Lightbulb Drive inks 10-episode deal with NBC Sports Network

Filed under: Coupe, Performance, Videos, Mercedes-Benz, Ferrari, McLaren, TV/Movies

Today is a good day for Chris Harris, Mike Spinelli and Matt Farah, the hosts of the entertaining YouTube series Drive. The show has officially moved from the world of online video and become an actual, honest-to-goodness television show.

In addition to its YouTube exploits, which will continue, ten episodes of the show will air on the NBC Sports Network. The debut will run this Saturday, and coincide with NBCSN's coverage of the 2014 Monaco Grand Prix. From the sounds of it, this first episode should be unlike anything the trio could do on the Internet.

The team is going on a Top Gear-like trans-European adventure in a Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series, a Ferrari F12 and a McLaren 650S. The three will converge on Monaco, and explore the legendary atmosphere that surrounds the principality when the Formula One World Championship rolls into town.

While it might sound like the trio is doing a fair impersonation of Jeremy, James and Richard, Spinelli was quick to point out that this wouldn't be "some pale rip-off of that famous BBC show" in a post on Jalopnik.

Drive on NBC Sports: Monaco airs on Saturday, May 24 at 9:30AM Eastern, on the NBC Sports Network. If you've enjoyed any of the Drive videos in the past, you won't want to miss this. Scroll down for a peak at the first trailer for the Monaco episode, below.Continue reading Drive inks 10-episode deal with NBC Sports Network
