Preview of FOX's New Drama 'Drive'

Here’s a sneak peek at FOX’s new mid-season drama Drive by executive producer Tim Minear (Firefly, Angel, Wonderfalls). To me, it sounds like bizarre-o concept. Check it:

DRIVE is an action-fueled drama following a diverse group of Americans driving for their lives (or the lives of their loved ones) in a sinister, cross-country road race. Some of them have been coerced into joining The Race; others have sought out The Race themselves, hearing rumors of the $32-million prize. Each has a reason to compete. And each must win.

Among the varied racers are a man thrust into The Race in an effort to find his missing wife; a single mother competing under great strain … or possibly something much more strange; a buttoned-down scientist and his rebellious 15-year-old daughter; two brothers in a stolen, pimped-out Caddy that carries secrets of its own; and a gorgeous and mysterious female stowaway who may well hold the key to the secrets of The Race.

There are other competitors as well, but when no one is told whom they’re racing against, or even where the finish line is, anything is possible. With each mile clocked, the drivers get closer, not only to the finish line and a critical, life-changing victory, but to understanding the mystery behind The Race itself.

During the FOX Winter TCA earlier today, FOX president Peter Ligouri said, “We’re very excited about Drive. We have every faith that this is going to be a top show for us.” Drive will premiere in a two-night, three-hour event on Sunday, April 15 @ 8PM and Monday, April 16 @ 8PM.

Pictured above L-R: Mircea Monroe as Ellie, Riley Smith as Rob, Taryn Manning as Ivy, Rochelle Aytes as Leigh, Michael Hyatt as Susan, Kristin Lehman as Corrina, Nathan Fillion as Alex, Emma Stone as Violet, Melanie Lynskey as Wendy and Kevin Alejandro as Winston.

Tidbits: Nathan Fillion replaced Ivan Sergei (Jack & Jill), who played the lead in the pilot. Amy Acker (Alias, Angel) will play Nathan Fillion‘s missing wife, Kathryn Tully.

    This is from a fantastic writer.

    It will be a great show but unfortunately I don’t think it will last. Most great shows don’t. The sheep flock to American Idol and great shows die for being too smart for the every(cave)man.

    That little redhead is hot.

    I see that the two brothers are no longer driving a “stolen, pimped-out Impala”… did they get threats from the Winchester brothers? :)

    I’m REALLY looking forward to this show!

    I’m so excited for this show. I never watched Firefly, but I loved Fillion as Caleb on Buffy S7, loved Amy Acker as Fred (I’m still nervous about her actually being in the cast until i see her in some promotional material) and as a huge Angel fan, I think Tim Minear wrote some of the best episdoes of that entire series…and was sorely missed when he left (evidence Angel S4). Anyhoo, this is really exciting. I can’t wait! I love when whedonverse people do well!
