“Nickelodeon has always been innovative in its content covering different genres and arguments in its youth series,” said Tatiana Rodriguez , SVP of Nickelodeon Group Americas. ‘Formula A is an unprecedented story for Nick’s screen that tells the story of two charismatic and courageous karting pilots who live their lives to the limit. Undoubtedly, the plot and the aesthetics of the series will offer a fresh look at this genre and will captivate our audience in Latin America.
Produced by Somos Productions for Nickelodeon Latin America and created by Eduardo Jiménez-Pons , the series gives a new fun twist to the story of Romeo and Juliet, taking her to the race track of Ciudad del Este, where Max and Victoria compete and fall in love despite the rivalry between their two families. Both run as they are; Max is a serious and methodical boy, while Victoria is impulsive and naughty. On the track they are rivals, but outside of it they are inseparable. It’s a dangerous sport, but the real danger is falling in love with your competition.
The production seeks to lean on the growing interest of automotive sports such as Formula 1 and Nascar, and especially karting, which has gained popularity among children due to its high speed and adrenaline sensation.
