Prime Video has announced Motorheads, a new coming-of-age ensemble drama headlined by Ryan Phillippe and written by John A. Norris (All American).
The regular cast also includes Nathalie Kelley, Michael Cimino, and Melissa Collazo.
Motorheads is described as being “about first love, first heartbreak, and turning the key in your very first car.”
Set in a once-thriving rust-belt town that’s now searching for a glimmer of hope, Motorheads is the adrenaline-filled story of a group of outsiders who form an unlikely friendship over a mutual love of automobiles.
Lauren Anderson, head of AVOD originals, unscripted and targeted programming at Amazon MGM Studios, said: “Motorheads is a gripping story, anchored around the series of “firsts” that accompany young adulthood.
“We have an incredible group of actors bringing John’s (out)cast of characters to life and we are excited to share this wistful, nostalgic journey with our global, Prime Video customers”.
Norris, who will also executive produce the series, said: “From the very beginning, Amazon has been so supportive of the vision of the series. And the cast and crew we’ve assembled is beyond my wildest dreams”.
