Here’s a true-life sports story Ted Lasso would love. A three-part docuseries (continuing Wednesday and Thursday at the same time) tracks the development and 2022 inaugural season of L.A.’s first pro women’s soccer team, Angel City Football Club. Natalie Portman founded the team with venture capitalist Kara Nortman and gaming entrepreneur Julie Uhrman, luring high-profile investors from the sports world (Billie Jean King, Serena Williams, Mia Hamm) and entertainment (Jennifer Garner, Eva Longoria, America Ferrera). Attendance was high for the first season, but so were the stakes and expectations, as the team and coaches contend with injuries and other challenges in hopes of making it to the playoffs.
