'Race for the Planet' to be made available in Baltic and Nordic countries, Netherlands, and Poland.

Extreme E docuseries 'Race for the Planet' is launching on Viaplay on 26th August and will be made available in Baltic and Nordic countries, Netherlands, as well as Poland.

Executive-produced by NEO Studios, the five-part series covers Extreme E’s inaugural season, from the racing and all-electric cars to the stories behind the teams, while bringing the environmental issues that sport for purpose series seeks to highlight.

Ali Russell, chief marketing officer at Extreme E, said: “We are delighted that our ‘Race for the Planet’ docu-series will be available to a whole new audience on Viaplay’s streaming platform.

“Scandinavia in particular has such a rich history and passion for off-road racing, and is also forward-thinking in its efforts towards electrification and reducing emissions – an ethos shared by our pioneering championship. We can’t wait for them to see all of the behind-the-scenes stories of our sport for purpose series.” 

Anouk Mertens, NEO Studios chief executive and 'Race for the Planet' executive producer, said: “We’re thrilled to be working with Viaplay to showcase the ground-breaking Extreme E racing series. 

“The dramatic race footage, the talent and compelling stories of the drivers and teams are a major part of what makes this series so enjoyable. We also know that the powerful messages regarding climate change, the environment, and our planet will equally resonate with the audiences.”
