New Thai limited series brings to light the dark secrets behind Muay Thai
Brace yourself! Netflix is taking you behind the veil of secrecy and into the dark corners of Thai boxing — where secrets, misery, and physical as well as mental pain are aplenty. Hurts Like Hell is a limited series inspired by true events in the Muay Thai scene, where a sport long regarded as a national heritage is ridden with untold and unexpected truths away from the spotlight. Get a look into the inner circle with Nat Kitcharit, Pu – Vithaya Pansringarm, Peter – Nopachai Jayanama, Ek – Thaneth Warakulnukroh, Tok – Suppakorn Kitsuwan, Phu – Phuriphat Poolsuk and more. The limited series is directed by Kittichai Wanprasert, with Pattana Junjareonsuk as its executive producer.
Hurts Like Hell paints a picture of the diverse lives that shape the Muay Thai world through a new way of storytelling that combines reality-based, documentary-style narrative with intriguing TV drama. Fans of the sport will get to learn about the reality of Muay Thai straight from insiders that range from boxers, gamblers, commentators and critics to promoters, cornermen, club owners, and ring doctors in multi-perspective stories that shed light on the impact of each event and action — ultimately lifting the curtain to reveal the dark, controversial secrets in the ring and beyond. It’s not the body that hurts like hell — it’s the mind. Take a ringside seat and dive deep into the underworld of Muay Thai in Thailand from July 13, only on Netflix.
