BBC Factual has commissioned a landmark series on Elon Musk, the world’s richest man, from 72 Films (The Rise Of The Murdoch Dynasty).
Speaking to those who know Musk best, including family members, close friends and business associates, the three-part series promises to get to the heart of who Elon Musk really is.
The Elon Musk Show (w/t) will tell the intimate story of Elon Musk’s journey to become the world’s richest man, using extensive and unseen archive from his time in Silicon Valley to analyse the key moments in Elon’s career, from his first tech start-ups to Tesla, Space X, and most recently Twitter.
Directors Marian Mohamed and Jeremy Llewellyn Jones commented: “There is no getting away from Elon Musk. It’s always exciting to be documenting the biggest stories of the day. Our series will go inside Elon’s inner circle, examining the billionaire’s incredible rise and the truth behind this modern icon."
BBC Commissioning Editor Simon Young added: “Elon Musk is one of the most enigmatic and intriguing people in the world. Exploring his roots and the way he has revolutionised fields as diverse as space exploration, the internet and green tech will shed new light on how we got to now."
