Mattel and Netflix have announced “Hot Wheels Let’s Race,” a new animated children’s series from Mattel Television Studios, will debut on Netflix globally March 4.

Inspired by Hot Wheels, the action-packed comedy series for kids follows the newest generation of racers: Coop, Spark, Mac, Brights, Axle and Sidecar as they attend a racing camp that always puts the pedal to the metal.

“Between the show’s characters, propulsive cars and pulse-pounding music, we want to make audiences feel like they’re literally gripping the wheel for an unforgettable ride with ‘Hot Wheels Let’s Race,’” says Rob David, vice president, content creative, Mattel Television Studios, executive producer, “Hot Wheels Let’s Race.”

The official trailer features the show’s theme song performed by Patrick Stump, award-winning musician, singer-songwriter and lead vocalist for Fall Out Boy. Stump composed, recorded and produced the theme song for “Hot Wheels Let’s Race” in addition to leading the composition of the score, underscore and music cues for all episodes.

“I spent a lot of my childhood in my grandpa’s garage handing him tools while he worked on cars and I daydreamed about music,” says Stump. “But Hot Wheels was my way of connecting to his love of cars. That’s why I was so excited to get the opportunity to work on ‘Hot Wheels Let’s Race’ with Mattel Television Studios. The word I’m always using to describe my music for this series is ‘pulse.’ There’s a tempo and a rhythm that permeates the series as soon as the tires hit that iconic orange track. It’s a real joy to get to be a part of that.”

Season 1 of “Hot Wheels Let’s Race” will be available on Netflix March 4.
