New Documentary About Tayla Harris Set For Release On Amazon Prime Video

She's currently one of the biggest Aussie sports stars right now, so it's only fitting that Tayla Harris gets her own documentary.

Amazon Prime Video are set to release an original doco centred around the boxing and AFLW star's life.

And if Amazon's previous AFL series Making Their Mark is anything to go by, then film fans should be in for a treat.

Harris' documentary, titled Kick Like Tayla, is set to provide viewers with never-before-seen access to Harris' life both inside the ring and on the footy field.

While covering her decorated sporting career, the doco will also delve into important topics such as sexism, cyber-bullying and the power of social media - three things very close to home for the Aussie star.

"I'm thrilled to be a part of this new Amazon Prime Video documentary where I can show what is a usually very private side to myself," Harris said.

"You will see what makes me tick, how I go about game day, cutting weight for fights and plenty more."

Supplying viewers with behind the scenes access to all things Harris, the doco is also set to include interviews from big-name Aussie rules stars as well as a number of high-profile boxing personalities.

"We are pleased to be adding another Australian Amazon Original sports documentary to our growing lineup for Prime members in Australia and around the world," Prime Video Australia's head of content Tyler Bern said.

"Sport is so intrinsic to the Australian way of life, and Tayla Harris is one of the world's most exciting and inspirational athletes of our generation. Tayla's grit and unflinching determination make her an inspiration to many, and the documentary will provide a unique perspective on what drives her success."

Harris' ability with the boot is undeniable, but unfortunately she found her name in the headlines back in 2019 for all the wrong reasons - and through no fault of her own too.

When Seven Network posted an incredible picture of Harris kicking a goal on their social media channels, she became the target of internet trolls.

In response, Channel Seven made the decision to delete the picture and the move was immediately met with huge backlash and criticism from fans accusing the network of not sticking up for athletes and simply giving in to online abuse.

They eventually republished the iconic image and issued a public apology.

That wasn't before Harris had her own say on the matter, posting the picture herself with the caption: "Here's a pic of me at work... think about this before your derogatory comments, animals."
