Idris Elba is hitting the road for a new reality series. The award winning actor has teamed up with the Discovery Channel for “The Idris Elba Project,” which will find him attempting to master the art of racing. Idris will travel to Florida, California and the British Isles to learn more about different types of motor sports, including rally driving, aerobatics and power boating. In a statement, Idris explains that the “extreme challenges” presented in the series will take him out of his comfort zone. He also promises that viewers will hear “amazing stories” about how far people will go to “satisfy their love of speed.” “The Idris Elba Project” is set to premiere sometime next year.
