Global channel provider Insight TV, along with Spark Content and Kestrel Beer are collaborating on an exclusive, brand-funded short-form series and documentary film called The Flying Kestrel.
The series hits the air this March across Insight’s linear and digital networks, and will be broadcast to 315 million homes across the globe as a 4 x 11′ short-form series and as a 1 x 44′ doc.
The series follows Kestrel Beer CEO Nigel McNally, his son Joel, and the Webster Race Engineering team, as they transform a dilapidated 1930s Riley Kestrel classic, into a land speed record challenger.
Gorgeously restored, complete with its original 1935 wooden body, steering wheel and mahogany dashboard, the Flying Kestrel has been boosted with a precision race turbo 2.5 litre, 5-cylinder engine capable of 900bhp.
“The Flying Kestrel’s story of ‘blood, sweat and beers’ unfolds with every episode and reveals the twists and turns both car and crew take in their quest to realize their dreams,”Arun Maljaars, Insight TV’s vice president of content and channels, said in a statement.
Executive Producers of The Flying Kestrel are Marc Hayward, Kristen Broberg and Arun Maljaars.
