There’s good reason for U.S. soccer fans to be excited for this summer’s World Cup. Not only does the team get the chance to face some of the best players in the world, but the network broadcasting the English-language rights to the tournament in the United States — ESPN — have plenty in store to entertain USMNT fans.

Among its World Cup lineup is the new series “Inside: U.S. Soccer’s March to Brazil,” premiering this Tuesday at 7 p.m. ET.  The show will focus on the the American players as they prepare for the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.

The schedule is as follows (all times Eastern):

May 13, Tuesday, 7:00–8:00pm: Series premiere                                                                  
May 21, Wednesday, 7:00–7:30pm: Episode 2                                                                        
May 29, Thursday, 7:30-8:00pm: Episode 3                                                                          
June 3, Thursday, 7:30-8:00pm: Episode 4                                                                            
June 10, Tuesday, 8:30-9:30pm: Episode 5                                                                            
June 11, Wednesday, 9:30-10:00pm: LIVE series finale – Epilogue

Tuesday’s premiere will focus on introducing some squad members and head coach Jurgen Klinsmann. The rest of the six-part series will go behind the scenes to the U.S. training camp and the team’s warmup friendlies in May and June.

An idea like this needs to be in the right hands to be executed correctly, and ESPN have made an inspired choice by naming Roger Bennett and Jonathan Hock as producers. You all know Bennett from Men In Blazers, and he and Hock have already collaborated on the terrific 30 for 30 documentary, Barbosa: The Man Who Made Brazil Cry.

If you miss any of the episodes, don’t worry. They’ll be re-aired multiple times on ESPN2, ESPN Deportes, and ABC.
