I am not sure if we are talking about the same show, but back when I
was working for one of the anime companies here in America, they were
negotiating for the home video rights to the Speed Racer cartoon that
was "being shown on American TV right now", now this was over a year
ago, so I am not sure if it was the same show or not. However, the
point is that one of the selling points was that it was directed by
the original director of Speed Racer. Now that could have just been
marketing hype, and I only ever watched one episode, so I don't know
this for sure, but I got the distinct impression that there was at
least some level of involvement with the original staff.
