Discovery UK has commissioned Betty to make new engineering show Builds on Wheels (wt) for discovery+.
Presented by Jimmy Doherty, the 8×60 series, which is co-produced with Krempelwood, will hunt out those who are turning everyday run-arounds in to extraordinary motoring marvels. Converting anything from removal vans, fire engines and military trucks into awesome homes from home, ready to hit the road and explore the world in comfort.
Jimmy will be joined be his friend and engineer Jimmy de Ville, who will be on hand to offer technical support.
When they are not doing their bit for amateur builders, Jimmy and Jimmy will be hitting the road, to get inspiration from some of the best completed builds around, test-driving extraordinary conversions. Jimmy Doherty will also get the chance to fulfil a lifelong ambition of building his own dream vehicle.
Jimmy Doherty said, “It’s been a joy to meet so many passionate people, taking control of their destiny and creating their dream getaways. And they’ve given me some great ideas for my own incredible vehicle conversion. I’m looking forward to loading up the family and hitting the road – you’ll definitely see me coming!”
Jimmy de Ville added, “Helping people through the technical challenges involved in creating their dream vehicles which will allow them to realise their dreams, enabling them to experience the freedoms of the open road and the wonders of the wilds is a true pleasure. Working with Jimmy creating a mad cap adventure mobile is nothing short of joyous.”
Discovery’s Simon Downing said, “We’re excited to welcome the Jimmys to discovery+ and expand our catalogue of iconic factual entertainment on the service. Audiences can expect a funny and inspirational series with some remarkable motoring conversions.”
Betty’s David Harrison said, “Never before have so many people grabbed spanners and grinders, united in their passion to explore the great outdoors and we’re delighted to join Jimmy and Jimmy’s mission to bring these inspirational stories to the discovery+ UK audience.”
Commissioned by Simon Downing and Victoria Noble for discovery+ UK, the series will be executive produced by David Harrison for Betty, Jon Stephens for Discovery, and Blair Krempel and Mark Wood for Krempelwood.
