“Marching Orders,” a 12-episode series about Bethune-Cookman University’s Marching Wildcats band, debuts Friday on Netflix.

“Nobody works as hard as we do,” band director Donovan Wells says in the series opener. “Nobody pays attention to the details as much as we do.”

The unscripted series looks at auditions to make the more than 300-member band at the private university in Daytona Beach.

“Marching Orders” also explores how joining the band has become a family tradition accompanied with high expectations. The series examines the hard work, long hours and exuberant style that members bring to the group.
