I was an amateur wrestler for my sophomore year in high school. I posted a 5-15 record with only one pin and four forfeits (essentially, the other school’s team didn’t have someone in my weight division, so I’d get a forfeit). Most matches I would give up half way through and would usually grunt somewhat sexual responses to my opponent just to get a rise out of him. Now, THIS story certainly isn’t gonna be worthy of being featured in Netflix’s Losers, it’s just way too much of a downtrodden tale, but there are many more sports stories that should get way more attention and that’s what this series is. Combining a live-action docuseries with animated retellings of sports tales for an eight-part series is just what the doctor ordered with animated production from the legendary Augenblick Studios (Superjail)
Synopsis: We live in a winner take all society where losing is laughed off, dismissed and shamed. But what do we miss when we turn our back on the lessons that failure gives us?
