ABC on 'Crash Course' with CBS' 'Thunder Road'

ABC has ordered a pilot from the producers of Hell’s Kitchen called Crash Course, in which contestants navigate an obstacle course in cars. This comes on the heels of CBS greenlighting Thunder Road, a similarly-themed reality show exec produced by McG. Crash Course exec producer Arthur Smith tells The Hollywood Reporter, “We do things with cars that you would never imagine. Yet our show is about the people, not the cars, and nothing brings out the worst in people than putting somebody in a passenger seat.” The pilot shoots this weekend. Dan Cortese and Orlando Jones have been tapped as cohosts.
