JOEY BARTON’S alleged assault could feature on a Fleetwood Town documentary about the 2018-19 season.
Netflix, Amazon, Sky Sports and the BBC are all rumoured to be interested in taking on the behind the scenes look at the club, with Barton at the helm, according to the Mail.

On Saturday, Barton was reported to have knocked out two of Barnsley boss Daniel Stendel’s teeth after headbutting and punching him in a ridiculous tunnel brawl.
Witnesses claim the German lost two teeth after the League One game at Oakwell – a 4-2 win for Barnsley.
Stendel, 45, was left with a bloodied mouth, according to Barnsley forward Cauley Woodrow, with the managers separated by police.
Woodrow branded Barton “foul” on Twitter before swiftly deleting his post stating his version of the melee.
The ex-Fulham star tweeted: “To have a manager that can physically assault another manager in the tunnel is disgusting, causing our manager to have blood pouring from his face!
“People like you don’t deserve a place in the game of football, you are foul.”
Sky cameras later dramatically captured police stopping Barton from leaving the ground.
Reports also claim Barnsley club officials were filming the entire brawl and could use the clip in any potential disciplinary proceedings.
The clash kicked off at the full-time whistle, after Stendel appeared to rant at the famously short-tempered Fleetwood boss.
After walking away, Barton shortly after followed him into the tunnel towards the dressing rooms, provoking the German into calling him “a f***ing scally”.
Barton is then said to have launched a violent attack, first headbutting the Barnsley chief, then punching him and grabbing him by the throat.
The Fleetwood chief was then prevented from leaving Oakwell as police held up his BMW – with Barnsley confirming the incident was being investigated by South Yorkshire Police.
