Documentary streaming and on-demand service CuriosityStream will explore transportation breakthroughs in the four-part docuseries Speed.

The series follows host and engineering expert Sean Riley as he walks viewers through historical achievements, current technological standards, and predictions for tomorrow, considering everything from ancient outriggers to modern bullet trains to futuristic interplanetary travel.

Arrow Media is producing the series for CuriosityStream, with Duncan Copp serving as series producer and Ashley Potterton as executive producer. Noah Morowitz is executive producing for CuriosityStream.

“Tracking down rare examples of historic vehicles and getting access to the latest technologies still in development meant¬†traveling around the world non-stop for months and following the story wherever it took us,” said Riley in a statement. “I’m passionate about helping people better understand both where we’ve been and where we’re going – and connecting how science and technology drive our modern-day world.”

“With Speed, we have created the perfect programming for the insatiably curious and for adrenaline junkies by combining thrilling action with unparalleled production values and leading topical experts,” added CuriosityStream president and CEO Clint Stinchcomb. “It’s the epitome of documentary entertainment for today’s viewers — captivating content that engages your intellect and takes you on a wild ride.”

Speed premieres on April 18 on CuriosityStream.
