Formula E’s behind-the-scenes docuseries, Formula E Unplugged, has returned with a second series taking viewers closer to the drivers and teams in the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship than ever before.
Formula E Unplugged series two focuses on the personalities in the Formula E paddock through 2022’s Season 8. It is the championship’s biggest season yet with 16 races in the heart of 10 iconic global cities including New York, Jakarta, London, Mexico City and Rome. Twenty-two drivers from 11 teams compete in the world’s first sport to combine dramatic motor racing action with the development of cutting-edge EV technology, and the season saw a new world champion crowned on the final race weekend in Seoul.
“The second season of Formula E Unplugged is about giving drivers the chance to take off their racing helmet and reveal their real personality, their motivation and fears in what is the emotional rollercoaster of world-class motorsport,” said Aarti Dabas, Chief Media Officer, Formula E. “This generation of sports fan wants to go beyond the sporting action and really understand the stories and backgrounds of the people involved.”
Viewers will be able to watch the six-part series two via Formula E’s network of broadcast partners including Eurosport (Europe and UK), Channel 4 (UK), CBS Sports Network (US), SpoTV (SE Asia), and Sky Sports 5 (New Zealand). The series will be available on Formula E’s digital platforms from March 2023.
Season 8 achieved record-breaking broadcast figures for Formula E, growing the cumulative audience 20% year-on-year to 381m with live viewership at an all-time high of 216m, up 10% on the previous season. Updates to the sporting format and enhancements to the broadcast presentation were behind the increases.
