(Los Angeles) - MotorTrend Group, a Warner Bros. Discovery company, today announced the greenlight of SUPER TURBO STORY TIME, an all-new adult animated series telling larger than life, untold, (mostly) true stories from the automotive world. Co-produced by the award-winning animation production company Titmouse ("Big Mouth," "The Boys Presents: Diabolical," "The Legend of Vox Machina") and by MotorTrend Studio, the eight episode series is the first adult animated project in the history of MotorTrend. SUPER TURBO STORY TIME is scheduled to premiere on MotorTrend+, the leading subscription streaming service dedicated entirely to the motoring world, in the first quarter of 2023.
In each episode, two hosts gather together to swap their favorite car stories. While one host shares their most unbelievable automotive legend, the other host listens carefully, ready to flag any holes in the story or simply crack jokes from the peanut gallery. Using energetic, stylized animation blended with active interviews with top celebrities and automotive authorities, SUPER TURBO STORY TIME will bring each host's narrative to life in a highly entertaining, informative style. Featured hosts include: Rob Corddry, comedian, producer, and co-host of TOP GEAR AMERICA on MotorTrend+; actress, producer and car builder Emelia Hartford; David Freiberger, co-host of ROADKILL on MotorTrend+; rapper, actor and songwriter Xzibit; Kristen Lee, automotive journalist and deputy editor of The Drive; racer and the voice of Formula D, Jarod DeAnda; Jeff Glucker, co-founder and executive editor of Hooniverse; Dave Shuten of Discovery Channel's CAR KINGS; actress and stunt woman of "Death Proof", Zoë Bell; actor, comedian, writer and producer Colton Dunn; and more.
"Everyone has a car story, and what we're developing with our talented partners at Titmouse will bring to life those stories in captivating and creative ways you've never seen before," said Alex Wellen, Global President and General Manager, MotorTrend Group.
"Based in truth, the tales told by our guests on SUPER TURBO STORY TIME won't be limited by an embellishment governor. Audiences can expect to be entertained with legendary, unexpected automotive stories full of humor and fronted visually by the very best animation from the remarkable Titmouse team," said Gabriel VanHuss, series Executive Producer and Vice President, Digital Programming, MotorTrend Group.
"Car history is full of legends, from racing to building, to humiliating Hitler on his home turf, we've collected a little bit of everything automotive for SUPER TURBO STORY TIME," said Daniel C. Katz, Executive Producer for Titmouse. "We're excited to work with MotorTrend Group to produce the first-ever adult animated series that offers intriguing car stories told by amazing guests and presented in a whole new way with animation."
