MotorTrend+ Greenlights ‘Super Turbo Story Time’ Adult Animated Series
Warner Bros. Discovery’s MotorTrend Group has just greenlit Super Turbo Story Time, an all-new 2D adult animated series sharing 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 MotorTrend Studio, the eight-episode series is the first adult animated project from MotorTrend. The show is slated to debut on MotorTrend+, a subscription streaming service dedicated entirely to the motoring world, in the first quarter of 2023.
In each episode, hosts swap their favorite car stories. While one host shares their most unbelievable automotive legend, the other one listens carefully, ready to jump in and flag any holes in the story or simply crack jokes. Stylized animation will be blended with active interviews with top celebrities and automotive authorities bringing the narratives to life.
“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 MotorTrend Group Global president and general manager Alex Wellen.
Featured hosts include Top Gear America co-host Rob Corddry; actress, producer, and car builder Emelia Hartford; Roadkill co-host David Freiberger; rapper, actor, and songwriter Xzibit; The Drive deputy editor and automotive journalist Kristen Lee; racer and voice of Formula D, Jarod DeAnda; Hooniverse co-founder and executive editor Jeff Glucker; Dave Shuten of Discovery Channel’s Car Kings; actress and stunt woman of Death Proof, Zoë Bell; and actor, comedian, writer and producer Colton Dunn.
“Based in truth, the tales told by our guests on Super Turbo Story Time won’t be limited by an embellishment governor,” shared Gabriel VanHuss, series Executive Producer and Vice President, Digital Programming, MotorTrend Group. “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.”
“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,” added 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.”
