Discovery Networks Western Europe has renewed Cars That Rock With Brian Johnson for a second season, TVWise has learned.
The original motoring format, which features AC/DC front man Brian Johnson indulging his passion for fast cars, has received an order for six hour-long episodes for its second season, which will debut in Western Europe in 2015 before subsequently airing across Discovery Networks International.
The renewal comes after Cars That Rock With Brian Johnson proved to be a ratings hit when the show’s first season rolled out globally across Discovery’s international channels. The series is produced by Back2back Productions and is executive produced by Catherine Ball, David Notman-Watt and Benedetta Pinelli.
“We are very proud to welcome Brian back with this eagerly awaited second series”, said Discovery Networks International’s VP Production & Development for Factual Elizabeth McIntyre, who ordered the second season. “We look for real experts in all our shows and as notorious speed freak, competing in vintage car races all over the globe, Brian is the perfect man for the job.”
While David Notman-Watt, Managing Director of Back2back Productions, added: “Back2back is excited to be teaming up with Brian Johnson and Discovery once again on this rock and roll trip around the greatest cars ever designed and built.”
