Filmmakers Mark and Jay Duplass are currently in production on “The Lady and the Dale”, an HBO documentary series exploring an audacious 1970s auto scam centered around a mysterious entrepreneur.

This latest HBO partnership with the Emmy(R) award-winning Duplass brothers (HBO’s “Room 104”), directed by Nick Cammilleri and Zackary Drucker, traces the story of Elizabeth Carmichael, who rose to prominence when she released a fuel-efficient three-wheeled vehicle during the 1970s gas crisis. As she wins over major carmakers and investors, a web of mystery unfolds regarding the car’s technology and Carmichael’s surprising past. A portrait of an extraordinary entrepreneur’s rise and eventual fall, the series explores a one-of-a-kind story of fraud, family and identity. The series is expected to air in 2021.

“We are excited to be collaborating yet again with HBO in the docu-series space, and for the chance to bring the complex story of Liz Carmichael and her three-wheeled car to life,” said Mark and Jay Duplass.
