DESCRIPTION:
(from Netflix's press release, September 2020) Netflix announced today the production of the first fictional drama about the idol Ayrton Senna da Silva (1960-1994). The project will give fans the chance to cross the finish line not with Senna, but with Beco or Becão, the driver's affectionate nicknames among friends and family. More than just remembering remarkable moments in his career, the miniseries is an invitation to explore the personality and family relationships of the three-time Formula 1 champion. Senna has deeply embodied the willingness of Brazilian people to get ahead in life - and speeded up the hearts of young people, adults and children around the world. The show, which portrays the man behind the national hero, is produced by Gullane for Netflix with active participation of the driver's family. The miniseries will have international locations in addition to intimate sets such as the house where Senna grew up, in São Paulo state, and to which his relatives granted unprecedented access.
