All right, I’m getting incredibly interested in Syfy’s upcoming series “Blood Drive,” which is an homage and throwback to grindhouse films of the 70’s. The series, which apparently was barely approved for television, is all about a day and age where cars no longer run on fuel… they run on human blood. In order to survive in this post-apocalyptic world, several people agree to partake in a twisted cross-country death race.
Check out the brand new trailer below, but be warned that it’s very much NSFW!
“Blood Drive” stars Alan Ritchson, Thomas Dominique, Christina Ochoa, Marama Corlett, and Colin Cunningham.
The “Blood Drive” series is from Universal Cable Productions and executive producers John Hlavin (Underworld Awakening), David Straiton (“Bates Motel”), and Frederik Malmberg (Let Me In), along with producer Mark Wheeler (“Becoming”). James Roland (“Weeds”) created the project and is a co-executive producer on the series.
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!
