Teaser reel for new web series Turn 9 - Click above to watch video after the jump

Matt Farah, longtime friend of Autoblog and host/producer of The Smoking Tire, pinged us this weekend to let us know about a new project he's involved with: a scripted web drama called Turn 9. Basically, it's a car-flavored variation of the Entourage formula, following the career of fictional race driver Kyle Turren and his buddies. In addition to the requisite parties, hot rides, and bikini-clad eye candy, Turn 9 is set against a backdrop of real racing series and will feature appearances by real drivers and celebrities as the story unfolds.

Farah plays lead character Turren's crew chief (aptly named "Matt") and is basically responsible for handling all the car-related stuff on the program. Sounds like fun, and since network TV utterly fails at car shows, we'll be sure to check out Turn 9 when it premieres online. Hit the jump for a brief teaser reel, and if you don't already, be sure to follow Matt's ongoing exploits at TheSmokingTire.com as well.

      it'll have sweet cars and hopefully top gear-like filmography but i guarantee the storyline will suck as hard as any dime a dozen drama (cheesy lines, wont go into detail about the cars besides bolt on references, minor league race terminology, etc)...

      it just blow ballsak, you'll see when they pump every hot bodied chick they can get their hands on to make up for the sucky storyline.

      its like bad horror movies, show boobs to make up for the bad acting.

      all criticism aside i hope im wrong and it is actually a good watch

      i was even gunna try n follow that show that came about a race across america with soccer moms and criminals and whoever... forget the name, there were only like 3 episodes before it got the axe

      Isn't this a little too close in name to Turn 10, the game developer?
        • 4 Years Ago
        Possibly. It refers to Turn 9 at Willow Springs, which is a very high speed, difficult turn. It's a working title for now, not locked 100% on it, so we're taking suggestions if you've got something better. It's close to Turn 10, but not close enough that you'd get sued for infringement.

        Very Cool.

        Make sure that AB posts on the details of the new show so we can watch it.

      They tried this with Corvette Girl or something from Digital Corvettes - ended up selling the website when the whole thing sucked the company drive for $$$.

      If you have a first class production, you have to also have first class $$..which then means you need some heavy advertising to make sure you can make $$$.

      If the US networks cant get a decent Top Gear-like show - why in the world do they think this will work? Also, not a fan of Smoking Tire. I'd prefer to have the AB Crew (Dan, Chris, Sam and Alex) relocate to Michigan and do a show w/ John McElroy as host.

      So it's basically the same except you can't haggle the price...
        • 4 Years Ago
        Doh, replied to the wrong article...
      • 4 Years Ago
      Seems alright. I just hope they can have a good script without throwing in too much advertising.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Nice, I'm excited to see what comes of this.
      • 4 Years Ago
