In addition, viewers can get exclusive access to the series premiere July 12th on discovery+. An event like no other, Michelle Rodriguez brings the ultimate driving fantasy to life in GETAWAY DRIVER. This 8-episode competition series features 24 elite drivers from drift champions to street racers to hotshot YouTubers who compete to prove they have the skill behind the wheel and the mental toughness to outrun and out-drive the competition in a massive nearly 60-acre compound filled with obstacles. Part Baby Driver, part Grand Theft Auto, the Getaway Drivers will put it all on the line - sacrificing their own cars for the opportunity to be the wheelman in a real-life car chase. The rules are simple... evade the pursuers and escape the compound to score some cold hard cash. These drivers already have the loot- but can they get away to keep it?
