Nascar is amping up its commitment to original content by teaming up with Mexican helmer-thesp Eugenio Derbez on a comedy feature.
A partnership between one of Mexico’s most powerful stars and one of the biggest brands in sports dovetails with the motorsports company’s overall original content strategy, which includes more Latino-themed projects.
Nascar’s cachet among Latinos has grown in recent years as drivers such as Cuban-American Aric Almirola and Mexican Daniel Suarez have triumphed in both the Nascar Sprint Cup series and Nascar Xfinity series. Derbez raced competitively in Mexico and has a deep passion for the sport.
Derbez helmed, co-penned and toplined “Instructions Not Included,” the most successful Spanish-language release ever in the U.S., which grossed $44.5 million. Benjamin Odell, partner of Derbez’s La-based production company, 3Pas Studios, will serve as producer of the comedy along with Derbez.
