Apple TV+ has given the new racing drama “Ferrari” a green light to go directly into series production. The television series is based on the life of the late Italian racing car racer and namesake businessman Enzo Ferrari. The story of Ferrari will revolve around Enzo Ferrari, the man who designed the fastest race car in the history of the motor industry, and the toll that his commitment took on his personal life.
The show’s protagonist is Enzo Ferrari, the brilliant racing car designer who made it his life’s work to create the world’s quickest race car. However, a chain of unfortunate events and suffering led up to this point. Between 1956 and 1961, Ferrari rebuilt his racing team from the ground up. He chose five promising rising stars of motor racing to compete for victory. The loss of his firstborn son, Dino, and what Ferrari perceived to be a betrayal on the part of his lead driver, Juan Manuel Fangio, left Ferrari with deep wounds.
The biographical series will be directed by Steven Knight, who has been nominated for an Academy Award; Paolo Sorrentino, who won an Academy Award for directing “The Hand of God,” will executive produce.
The best-selling historical novel “Ferrari Rex” by Luca Dal Monte served as the inspiration for “Ferrari.” “Ferrari Rex” was referred to by The New York Times as the “definitive biography” on the well-known character. When Ferrari’s first son Dino died tragically in 1956, and after what he saw as a major betrayal by his star driver Juan Manuel Fangio, the series follows his highs and lows as an individual and as a company.
Because both his father and older brother were interested in racing vehicles, Enzo Anselmo Ferrari had an early interest in speedy automobiles and competition at a very young age. He was a person who put in a lot of effort and had a lot of talent, and he began out as a test driver before building his global firm, Ferrari. Even though he had no formal training in engineering or physics, he was highly knowledgeable about automobiles and mechanical systems. Because of his creative ability and vast knowledge, he was awarded honorary degrees from both the University of Bologna and the University of Modena.
After the untimely deaths of his family members when he was still very young, he had to start over and construct himself from scratch. His passion for racing and automobiles propelled him on in the face of several setbacks and difficult circumstances in his working life.
Because he designed automobiles not just for racetracks but also for everyday use, he is largely credited with the development of today’s very quick and elegant road vehicles. He had a naturally sympathetic disposition because of the stories about how he cared for his drivers whenever they had injuries. It is often believed that he was the one who first used the word “fast.”
Knight expressed his delight at having the opportunity to share “such an emotional narrative about this remarkable man and his renowned company.” “Enzo Ferrari’s life was characterised by his dramatic emotional and professional journey, and ‘Ferrari’ is a celebration of an extremely complicated and intriguing human being,” says the author of the book “Ferrari.”
