TV show description:
A gory, dystopian sci-fi drama in the “grindhouse” tradition, the Blood Drive TV show centers on Arthur Bailey (Ritchson), one of the last upright cops in Los Angeles. Now that water and oil are in short supply, and climate change has driven the temperature to 115 degrees in the shade, its a whole new, horrid world.
With crime at an unimaginable all-time high, only the most deplorable offenders are brought to justice. Arthur — a street-smart yet squeaky clean member of a decidedly corrupt force — is one of the few remaining good men in the world.
Arthur is forced to enter the Blood Drive, an underground, cross-country death race in cars which run on blood. He partners with a sweet looking “femme fatale” Grace D’Argento (Ochoa) who will do anything — kill anyone — to win. Grace is in the race for the cash prize, so she can save her sister and change their lives.
Once a kind-hearted woman, Grace has, for her sister’s sake, embraced the grizzly routine of grinding up humans and feeding them into her blood engine. Now a “stone cold killer,” Grace is amused by Arthur’s “Boy Scout” ways and frequently calls him “Ken Doll.”
Blood Drive mastermind Julian Slink (Cunningham) is evil incarnate. A natural showman who craves the limelight, Slink never shies away from sinking his competition, even if he must kill them to shine.
A synthetic creation of Heart Industries, Aki (Corlett) is a cool, competent killer, just as she has been programmed to be.
When Arthur enters Blood Drive, his partner Christopher (Dominique) embarks on an investigation into his disappearance. Arthur had always helped Chris avoid the murky depths of the corrupt LAPD. Now in search of his missing partner, Chris is shocked by the insanity he’s facing. One question remains: will it corrupt him, too?
