Netflix have released the trailer for an upcoming documentary series about John DeLorean – creator of the legendary DeLorean car as made famous by the “Back to the Future” films. The series was originally aired on BBC4 and on iPlayer in the UK as both a 1-hour documentary and then an extended episodic form titled “DeLorean: Back from the Future” but it has been renamed for Netflix as “Myth & Mogul: John DeLorean”. The 3-episode series will arrive on Netflix on July 30th although in the UK it will be branded as a BBC series.
Combining exclusive access and interviews with never before seen footage shot by Oscar winning director D.A Pennebaker (“Bob Dylan: Don’t Look Back”) this 3-part documentary series explores the rise and fall of automotive icon John DeLorean, the poster boy of late ‘70s corporate greed. Epitomising these hubristic times with his grandiose vision of the car of the future, the series will show how John DeLorean came to captivate the world.
