ABC has given a green light to the competition series Crash Course. The network plans to air seven one-hour episodes in August. Orlando Jones (MadTV) and Dan Cortese (Veronica’s Closet) will serve as commentators:
Each episode features five couples (such as brother and sister, best friends, spouses, etc.) undertaking four extreme driving challenges. The first three rounds have contestants performing such feats as driving on two wheels or navigating intense weather conditions. Contestants have to work together when, for instance, the passenger is given sole control of the brake.
One couple is eliminated during each round. The final round is the Crash Course, a large obstacle track.
