Jason Priestley & Caitlin Carmichael To Topline Female-Focused Car Racing Drama ‘Speedway’ From Meritage Pictures
Exclusive: Beverly Hills, 90210 alum Jason Priestley and Caitlin Carmichael (Dwight in Shining Armor) will star in Speedway, a female-focused car-racing drama currently in development from Jane Kelly Kosek’s Meritage Pictures. Priestley, a former race car driver himself, will also serve as executive producer and is set to direct a number of episodes in the potential series, which is being pitched to broadcast and streaming networks.

Created and written by Kosek with a story from Kosek, Penny Edmiston and Chelsey Neders, Speedway follows 15-year-old Jordy (Carmichael) through her journey to become a race car champion. The series takes a fresh look at the race car industry through the eyes of a young, talented race car driver from a small town, who experiences many obstacles in her journey, including being taken seriously as a professional driver. Priestley will play a top race car driver who oversees one of the last remaining family-owned race tracks in America.
