Syfy and Universal Cable Productions have announced Blood Drive, which is described as “a high-octane, over-the-top scripted series in the classic grindhouse movie tradition.”

Set in a near-apocalyptic future, the 13-episode series centers around LA’s last good cop, who is forced to join a twisted, gory cross-country death race — with cars powered by blood and a dangerous femme fatale partner who sees people as fuel.

Blood Drive is from executive producers John Hlavin (Underworld: Awakening, The Shield) and David Straiton (Bates Motel, Hemlock Grove), who will also direct.

“The grindhouse cinema style remains largely untapped in television. The combination of gritty action and dark humor can push the envelope in some fun and unexpected ways,” said Jeff Wachtel, the President of Universal Cable Productions. “Blood Drive has all these elements and more. We’re excited to partner with John Hlavin and David Straiton to bring this cool, action-packed series to life.”
