A+E Networks Asia today announced that it has begun production on a brand new reality entertainment series, Celebrity Car Wars, for HISTORY Asia. Produced by Emmy Award winning Active TV, Celebrity Car Wars sees six celebrities from the region face off in a series of highly entertaining driving challenges.
To get them up to speed, the celebrities will be coached by race car professionals through a variety of stunts designed to test their skill and patience behind the wheel. The adrenaline-filled series will be peppered with history takeaways, geeky information for driving-junkies, and top tips for the everyday motorist.
Celebrities putting pedal to the metal include actor/host Allan Wu (Singapore), former Miss Malaysia Universe Andrea Fonseka (Malaysia), former international model and TV personality Joey Meade King (Philippines), radio DJ and TV host “PK” (Thailand) and TV Host and model Marc Nelson (Philippines). Their egos are on the line for the ultimate bragging rights of winning the inaugural Celebrity Car Wars title.
Celebrity Car Wars will be hosted by Bobby Tonelli and utilize over 40 cameras. The 8×1-hour series follows the success of HISTORY Asia’s other original productions including Photo Face-Off, which is currently in its third season, and Ride N’ Seek, now in its fourth season.
It will air in the later half of this year on HISTORY Asia and HISTORY Japan. Sponsored by Caltex, the HISTORY Asia original production fills a unique gap in the automotive television space.
