BBC Three has renewed their short-form series Supercar, Superfam for a second season. Six episodes, each consisting of ten minutes, have been ordered for the show’s second season. The renewal comes close to a year after season one launched on BBC Three.
Supercar Superfam offers a window into an aspirational British-Asian family. Brothers Kash and Shabs, owners of a supercar garage in Essex, take us into their world of slick whips, sibling rivalries and supercar style. They own a supercar workshop in Essex, which customises and revamps some of the most powerful sports cars in the world.
They started on the drive way of their family home in Ilford 20 years ago, and between them, now own an array of their own luxury cars. The series captures their lives through the prism of family, love, life and business. The duo’s ‘superfam’ is made up of their mum and dad – with whom Shabs lives in the family home – Kash’s wife, Shella and their two kids, and younger sister, Mari, who has been exploring the world of modest modelling.
Season two picks up a few months after Kash and Shella bought their first house and moved into their new family home, and Shabs is free and single, after cancelling plans for his arranged marriage. The supercar business is going full-throttle, with a high-pressure job for the team – to take bling to a whole new level with a super sparkly Lamborghini job. Shabs reveals hidden skills in the studio as a rapper and Shella shows Kash who’s boss at home.
The short-form series is produced by Transparent Television (part of the Argonon Group), with Jazz Gowans, Ruairi Fallon and Francis Baker serving as the executive producers. Former BBC Three Controller Damian Kavanagh commissioned the show’s second season. The Commissioning Editor for BBC Three is Nasfim Haque. Season two premieres on the iPlayer on Thursday July 11th.
“This is a unique slice of 21st century British life with an authentic, remarkable – but totally relatable – family unit. All that, plus the greatest super cars in the world. What’s not to love?”, said Transparent Television’s CEO Jazz Gowans. “We’re thrilled that the success of Supercar Superfam means it’s back for a longer run. This family have been a hit with fans, who are in for some high-octane viewing – it will not disappoint.”
While BBC Three Commissioning Editor Nasfim Haque added: “It’s great to get another glimpse into the crazy lives of these brothers. Together Kash and Shabs bring energy, warmth and humour to the series, as they open the doors to the world of million-pound supercars and camaraderie.”
