NBC Sports just got more exciting as the network announces it’s adding the automotive YouTube sensation Drive to its Saturday morning lineup. That’s right, our friends Matt Farah, Chris Harris, and Mike Spinelli are taking their Internet show to the big time.
Drive on NBC Sports is scheduled for a 10-episide run with the pilot episode airing May 24th at 9:30 a.m. Eastern. The first show will be all about the 2014 Monaco Grand Prix F1 race and features the gang driving a McLaren 650S , a Ferrari F12 , and a Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG through the streets of Monaco.
Episodes of Drive will still air on YouTube, though likely without the large budget granted by NBC. We’re looking forward to another great auto-based show coming on TV and we hope NBC extends the 10-episode contract to a more continual basis. If the trio host a show that as good as their YouTube routines, it’s hard to imagine the TV show not being a hit.
