Discovery has commissioned Workerbee to produce two new car-themed series for its free to air channel, Quest.
Motor Pickers (12×30’) will follow classic car expert Paul Cowland and builder and restorer Helen Stanley as they help desperate car buyers select the perfect used car within their budget.
From SUVs to high end sports cars, Helen and Paul will assist buyers as they test a selection of cars and give honest advice as well as their own tips and tricks to help buyers with their selection.
World’s Greatest Cars (6×60’) is a celebratory series that brings together well-known car experts to showcase the best cars ever made.
Featuring Mike Brewer, Jimmy De Ville, Ant Anstead, Helen Stanley, Paul Cowland and Drew Pritchard, Marc Priestley, Karun Chandhok, Vicki Butler-Henderson and Rory Reid, each episode will be themed and will feature a different type of car.
From supercars to 4×4’s and rally cars, the experts will passionately champion their own favourites then vote on their favourite cars of all time.
Simon Downing, SVP, Head of Factual and Sport, Discovery UK said: “We’re thrilled to be partnering with Workerbee on these brand new motoring commissions.
“Motoring is a key vertical on Quest and is gaining popularity and prominence in our schedule every year.
“We’re delighted to be super serving Quest audiences with more automotive programmes than ever before – with a boosted library of high-octane car content.”
Victoria Noble, VP Original Content, Factual, Discovery said: “With a long history of commissioning car programmes, I’m particularly pleased to be commissioning editor for these fantastic new shows.
