One of the many, many awesome shows slated to air this summer on Syfy includes a little Grindhouse-inspired TV series called Blood Drive. To whet our appetite for the high-octane drama, an impressive bunch of new NSFW bloody teasers have dropped.
Created by James Roland (Weeds), Blood Drive hails from Universal Cable Productions and executive producers John Hlavin (Underworld Awakening), David Straiton (Bates Motel), and Frederik Malmberg (Let Me In) as well as producer Mark Wheeler (Becoming).
The dystopian 13-episode series set in the near future stars Alan Ritchson (Smallville's Aquaman) as L.A.’s last good cop who is forced to go on a bloody death race across the country with cars that work on human blood. As you can see in the teasers, even a mother has no qualms feeding her newborn baby to the engine to keep the car running! Guys, I think it’s time to call Child Services.
Rounding up the main cast are Thomas Dominique, Christina Ochoa, Marama Corlett and Colin Cunningham. Now, buckle-up and take a look at the synopsis and teasers below. Blood Drive will race across our TV screens on June 14.
Los Angeles in the near future: where water is as scarce as oil and climate change keeps the temperature at a cool 115 degrees in the shade. It’s a place where crime is so rampant that only the worst violence is punished and where Arthur Bailey (Ritchson) — the city’s last good cop — runs afoul of the dirtiest and meanest underground car rally in the world, Blood Drive. The master of ceremonies is a vaudevillian nightmare, the drivers are homicidal deviants, and the cars run on human blood.
Buckle up, lube up, and prepare for everything you know about cable television to blow up!
