‘Welcome to Wrexham‘ is the brand new sports documentary series coming to FX featuring Rob McElhenney and Ryan Reynolds. They take viewers into their journey of owning a struggling football club and their experience of connecting to the townspeople of Wrexham. It shows McElhenney and Reynolds’ purchase and stewardship of the Welsh football team Wrexham AFC.
“In 2020, Rob McElhenney and Ryan Reynolds teamed up to purchase the team in the hopes of turning the club into an underdog story the whole world could root for,” reads the synopsis. “The worry? Rob and Ryan have no experience in football or working with each other. That said, they are serious about their investment in Wrexham, improving the club, and doing right by the townspeople. From Hollywood to Wales, the pitch to the locker room, the front office to the pub, Welcome to Wrexham will track Rob and Ryan’s crash course in football club ownership and the inextricably connected fates of a team and a town counting on two actors to bring some serious hope and change to a community that could use it.”
