Abacus Media Rights has confirmed plans to distribute You First Originals’ Spanish language docuseries "Alexia: Labor Omnia Vincit" “This is a stunning and stylistically shot series recounting the rise of one of the world’s most popular and iconic sports stars and her role in helping grow the popularity of women’s football," Will Stapley, Head of Acquisitions at AMR said. 

Abacus Media Rights has secured worldwide distribution rights to "Alexia, Labor Omnia Vincit," (excluding USA, Latin America, Spain, Portugal and Andorra), filmed with English sub-titles.  First licensed by Prime Video Alexia, Labor Omnia Vincit (3 x 45’), "Far more than a standard fly-on-the-wall documentary, it tells the inspiring story of Alexia’s dedication to become the best of the best from such an early age as well as revealing the hardships she has overcome in her life," Stapley said. "We’re excited to take the show out to market in time for the Women’s FIFA World Cup, this summer.” 

Celebrating the rise of Alexia Putellas, who was just named FIFA’s Women’s Player of the Year in February 2023 for the second consecutive year, the title follows her personal journey during the year that completely transitioned her life, chronicling the transformation of a football player into a "global icon who has shaped the future of her sport and the history of women in sport," a recent release states. "Her dedication to the sport has revolutionised the women’s game."

The title features footage of the player preparing for matches, training at the football ground and getting ready for the Ballon d'Or ceremony in Paris, and features Alexia’s mother, Eli Segura, who talks about how her family made many sacrifices to find a girls’ team for her, Sabadell, a city in the province of Barcelona, a commute that her parents had to fit in around their work for the then eight-year-old rising football star. The FC Barcelona captain has won a raft of prestigious individual awards including the Ballon d’Or Feminin, the first and only player to win the award twice and in consecutive years, in addition to The Best FIFA Women’s Player, Golden Player Woman Award, UEFA Women’s Player of the Year, IFFHS Women’s Player of the Year and World Soccer Women’s World Player of the Year.
