TV WEEK reports today that Speed TV is planning “to air 10 one-hour episodes of ‘Wrecked … focuses on a sometimes risky life at a family-owned tow truck company in Chicago.”
Robert Ecker, VP of programming for Speed: “We have discovered over the course of time that while there are race fans, there are also people that have a love affair with the automobiles but are not necessarily interested in racing.”
Sadly though, it seems the Chicago-based show missed out on a major opportunity by starting the show now.
It really is a shame, considering SPEED will also miss out on the Redbirds’ impound lot fees, which could’ve gone to punching up the show’s production value.
(And no, we’re not going there with Josh Hancock, calm down Redbirds fans)
