Fans of the Fast & Furious franchise should steer themselves toward Netflix’s upcoming action-packed series Pedal to Metal. In many ways, this action drama show returns to the franchise’s roots with a focus on good old-fashioned (illegal) street racing.

Starring Benny Emmanuel, Renata Vaca, Andrés Delgado, Sylvia Pasquel, Gerardo Taracena, Silverio Palacios, David Montalvo and Tania Niebla, Pedal to Metal is a Mexican Netflix Original that will debut this Wednesday on the service. It consists of 10 episodes and is rated TV-MA.

What is Pedal to Metal on Netflix about?

Enrique Guerrero is a skilled mechanic and illegal car racer. He flees from Monterrey to Mexico City after he’s involved in an accident that results in the death of his competitor. In Mexico City, Enrique falls quickly into the car race (and theft) scene. In a mecca for stolen cart part stores and auto shops, Enrique feels like he’s found his calling, but he’ll have to take his rightful place as the heir to his family’s criminal enterprise.

Netflix has rated the drama TV-MA for substances, language and smoking. Since Pedal to Metal is geared toward mature audiences, it might not be suitable for ages 17 and under.
