From the ashes of world war, three men unite on a quest to build the world’s greatest race car.
ABOUT THE SERIES
Magnificent Madness is a multi-season television series produced by US-based Duncan Entertainment Group. Each season features a multi-part documentary series about global events and innovations with entertaining twists and turns defined by genius, creativity, and the abstractions associated with blind ambition.
The episodes are character-driven and feature well known personalities whose successes and failures make history, and whose lives are defined by invention, innovation, drive, and passion.
AN UNLIKELY TEAM
Season one of Magnificent Madness is based on the unique collaboration of racecar driver Tazio Nuvolari, design engineer Ferdinand Porsche, and Italian industrialist and amateur racecar driver Piero Dusio in their quest to make the world’s greatest Grand Prix car.
The story takes place between 1930-1950 in southern Europe and South America. Magnificent Madness was shot entirely on location in Italy, Argentina and the United States.
Most of us make decisions based on the question “what’s the worst thing that can happen?” But not Tazio Nuvolari. The name of the world’s greatest driver is synonymous with the ability to go against the darkest corners of your subconscious with a passion and focus that transcends fear and defies death.
Documentary filmmaker Chip Duncan is the creator of Magnificent Madness. For season one, Duncan is joined by fellow producer Robert Huck, composer Peter Batchelder, archivists Stephanie Ballard and Theran Pfeiffer, Argentinian-based musicians Supercharango, and the sound design and mix team from Milwaukee-based Independent Studios. The award-winning team from Duncan Entertainment Group is responsible for this production. The consulting producers for Magnificent Madness include Antonio Brunet, Dan Markley and Ed Godshalk.
