MOTORTREND GREENLIGHTS "MOTOR MYTHBUSTERS," SPINOFF OF ICONIC "MYTHBUSTERS" SERIES

-- MOTOR MYTHBUSTERS to Debut in Third Quarter of 2021 Exclusively on the MotorTrend App --

Looking to answer the biggest questions on every car fan's mind, MotorTrend is melding science with the street in a joyful search for truth behind popular automotive myths in the all-new series MOTOR MYTHBUSTERS. Starring former MYTHBUSTERS alum Tory Belleci, mechanic Faye Hadley, and engineer and professional race car driver Bisi Ezerioha, the eight-episode MOTOR MYTHBUSTERS series is slated to premiere in the third quarter of 2021 and is being produced by Beyond Productions.

"We are taking on the famous builds that belie belief with our original take on the beloved MYTHBUSTERS franchise," said Alex Wellen, president and general manager, MotorTrend Group. "Some of the most famous episodes of the original series prominently featured vehicles, and fans want more. MOTOR MYTHBUSTERS brings viewers the most in-depth look yet with Tory, Faye, and Bisi who won't rest until they've confirmed or busted the biggest automotive myths."

Each episode of MOTOR MYTHBUSTERS tackles stories generated by pop culture, viral videos or urban legends. In a quest to separate fact from fiction, Tory, Faye, and Bisi put cars through extreme tests to confirm or debunk everything from extreme Hollywood car stunts to everyday questions that bug car owners.

"This spinoff series is a marriage made in heaven," said Beyond Productions president, John Luscombe. "The original, long-running MYTHBUSTERS show attracted a legion of dedicated and ever-curious fans and became a classic. Bringing our familiar scientific method approach to a series dedicated to all-things automotive is an exciting extension to an iconic franchise and I can think of no better partner for this new series than MotorTrend."

The MotorTrend App offers world-leading automotive series and specials including the all-new TOP GEAR AMERICA, the most complete collection of classic "TOP GEAR" (200+ episodes and specials spanning seasons one thru 27), the hit docuseries NASCAR 2020: UNDER PRESSURE, plus every season of SPEED RACER, WHEELER DEALERS, ROADKILL, BITCHIN' RIDES, IRON RESURRECTION, TEXAS METAL and many more.
