Apple TV+ orders series based on the life of automaker Enzo Ferrari

Apple TV+ has given a straight-to-order series based on the life of automaker Enzo Ferrari, according to The Hollywood Reporter

The streamer has given a straight to series order to Ferrari, from Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight and director Stefano Sollima (“Without Remorse,” “Sicario: Day of the Soldado”). 

The drama also counts Lorenzo Mieli (“My Brilliant Friend”) and Paolo Sorrentino (“The Young Pope”) among its executive producers. The series is inspired by the best-selling biography Ferrari Rex by Luca Dal Monte, published by Giorgio Nada Editore and by Giunti.

Here’s how the series is described: Five years. Five drivers. Five deaths. One trial. In the name of passion, in the pursuit of pure speed. At the center of it all a titanic man, complex and multifaceted, who dedicated his genius to the mission of building the fastest racing car in history. Enzo Ferrari: his name became a boast, an aspiration, and ultimately legend. But there was a trail of tragedy and torment along the way. Between 1956 and 1961, deeply wounded by the tragic death of his firstborn son Dino and by what he considered a betrayal by his lead driver Juan Manuel Fangio, Enzo Ferrari rebuilds his racing team from scratch, selecting five promising rising stars of motor racing to fight for victory.
