MotorTrend Group, a Warner Bros. Discovery company, today announced the greenlight of Super Turbo Story Time, an all-new adult animated series telling larger than life, untold, (mostly) true stories from the automotive world.
Co-produced by the award-winning animation production company Titmouse (Big Mouth, The Boys Presents: Diabolical, The Legend of Vox Machina) and by MotorTrend Studio, the eight episode series is the first adult animated project in the history of MotorTrend. Super Turbo Story Time is scheduled to premiere on MotorTrend+, the leading subscription streaming service dedicated entirely to the motoring world, in the first quarter of 2023.
“Everyone has a car story, and what we’re developing with our talented partners at Titmouse will bring to life those stories in captivating and creative ways you’ve never seen before,” said Alex Wellen, Global President & General Manager, MotorTrend Group.
In each episode, two hosts gather together to swap their favorite car stories. While one host shares their most unbelievable automotive legend, the other host listens carefully, ready to flag any holes in the story or simply crack jokes from the peanut gallery. Using energetic, stylized animation blended with active interviews with top celebrities and automotive authorities, Super Turbo Story Time will bring each host’s narrative to life in a highly entertaining, informative style.
“Based in truth, the tales told by our guests on Super Turbo Story Time won’t be limited by an embellishment governor. Audiences can expect to be entertained with legendary, unexpected automotive stories full of humor and fronted visually by the very best animation from the remarkable Titmouse team,” said Gabriel VanHuss, series executive producer and VP Digital Programming, MotorTrend Group.
