Recognizing that hanging out with Idris Elba, and maybe driving around cool race cars with him, would be pretty good, Shine TV has put into production a two-part documentary where we'd get to do that and finally become real men. To reportedly air first on BBC Two, King of Speed will follow the always enjoyable Luther and Pacific Rim star as he travels the US and Europe's racetracks "to trace the political, social and historical evolution of racing from prohibition to today"--from "I guess we can drive fast since we're sober anyway" to "let's get drunk on Coors and watch some NASCAR." Production is going on right now, perhaps at ovular pavement near you, but no airdate has been set.
