Elon Musk’s Crash Course Sells Around the World


Red Arrow Studios International has sold the event documentary Elon Musk’s Crash Course into Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Spain, Portugal and Israel.

From the team behind Framing Britney Spears, the documentary is an exposé of the world’s richest person: Tesla’s chief executive and Twitter’s putative new owner.

Elon Musk’s Crash Course has sold to Bell Canada (Canada), Nine Network (Australia), AMC Networks International (Spain and Portugal), TVNZ (New Zealand) and yes (Israel).

The New York Times’ investigation reveals the quixotic nature of Musk’s pursuit of self-driving technology—technology he claims is a “solved problem”—and its tragic results as several former Tesla employees speak out against Musk for promoting a program they believe is perilous.

Elon Musk’s Crash Course is produced by The New York Times and Left/Right, a Red Arrow Studios company. It debuted last month in the U.S. on FX and Hulu.

“In an era of Silicon Valley messiahs and a blurring line between corporate ambition and deliberate public misinformation, the work that investigative journalists like The New York Times’ Cade Metz and Neal Boudette are doing is of paramount importance,” said Tim Gerhartz, president and managing director at Red Arrow Studios International. “The hype around the autopilot technology cannot mask the lives it has cost, and we are glad to have global partners of the highest caliber to broadcast this searing and thoughtfully constructed documentary.”
