Elon Musk Crash Course will be the FX network’s newest entry to The New York Times Presents documentary film series. The film, directed and produced by the award-winning Emma Schwartz, will reveal the true tale of Tesla and how it contributed to tragic repercussions.

Elon Musk, the world’s wealthiest person and CEO of the wonder-vehicle business Tesla, has maintained by his claim for more than 7 years that his cars have Autopilot capabilities that place them in a league of their own. To shake things up a bit and dispel this theory, New York Times investigative writers Cade Metz and Neal Boudette took on the billionaire’s firm and unearthed horrifying revelations.

The documentary will not hold anything back in exposing the Autopilot system as something that is: a hazardous scam. Viewers would not only be guided through the New York Times investigation, but they will also hear from people connected to the Elon Musk and the firm itself – former Tesla workers.

The New York Times Presents has so far shown to be a formidable force and by focusing on issues that impact the most. The documentary series has been behind such hard-hitting pieces as The Killing of Breonna Taylor, Malfunction: The Dressing Down of Janet Jackson, Framing Britney Spears, and Controlling Britney Spears, all with the goal of bringing justice to individuals who have been cruelly abused in the history. The latter of those two titles, which are significant works of investigation transformed cinema, surely helped put a spotlight on Britney Spears’ horrible conservatorship and most probably benefited the pop-star in terminating it.

Elon Musk’s Crash Course premieres on FX and Hulu on May 20.
