"The Idris Elba Project" (TV show) is a reality series on Discovery Channel that follows the titular Golden Globe-winning and Emmy Award-nominated actor and producer as he pushes his body, mind and engineering know-how to the limit by racing on land, water and in the air.

Elba will immerse himself in rally driving, street racing, aerobatics and power boating to master not only the discipline of racing, but also the engineering, science and history behind it. He will join professional teams, take on challenges, receive coaching by some of the world's leading drivers and pilots and meet fellow speed freaks to share their secrets of how to get every last ounce of power out of his machines.

Each episode starts with Elba visiting a renowned motor sport competition, shot on locations across Florida, California and the British Isles, that will inspire his mission to take on some of the toughest racing disciplines in the world. To push his car, plane or boat to the utter limit, Elba gets under the bonnet and miles under his belt to prepare for the big race day that will see him go head to head with the professionals.

"The Idris Elba Project" is produced by Shine North and Idris Elba's production company Green Door Pictures. The series was commissioned by Elizabeth McIntyre, VP Production & Development Factual, Discovery Networks International. Victoria Noble is the executive producer for Discovery and Rick Murray is the executive producer for Shine North.
