A+E Networks’ US cablenet FYI has boarded a co-production with Barcroft Studios and distributor TCB Media Rights for a show that explores unique vehicles.
Ultimate Rides (20 x 30 minutes) promises to “take viewers up close and personal with some of the world’s most incredible vehicles” and will air as part of the Drive strand on FYI.
Vehicles such as a jet-powered Amish buggy and an underwater convertible will feature in the series, which is being taken to MIPCOM next week by Kew Media-backed TCB. It will sell in all territories outside the US.
