Brothers Scott Have New Idea To Set Drama In The 60s
“I grew up in the North of England at a time when Stirling Moss was a hero. everyone wanted to be a racing driver. This is a hugely ambitious project and a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to tell the story of these iconic and legendary men who risked everything to win at Le Mans. It’s an epic story of courage and ambition and a history of racing which has never been told on such a grand scale."
This could be a pretty cool show, especially if you consider the fact that motor racing was a much more dangerous activity back then -- this could be the only "Mad Men"-inspired TV show to have some actual life-and-death drama.
The ghost of actor Steve McQueen, who starred in his own Le Mans, could not be reached for comment. (Deadline)
