We have some exciting news to share: Speed channel will begin airing Autoblog’s The List as its own half-hour television show, beginning February 5th at 10:30 PM EST and PST. The car-centric cable channel will also air half-hour episodes of our sister show, Translogic, at 10:00 PM EST and PST. Consider it the AOL Autos/Autoblog Power Hour on Speed.
We were very honored many months ago when Speed approached us about converting The List into a TV show, and couldn’t be happier that its premiere, along with that of Translogic, is less than a week away. After next week’s premiere, new episodes will air every Tuesday at the same time each week.
If you’ve been watching the show on Autoblog, these initial half-hour episodes of The List on Speed might be ones you’ve already seen, since the first season of the show as it appeared on the website has been deftly converted into episodes that will work on the small screen. Partnerships like this, however, as well as the show’s new sponsor, Allstate, have allowed us to start shooting new episodes for the second season, all of which will debut here on Autoblog first. In fact, Jessi and Patrick are in Alaska checking off a list item as we speak.
It’s great recognition for us and the show’s producers at AOL Studios that Speed saw something special in The List and Translogic (this is the first time ever that AOL’s premium original video content will be televised), and we’re so excited to share this series that we had so much fun making with an entirely new audience. Be sure to check out the premiere this Tuesday, February 5 at 10:30 PM EST/PST!
