Schumacher, a documentary on champion German Formula 1 racing driver Michael Schumacher, will stream on Netflix from September 15.
The film follows the journey from his humble beginnings to the top of Formula 1, where he dominated with seven world championship titles and a total of 91 victories.
Approved by his family, Schumacher features interviews with his wife and children, including F1 racer son Mick, and other past and present drivers, Netflix said.
Schumacher, who won a record seven F1 titles since equalled by Briton Lewis Hamilton, has not been seen in public since suffering severe head injuries in a skiing accident.
On December 29, 2013, the Formula One champion slammed his head on a rock while skiing with his son and friends.
He was airlifted to Grenoble Hospital and underwent two surgical procedures. He was put into a medically induced coma, from which he emerged in June 2014. Since September 2014, Schumacher has been cared for at home on the shores of Lake Geneva and his family fiercely protects his privacy.
Benjamin Seikel and Vanessa Nöcker from B|14 FILM GmbH produced Schumacher. Hanns-Bruno Kammertöns, Vanessa Nöcker and Michael Wech directed the film.
London-based Rocket Science is representing sales and distribution of the film worldwide and facilitated the partnership with Netflix.
