BBC Three has announced a new televised competition loosely inspired by the Fast and the Furious franchise, but with souped-up tractors instead. Farmers and their fancy farming equipment will race against one another for what a press release calls national bragging rights. Yee-haw!
The new series will be called the Fast and the Farm(ish) and will air in the coming months, aiming to offer a “glimpse into the lives of young farmers, in an entertaining new competitive series which showcases tractor-driving talent.” The pilot represents a collaboration between BBC Three and BBC Northern Ireland and was produced by Alleycats. It was received well enough to prompt studio bosses to commission a full season.
As per the press release, each new episode will see two teams up against each other, including challenges that will put them and their tractors to the test. The format will be similar to other programming, including initial rounds, semis, and a grand final in which the winner will be declared.
No other details are available as of the time of press. An air date is yet to be announced
