Will & Jada Smith Team Up With Formula 1 For New Show3 weeks ago by Amber Le in TV News
Will and Jada Pinkett Smith have a new show coming out and it involves Formula 1. Westbrook Studios, their production company will be linking up with Apollo World Touring for a new show that revolves around the kings of the racing industry. The series was inspired by The Bucket List, Will’s Facebook show.
One one of the episodes, Smith and his son, Trey raced at the Formula 1 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. Guiding them along their track was World Champion Lewis Hamilton, from there the idea sparked a blueprint leading up to the new content.
The series is said to incorporate pre-filmed stunts and challenges to be completed by Hollywood’s finest, as well as live performances around Formula 1 Grand Prix weekends. With this latest partnership, Formula 1 hopes to provide better content for their loyal fans as well as attract new viewership.
Smith will be sitting in the executive producer’s chair throughout the entire project.
“I’ve always been a massive fan of the Formula 1 world and fell even more in love with the sport while shooting an episode of Will Smith’s The Bucket List with Lewis Hamilton at last year’s Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. 1’s commitment to creating engaging and inspiring content for its fans mirrors our mission at Westbrook Studios. The synergy of our storytelling is undeniable, and I’m excited for fans to join us on this wild ride.”
