SPEED has ordered a trio of new shows as part of its next
slate of lifestyle programming including the trivia show Pumped! hosted by comedian Greg Fitzsimmons.
Pumped!, which has
been picked up for 20 half-hour episodes, is an ambush-style quiz show set at
gas stations where customers will compete for a cash prize by answering
automotive and pop culture questions.
The series is set to premiere in November.
The channel has also ordered 13 episodes of Hard Parts: South Bronx, a docu-series
that follows a business owner and his team as they search for rare auto parts. Another
game show, the hour-long Whipped,
gives contestants the chance to show off their driving skills on an extreme
obstacle course. Both series begin production in October for debuts in the
second quarter of 2012.
Along with the new series announcements, SPEED has also
picked up an additional 13 episodes of the first season of My Ride Rules. Wednesday night clip show Dumbest Stuff on Wheels has been renewed for a second season, as
has Car Warriors and Stuntbusters.
