot Sumner. We’re also diving deep into the mysteries of 3 Body Problem, the thrilling series from showrunners David Benioff, D.B. Weiss, and Alexander Woo. With the new drama, the trio faced novel challenges as they adapted Liu Cixin’s Hugo Award-winning book trilogy for the screen — chiefly how to make head-spinning concepts relatable to a general audience. “I think [characters] are the secret to a television series that really gets under your skin and becomes something living,” offers Woo.

Speaking of supremely ambitious series, Queue is paying tribute to the towering achievement that is Peter Morgan’s The Crown with an oral history of the royal drama to commemorate the final season. Morgan, his stars, and veteran members of the behind-the-scenes team look back on the experience of making six seasons of extraordinary television.

Additionally, we spend time with two actors from very different series whose performances have garnered plenty of attention. Guy Ritchie’s The Gentlemen is the perfect vehicle for Theo James to show off his swaggering star power as a member of elite English society who unexpectedly finds himself drawn into his late father’s underworld associations. Meanwhile, Sofía Vergara jettisons her contemporary glamor to vanish beneath the skin of one of the most fearsome cartel bosses in history with an astonishing turn in Griselda, a passion project she also executive-produced.

And, finally, our latest edition includes a special section devoted to comedy. The Netflix is a Joke Fest is the largest comedy festival in North America, and its filled with a jaw-dropping roster of brilliantly hilarious comedic minds, all photographed by the inimitable Mary Ellen Matthews. You won’t want to miss it.

Head to the Netflix shop and order the latest issue of Queue to sample these stories and much, much more.
