Discovery is expanding the Wheeler Dealers franchise. The channel has commissioned Wheeler Dealers: Dream Car, an eight episode spin-off that sees Mike Brewer help car lovers trade-up their unwanted vehicles to the car of their dreams.
Dream Car follows Brewer as he turns his attention to people who lack the know-how or resources to get their dream motor. Each episode sees Mike and his trusted mechanic Marc ‘Elvis’ Priestley meet a new client and find inventive ways to add value to their existing vehicle, before flipping it for a profit and reinvesting the proceeds in a series of trade-ups that result in a dream car.
From auction houses and salvage yards, to the mechanical workshop, Mike is lifting the lid on the secrets of trading up, teaching viewers how to add value, read markets and make deals to score their own dream car. The spin-off is being produced by betty and was commissioned by Victoria Noble. The executive producers are Victoria Noble, Oliver Wilson, David Harrison and Michael Wood. Dream Car will air on Discovery Channel in a number of markets including the UK, Netherlands, South Africa and France; MotorTrend App and MotorTrend TV in the U.S and channels including DMAX Italy and Germany and Metro Poland across EMEA.
“We’re delighted to welcome Wheeler Dealers: Dream Car to Discovery’s growing motoring line-up. Wheeler Dealers is one of our most popular franchises with a huge fanbase around the world who are eager for more hours and new spin-offs”, said Simon Downing, Senior Vice-President and Head of Factual and Sport for Discovery UK. “This show delivers all the smart deals and mechanical upgrades of Wheeler Dealers, with a new element where Mike ‘gives back’ to car lovers, helping them win the car of their dreams.”
