3 New Motor Series Coming to Discovery, Including Michelle Rodriguez's Getaway Driver
Feeling the need for speed? We've got you covered in 2021. Competition Series GETAWAY DRIVER, Hustle and Roll, and The Hop bring the ultimate driving fantasy to life.
An event like no other, Michelle Rodriguez brings the ultimate driving fantasy to life in GETAWAY DRIVER. This 8-episode competition series features 24 elite drivers from drift champions to street racers to hotshot YouTubers who compete to prove they have the skill behind the wheel and the mental toughness to outrun and out-drive the competition. This is all done in a massive nearly 60-acre compound filled with obstacles. The drivers will put it all on the line, sacrificing their own cars for the opportunity to be the wheelman in a real-life car chase. The rules are simple... evade the pursuers and escape the compound to score some cold hard cash. These drivers already have the loot – but can they get away to keep it?
“I’m glad Discovery has decided to take it to the edge with a show like this. This is a whole new type of challenge for racers of all classes, I’m excited for what we’re pioneering here,” said Michelle Rodriguez.
From executive producer Jamie Foxx comes HUSTLE & ROLL, a behind-the-scenes look into the life of the world's most successful celebrity car dealer, RD Whittington, and a group of highly competitive luxury car dealers who specialize in making their clients’ dreams come true by any means necessary. But, in a world where million-dollar cars are posted on Instagram and sold the next day, luxury is not always pretty. Everyone knows everyone, no one trusts anyone, and millions are on the line.
THE HOP gives viewers a glimpse into the underground world of hopping-lowriders, following four elite custom lowrider garages in the country as they evolve their businesses and compete to stay on top. Lowriders have been around for decades, appearing in music videos, movies, and TV series that created a new car-culture. This team will add in super-sized hydraulics, so their custom lowriders launch eight or ten feet in the air. These garages must juggle the everyday business of running their shops, building lowriders for customers, and crafting vehicles to face off against rivals in hop contests. Because in the lowriding game, winning equals business - with tens of thousands of dollars at stake in each vehicle.
These exciting new series join fan favorites STREET OUTLAWS and DIESEL BROTHERS as part of the action-packed Discovery motor line-up.
