July 8, 2021 / 10:11 AM

 Motor programming has been a staple in Discovery Channel's lineup and the new series, GETAWAY DRIVER will bring audiences new voices, new speeds, and new cars. Discovery's motor programming is a subculture with a passionate following and this brand-new series with engaging characters will push the boundaries like never before. Hosted by actress Michelle Rodriguez who will be joined by rally champion Wyatt Knox, GETAWAY DRIVER, is the real life Fast & Furious, premiering Monday July 19th at 9PM ET/PT on Discovery and streaming on discovery+. In addition, viewers can get exclusive access to the series premiere July 12th on discovery+.

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 in a massive nearly 60-acre compound filled with obstacles. Part Baby Driver, part Grand Theft Auto, the Getaway 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?

Viewers can join the conversation on social media by using the hashtag #GetawayDriver and follow Discovery on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for the latest updates.

GETAWAY DRIVER is produced for Discovery by October Films. For October Films, Chris Muckle, Adam Vetri, Tom Fullford, and Jos Cushing are executive producers. For Discovery, Kyle Wheeler is executive producer and Paola Espinosa is associate producer.
