Netflix’s ‘Hyperdrive’ is like ‘American Ninja Warrior’ with cars

first_imgTwenty-eight street racers and stunt drivers from around the world will get a chance to prove their skill and daring on the world’s stage thanks to a new series from Netflix.Actually, it’s not so much a “stage” as it is a 100-acre automotive obstacle course in Rochester, New York. Hyperdrive pits elite drivers and their cars against each other on 10 different race tracks and challenges. Executive producer and self-proclaimed speed demon Charlize Theron described the project pretty perfectly in an interview with Entertainment Weekly as “American Ninja Warrior meets Fast and Furious.”  From what we can gather from the trailer, the obstacles include some water features, a sort of gauntlet with suspended cars swinging back and forth, plenty of surfaces to drift over and a massive six-storey teeter-totter with jumps on it called “The Leveler.”The participants include a construction worker, a model, a delivery guy and even a lumberjack, though that last one’s less of a profession and more of a lifestyle. What they’ll be competing for is unclear, though we’re guessing there’s some sort of financial incentive encouraging these people to put their cars and potentially their own safety on the line.  Trending in Canada Hyperdrive will be released in full August 21 on Netflix.
