Netflix can't get enough of automotive shows, but 'The Crew' could be the best yet.
Looking for something to watch? Netflix probably has something for you, especially if you're into cars (which you presumably are if you're browsing this page). And now it has a new show in the works that'll likely appeal to racing fans especially.
The streaming-television company has announced a new series called "The Crew," starring none other than the "King of Queens" himself, Kevin James. The show will center around NASCAR, with James playing the old-school crew chief of a stock-car racing team whose owner has died and left it to his daughter, who in turn is driven to modernize the team's operations.
James will also produce the multi-camera sitcom, alongside Jeff Lowell who will bring his experience from shows like "The Ranch," "Two and Half Men," and "Spin City" to write and executive-produce the program. James' longtime collaborator Jeff Sussman will also serve as an executive producer, together with Todd Garner and NASCAR's Matt Summers and Tim Clark.
The show is set to debut on Netflix sometime next year. Unfortunately that's all we know at the moment, but it won't be the first time that either Kevin James or automotive content will feature on the network.
The 54-year-old comic had his own comedy special on Netflix called "Kevin James: Never Give Up," and starred in productions like "True Memoirs of an International Assassin" and "Sandy Wexler" (alongside Adam Sandler). The streaming network also features original automotive-focused shows like "Hyperdrive," "Fastest Car," "Rust Valley Restorers," "Formula 1: Drive to Survive," and Jerry Seinfeld's "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee." It also has "Fast & Furious: Spy Racers," a new animated spin-off from the movie franchise, coming out later this year. All this in addition, of course, to the wealth of other shows and movies produced by other studios also available to stream on the platform.
