Discovery recently premiered the program “I owe you one: Celebrities and cars”, a new production for motor lovers, where Maca Carriedo and Pepe Maqueo are guiding the remodeling of the perfect car together with prominent celebrities such as: Eduardo Capetillo, Sandra Echeverría, Fátima Molina, Juan Diego Martínez, Matisse and María León.
in every episode the main objective is to restore a car belonging to a special person who has marked the life of each of these personalities, so the public will be able to get to know these figures in a more personal way, be moved by the stories and be surprised by the results. In this regard, Maca Carriedo, an expert in the automotive industry and one of the most important communicators today, talks about this show where she combines her passions for television and cars.
“I am enjoying it a lot. When we start, I did not know who was going to be invited and they were a very pleasant surprise, I already knew some of them and others I am very fond of, like María Leónyour chapter is going to be fantastic, but then came Sandra Echeverría who has been a great discovery for me because I like her phenomenally and it was a great chapter too. And yes, I just think I was able to combine things that make me feel very good: the world of cars and being able to talk and get meat from these figures that arouse so much curiosity”.
The program is for car lovers, but also for those who don’t know much about them, but who do want to see their favorite artists and learn about the stories that unite them with the people they value. “Whenever I talk about cars, I try to get them out of that niche, because cars are practically everywhere, you may not know anything about cars, but you get into one, whether it’s yours or someone’s. And I think that these different formulas to get cars out of that niche have worked, this is a recipe that has no loss and that will hook you, because perhaps you wanted to see it (the program) because Matisse is there, but in the end you already want to see it. how the hell did that car look and how did we make it look like that”.
Maca also explains that everything that is seen on the screen is real and it is happening, “like the problems we were facing or that Pepe said that he did not like a color and that I defended it. Then yes we got involved with the processes and the redesign of the car, we studied who it was for and what it needed. It was not a program where I arrived and they told me what to do, I arrived already knowing what we were going to do, I knew that we had to remove windows and how to do it, and that we could include celebrities who had that will in that process, it was the That made me even more excited.”
He confesses, for example, that Eduardo Capetillo went to more calls than he had to go because he wanted to see the process of the car, which was long, “because the restoration processes are very long and we were also doing six cars at the same time, it was a circus with many rings and a bit crazy, but what you see on the show is just what happened. We do paint, polish and choose ourselves, of course, with a great team and many professionals, because although we know a lot about cars, it’s not like we know how they are painted, but we get involved in absolutely all the processes”.
Maca began as a communicator on the subject of cars and it is an area in her career that she continues to enjoy and that the personalities she knows, as well as those close to her, consult her to find out which car to buy, or explain the processes to them, so she is very happy with this project and warns that the episode with Matisse will be very special.
“Fátima Molina was a great chapter that already came out where she wanted to help an association, her story moved me a lot and the way she sees life; also the story of Matisse and his causethat is one of my favorite chapters where we managed to make a unique car in the world, which means that it exists and the number of children that car will be able to help, that is making a difference, using the platforms that we have in favor of society, that in the end we would have to do that by all means, we are not going only for the rating, but to make a difference. They are going to be able to know something about Pablo (de Matisse) and his family that perhaps we did not know and that is a story worth telling.“, ends.
