The vehicle restoration show “Overhaulin’” will be coming back to television, according to a recent article in Variety. The show, which follows iconic customizer Chip Foose as he performs major transformations on beat-up vehicles, was a big hit when it originally aired on TLC from 2004–2009. The show has been picked up by the Discovery Channel-owned Velocity channel. “'Overhaulin’' is exactly the type of programming we want to bring to Velocity because it fits with our genre of auto-themed shows geared toward the upscale male,” Bob Scanlon, Velocity’s senior vice president, told Variety. “[It’s] sure to be a ratings driver.” The new episodes are slated to air later this fall and will once again feature Foose in a starring role.
“I am thrilled to be returning to television with a new and improved version of 'Overhaulin,'' and especially excited to be working with the team at Velocity,” Foose said in an interview with SEMA News. “Velocity is the perfect home for 'Overhaulin’' and I’m looking forward to shooting all-new episodes bringing viewers compelling stories of car owners who are surprised to have their much-loved treasures overhauled.” For information on Velocity TV, click here.
