Netflix To Launch New Driving Obstacle Show Hyperdrive On 21 August
If you can imagine an ambitious crossover between The Fast and the Furious and Ninja Warrior you're some way to understanding what we're dealing with here.
It's called Hyperdrive and it sounds absolutely badass.
The show will see drivers from around the world take on their unique set of challenges that include swinging vehicles and see-saw bridges in super-powered vehicles.
Oh, and the show is being produced by Hollywood A-Lister Charlize Theron.
If you're keen, Hyperdrive will premiere on Netflix's streaming platform on 21 August and will run for an initial 10 episodes.
The series will see 28 drivers square off against one another in a selection of qualifying rounds, before a finals round will take place to decide once and for all who is the champion.
Well, for this season at least.
Sounds like fun, right? By the looks of the course it looks bloody dangerous as well, mind.
The construction company that designed and built the course, Optimation, shared a short video that details exactly what the intrepid street racers will be up against. A teaser image shared by Netflix also shows Ford Mustang, Chevy Camaro and a 1969 Dodge Charger being driven on the course.
Blimey, imagine the insurance on that if one of them flips.
To prepare for this first season, the producers of the show searched far and wide for the best drivers, trawling drifting and drag racing competitions to find the exact type of adventurous driver they'll need for an intriguing debut contest.
Chris Cowan, one of the executive producers, told Entertainment Weekly: "We like to call it American Ninja Warrior meets Fast & Furious.
"We wanted to create a groundbreaking spectacle that you could only find on Netflix - something that was too stupid to attempt anywhere else.
"We wanted to provide this democratic global competition where car enthusiasts have a place to go to try and win a championship and really compete for something that matters.
"We wanted to create the one competition that takes in all the different competitive car events into one competition - not professionals, real people."
You had us at 'too stupid to attempt anywhere else', mate.
All 10 episodes of the first season of Hyperdrive will be released on Netflix on 21 August.
