Motor City Masters (10 x 60′) – Fasten your seatbelt. The search is on for America’s next great car designer. Hosted by Brooke Burns (Baywatch, Melrose Place), the series brings together 10 experienced designers, with various specialties and backgrounds, all of whom share a passion for car design. In each episode, the contestants will have the ambitious task of creating new, fully functional (though not street legal) concept cars based on a theme that will showcase the each competitor’s unique personality.
Challenges explore various aspects of design, inside and out. The designs will be judged by Jean Jennings, president and editor in chief of Automobile Magazine and internationally renowned car designer Harald Belker. They are joined each week by a special celebrity guest judge. Competitors are judged on their creativity, execution and forward-thinking design, among other criteria. The field is narrowed with each elimination challenge until only the top two designers remain. These two competitors face off in front of Chevrolet’s world-class car design experts, after which only one designer is crowned “The Next Great Car Designer.” The winner of Motor City Masters receives a brand new 2014 Camaro Z28 and $100,000 cash. The winner is also named a Brand Ambassador, with the opportunity to showcase his/her designs at major auto show exhibitions.
