One of the most exciting parts of ESPN's World Cup plans is Inside: U.S. Soccer's March to Brazil. The series will take viewers behind the scenes with United States World Cup training camp, to the practices, the dorms, the coaches' meetings and even sharing some personal stories from the players.

The six episode series will premiere on May 13 with a one-hour show and will run until the start of the World Cup, with a live finale.

Series premiere - May 13, Tuesday, 7:00-8:00 p.m.
Episode 2 - May 21, Wednesday, 7:00-7:30 p.m.
Episode 3 - May 29, Thursday, 7:30-8:00 p.m.
Episode 4 - June 3, Tuesday, 7:30-8:00 p.m.
Episode 5 - June 10, Tuesday, 8:30-9:30 p.m.
Epilogue - June 11, Wednesday, 9:30-10:00 p.m. : LIVE

This will be the first show of its kind for the U.S. It will be similar to the U.S. Soccer videos they occasionally put online, except way better, more detailed and it will come in the run up to the World Cup.

Unfortunately, the cameras will go away once the World Cup gets underway so there won't be any pre-match, in-match or post-match coverage from Brazil, but as far as training camp goes, this will be unprecedented.

The series is being produced by Jonathan Hock, who has done several 30 for 30's, and Roger Bennett, who is part of Men in Blazers, of course. The two worked together on the Barbosa: The Man Who Made Brazil Cry 30 for 30.

Whether you are a diehard fan who can't get enough of the U.S. or a casual fan jumping in for the World Cup, this will be an incredible look at the team. Set your DVR's...now.
