BBC gets Fired Up for DeLorean doc

DeLorean: Back from the Future

BBC2 and BBC Northern Ireland have ordered a documentary about car maker John Z DeLorean from Fired Up Films, marking the Northern Irish indie’s first commission from the pubcaster.

DeLorean: Back from the Future will examine the rollercoaster career of DeLorean and his attempt to build the car of the future in the 1980s – the DMC DeLorean made famous by the Back to the Future film series. The car was manufactured in Northern Ireland capital Belfast.

On BBC2 the show will be a 100-minute documentary film, while the BBCNI version will comprise a pair of one-hour episodes.

Directed by Mike Connolly, the doc’s executive producers are Fired Up’s Jon-Barrie Waddell and Jon Smith. Daisy Scalchi and Justin Binding are the commissioning execs for BBC2 and BBCNI, respectively.
