The upcoming docuseries focused on the world of pro-am racing directed and produced by Toni Calderon and Brad Peyton is following its open casting call at Sebring with a similar series of interviews during the SRO race event at Sonoma Raceway, March 30-31.
Headed by Calderon, the producer of racing documentary The Gentleman Driver, and Peyton, whose Hollywood credits include directing 2015’s San Andreas, 2018’s Rampage and the upcoming Atlas, the as-of-yet untitled series will have unprecedented, behind-the-scenes access to the pro-am drivers, team members, partners and officials who often risk their relationships, their businesses, and more for the sport they love.
The project is searching for compelling stories, both on and off the track, and isn’t limited to just drivers to tell the story of pro-am motorsports in the United States. Professional drivers, pro-am participants, crew members, spouses, parents, business advisors and partners are all invited to participate. The series is open to participants and insiders involved in the sports car racing world.
Interested candidates can schedule a 30-minute block of time to be interviewed, on video though this link: https://calendly.com/casusproductions. Interviews will take place on site at Sonoma Raceway.
“We've begun to build momentum for this project, and that showed during our casting interviews at Sebring,” Calderon said. “We spent significant time with 46 different drivers, crew members, partners, families, team owners and team managers who introduced themselves to us at Sebring. To no surprise, we found some fascinating characters in the sports car racing paddock. We want to continue to build toward our first season of production with another round of interviews, this time across the country at Sonoma.”
In addition to executive producers Peyton and Calderon, the producing team also includes former Netflix executive Justin Price, who was involved in the creation of the successful Formula One docuseries Drive To Survive; team owner/driver Rob Ferriol; Mike Zhu, the former Head of Strategy and Planning for wiip, the production studio behind HBO’s Mare of Easttown and Apple’s Dickinson; Beaux Jackson, producer of The Gentleman Driver; and Mark Sunderland, an Atlanta-Based film producer and entrepreneur who specializes in development and early stage companies. Peyton is represented by CAA and Sloane, Offer, Weber & Dern.
