If there’s a television network with a reputation for going fast, it’s the CW. Just check out the superheroics of the scarlet speedster Barry Alan each week on CW’s The Flash. Now, the CW is putting the pedal to the metal with a new documentary series that examines speed from behind the steering wheel of an Indy car.
Produced by VICE World News and directed by Emmy Award-winner Patrick Dimon, 100 Days to Indy offers a behind the scenes look at the race teams vying for victory in the 100 calendar days leading up to the 107th Indianapolis 500. Four-time Indy 500 winner (and Dancing With the Stars champion) Helio Castroneves’ struggle to cinch a fifth victory from a new generation of youthful competitors is largely the focus of this six-part series.
“The team behind 100 Days to Indy has been working tirelessly to capture the powerful stories of these incredible drivers as they compete at death-defying speeds to be the best of the best,” said President of Entertainment at The CW Network, Brad Schwartz.
Would-be viewers have plenty of time to clean off the edge of their seat. 100 Days to Indy premieres on the CW on Thursday, April 27.
