Madrid — Los Bragas, run by actress-producer-turned-director Alice Braga (“Elysium,” “I Am Legend,” “City of God”) and writer-director Felipe Braga (“Trash,” “Latitudes”), is seeking international broadcast TV outlets for “A Vida Fora dos Campos,” an intimate web/TV portrait of Brazilian soccer player Neymar da Silva Santos Jr. which marks Alice Braga’s directorial debut.

As the world girds up for June’s FIFA World Cup soccer tourney, “A Vida” (literally “Off-Field Life”) digital build takes soccer coverage to new levels.

Packing two seasons of six five-to-six minute episodes, first seen as web-segs, “A Vida” is produced by Njr, Neymar Jr.’s own label, and Los Bragas, marking Neymar Jr.’s entry into production. In April, using the content, the partners launched a Neymar Jr. YouTube channel, the first with original content co-produced by a soccer player himself, said Felipe Braga.
