(Los Angeles) – MotorTrend Group, the largest automotive media company in the world, announced today that it has ordered new seasons of the hit series IRON RESURRECTION, BITCHIN’ RIDES and TEXAS METAL, MotorTrend TV’s #1, #2 and #3 most watched series (Persons 2+), respectively. Season five of IRON RESURRECTION and season four of TEXAS METAL will premiere in 2021 with season seven of BITCHIN’ RIDES scheduled to premiere this fall on MotorTrend TV.
“Fans gravitate and relate to the blood, sweat and gears that Joe Martin, Dave Kindig, Bill Carlton and their teams pour into every one-of-a-kind project,” said Alex Wellen, global president and general manager, MotorTrend Group. “They create the finest restorations and custom cars anywhere. We’re delighted these hit series will continue bringing viewers every step of their creative process and look forward to admiring more of their inspired artistry and mechanical mastery.”
Season to date among key demos on MotorTrend TV, BITCHIN’ RIDES was also #1 in Men and Persons 25-54 and #3 in Men 18-34; IRON RESURRECTION was #2 in Men (tie) and Persons 25-54 and #4 in Men 18-34; and TEXAS METAL was #1 in Men 18-34 and #2 in Men (tie) and Persons 25-54.
IRON RESURRECTION takes viewers inside Martin Bros Customs where Joe Martin, his wife Amanda and his best friend Jayson “Shag” Arrington along with their team of top-notch craftspeople see that rusted out roadsters and torn up trucks of all makes, models, shapes and sizes are given new life. In every episode Amanda and Shag roam the Texas countryside for lackluster vehicles (or clients bring vehicles into the shop) that they can transform into masterpieces of four-wheeled metal. Amanda has an eye to spot potential deals and knows where to find the good stuff while Shag, dubbed “the fastest mouth in the south”, has the skills to deal for the best possible price. Once secured the vehicle goes to the shop where Joe and his small but hugely talented team use their customization, fabrication, mechanical and painting skills to make Joe’s automotive vision into reality.
Working on all car types across every decade, BITCHIN’ RIDES shows how Dave Kindig, shop foreman Kevin Schiele and the Kindig-It Design team render, design, build and restore vehicles from the ground up. Starting with a blank sheet of paper, Dave sketches his detailed vision for every build. Based on that sketch, the team takes over creatively bending steel, welding, installing parts and customizing every detail to transform what’s on paper into jaw-dropping automotive reality. But Kindig doesn’t let his team have all the fabrication fun; he gets his hands dirty helping around the shop with builds, problem solving and meticulously painting and decaling cars.
MotorTrend TV rides into the heart of Texas to bring car fans inside the clever custom creations of mastermind Bill Carlton and his team in the all new series TEXAS METAL. As the owner and innovator behind Houston’s Ekstensive Metal Works, Carlton pushes his team to build the best one-off cars and trucks for people from around the country. TEXAS METAL follows their work as they make the ordinary extraordinary using everything from rusted our wrecks to top of the line vehicles.
For MotorTrend TV, IRON RESURRECTION is produced by Discovery Studios, BITCHIN’ RIDES is produced by Fischer Productions and TEXAS METAL is produced by BMC Inc.
