Crystal Palace docuseries When Eagles Dare is set to be released on Amazon Prime Video on 4 June.

The series will follow the club’s rollercoaster years between 2010 and 2013, when it went from administration and financial ruin to playing in the play-offs and gaining promotion to the Premier League.

It tells the story of supporter Steve Parish’s efforts to save the club, which included a fan protest outside Lloyds Bank - whose subsidiary, Bank of Scotland, owned the ground, Selhurst Park - that helped Parish’s consortium to complete a buyout.

The 50-minute episodes will feature never-before-seen coverage from behind the scenes of the 2012/13 season, in addition to retrospective interviews filmed more recently. Interviewees include now chairman Steve Parish, former managers Dougie Freedman and Ian Holloway, and players such as Wilfried Zaha, Jonny Williams, Julian Speroni, Mile Jedinak, and Kevin Phillips.

The series has been created by the Eagles’ in-house production team, Palace TV, and is directed and edited by Sean Webb, produced by Chris Grierson, and executive produced byt James Woodroof.

Parish said: “The documentary provides unique insight into one of the most special groups of players and people I have worked with. I know that Palace fans have been desperate to see some of the footage captured in 2012/13 and will find the series fascinating. For fans of other clubs who dream of their team reaching the pinnacle of the English game, this is a story that shows that it really is possible.”
