“SPEED is the quintessential CuriosityStream project; as it combines historical and technological insights with mesmerizing visuals and engrossing storytelling for programming that is hugely entertaining and thoroughly enlightening,” said John Hendricks, Chairman and Founder of CuriosityStream.  “We partnered with Arrow Media to produce SPEED using heart-pounding action to connect the transportation methods of our distant ancestors to our dreams of how we could travel in the future.”

Through the four-part series viewers will be taken across the seas, through the skies, and into space to Mars and beyond. 

“SPEED is the remarkable story of innovative engineers who never took no for an answer and who have defined our world.  These great minds made it their life’s work to create machines whose speed would have a profound impact on humanity,” said Tom Brisley, Creative Director for Arrow Media.  “Finding rich stories and turning them into a thrilling narrative for a global audience is at the heart of Arrow Media’s programming experience.
