Netflix Series Takes On ‘Resident Evil,’ ESPN’s Derek Jeter Docuseries ‘The Captain,’ And Hulu’s Victoria Secret Expose – What’s Upstream July 14-20

No matter what your opinion of Michael Jordan or Tom Brady is, you can’t deny the greats. Netflix and ESPN have recently made successful multi-part documentary series on these respective stars. Now, ESPN wants to apply the formula to another highly decorated but polarizing team sports star, New York Yankees legend Derek Jeter. The seven-part docuseries titled Captain features candid interviews with Jeter, his family, teammates, rivals, and sports critics. The series explores Jeter’s five Yankees championships, including the 2000 win when he was the World Series MVP. Jeter also talks about his record 3,465 hits, as well as why his relationship with Yankees teammate Alex Rodriguez soured. Lucky for us, this week’s new slate of shows is pretty darn good.
