Giving viewers ‘intimate’ access as Tom embarks on the next chapter of his career, we’ll see the Olympian training with new coach Jane Figueiredo.
The documentary will also show Tom going public with his relationship with Dustin Lance Black.
Senior Executive Producer at Twofour, Neil Edwards, said: “It’s a privilege to have such intimate access to one of Britain’s best loved and most talented Olympians.
“Tom’s four year journey from London 2012 to Rio 2016 is the latest gripping chapter in a story we’ve all been following since he burst into the public consciousness as a young boy.
