We are currently seeking men and women who live near (or frequently drive to/from) New York City Area, Chicago and Denver for a clever, new TV series that showcases the funniest, wittiest and most opinionated drivers in America.  

This is not a docu-series. we will not “follow” you or your friends. The format of this show focuses on a small group of people (can be friends, family members, co-workers, classmates, etc.), who normally share a ride together, and will be given topics to discuss candidly & honestly.

We are looking for articulate and engaging people with clear opinions that they love to share with everyone…who are not afraid to tackle any topic…and most of all have a lot to say! The show will feature close friends/family/co-workers/ classmates from all walks of life who are entertaining and are willing to bring America along for the ride!  

If you have a blast driving around town with your best friends, family members or co-workers  … we want to hear from you!   

We are specifically looking for these outgoing, charismatic, and dynamic groups of people:

•  Best Guy friends (mid 20's -30's)

•  Parents and their children (ages 7–13) - kids must have big personalities and have an opinion about everything

•  Guy/Girlfriends (friends who have known each other for a while who may want to date each other but never have)

•  Siblings – brothers or brothers & sisters (mid 20’s- mid 30’s)
