It’s being reported this afternoon that Apple TV+ is revving its wheels with an Enzo Ferrari TV series, with Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight and Academy Award-winning The Hand of God director Paolo Sorrentino attached.
Created and written by Knight, Ferrari is based on Luca Dal Monte’s Ferrari Rex and will examine how, in the pursuit of pure speed, the motor racing driver and entrepreneur dedicated his genius to building the fastest racing car in history but left a trail of tragedy and torment along the way.

Between 1956 and 1961, deeply wounded by the death of his firstborn son Dino and by what he considered a betrayal by his lead driver Juan Manuel Fangio, Ferrari rebuilt his racing team from scratch, selecting five promising rising stars of motor racing to fight for victory.
Ferrari is Knight’s second Apple TV+ show following Jason Momoa and Alfre Woodard-starring sci-fi thriller See, which will shortly end after three seasons. For more read the full Deadline report.
