Premieres 19th July 2021
October Films for Discovery Channel
Editor: Jennifer Hampson
With GETAWAY DRIVER, October Films brings an event like no other to the Discovery Channel, the ultimate driving fantasy hosted by Fast & Furious star Michelle Rodriguez. This 8-episode competition series features 24 elite drivers from drift champions to street racers to hotshot YouTubers who compete to prove they have the skill behind the wheel and the mental toughness to outrun and out-drive the competition in a massive nearly 60-acre compound filled with obstacles. Part Baby Driver, part Grand Theft Auto, the Getaway Drivers will put it all on the line – sacrificing their own cars for the opportunity to be the wheelman in a real-life car chase. The rules are simple… evade the pursuers and escape the compound to score some cold hard cash. These drivers already have the loot- but can they get away to keep it?
Jen Hampson edited episodes 4 and 8, the last episode of the series, and had a blast working on this high octane, fast-paced series.
Don’t miss the premiere at 9pm on 19th July on Discovery Channel.
