Smith To Produce A NASCAR Rom-Com

Originally published on Dark Horizons by Garth Franklin

Amazon Studios is reportedly planning “Clean Air,” a new romantic comedy set in the world of NASCAR.

“Younger” writer Alison Rose Greenberg is set to write the screenplay about Lyla, an ambitious sports agent who loses her superstar client before the start of NASCAR’s season. She decides to take a chance on a rebellious female dirt track racer, seventeen-year-old Piper Kyte.

With her career on the line, Lyla’s challenge – getting Piper NASCAR-ready – is only won if she can also reform Piper’s reclusive father, Matthew Kyte, a former NASCAR champion who infamously walked away from the sport and hasn’t been seen in four years.

Will Smith’s Westbrook Studios will partner with The Chainsmokers’ Kick The Habit Productions and NASCAR to produce. Smith is only producing at this time, with no plans to star.
