We are currently in production on our latest high profile legacy documentary, entitled Steve McQueen - King of Cool. The film will tell the remarkable story of Steve McQueen, one of Hollywood’s most iconic tough guys, and will dig deeper into the underexplored aspects of the legendary star’s life - such as his immense passion for racing and all things fast - cars, motorcycles and airplanes. Network is working with Steve’s son, Chad McQueen, of McQueen Racing LLC, on the project.
Steve McQueen - King of Cool will air in the US on Spike, following in the footsteps of the company’s 2010 Academy Award shortlisted Muhammad Ali film Facing Ali and its recent documentary I Am Bruce Lee, which set all time documentary ratings records for Spike. FremantleMedia will distribute Steve McQueen - King of Cool internationally.
