‘Pass Time’ Gets Green Light

Nov 7, 2007  •  Post A Comment

The Speed network has hatched a new series from its Sunday programming incubator.
The network has ordered 20 episodes of “Pass Time” for 2008, making it the first show to move from the Sunday Night “Launch Hour” block to full series status.
When it was part of “Launch Hour,” the show had been called “Name That Test & Tune.”
In “Pass Time,” contestants attempt to guess how fast 10 cars will run the quarter-mile, winning cash along the way. The show is hosted by Brett “The Big Schwag” Wagner.
Speed plans to air the show as a strip Monday through Thursday at 7:30 p.m. and 11 p.m.
“As we’ve learned from our experience producing ‘Pinks’ and ‘Pinks All Out,’ much of the enjoyment at the track is derived from guessing just how fast these cars will run the quarter-mile down the dragstrip,” said Robert Ecker, Speed’s VP of programming. “This phenomenon lends itself to a traditional game-show format that is both fun to play and fun to watch, bringing every smoke-filled burnout directly into the viewer’s living room.”
“Pass Time” is produced by High Five Entertainment, which plans to shoot the series in the 720p high-definition format.
High Five is shooting the first 10 episodes of its new series this week at Memphis Motorsports Park. The company plans to shoot the remaining episodes Nov. 30-Dec. 1 at Moroso Motorsports Park in Jupiter, Fla.
