Speed Channel Renews Holigan Racing’s The Reality of SpeedMonday, November 21, 2005 | 8:49 AM
SUPERCROSS LIFESTYLE PROGRAM FOLLOWS TEAM BOOKOO
SPEED Channel will renew the popular Supercross documentary reality series The Reality of SPEED for 2006, positioning it as complementary programming to the network’s recent acquisition of the Amp'd Mobile AMA Supercross Series.
"We were pleased by the strong performance of The Reality of Speed throughout its debut season on SPEED,” said Robert Ecker, SPEED VP of Programming. “With our subsequent acquisition of the television rights to both classes of the AMA Supercross Series, it made perfect sense to extend the program for a second season."
New episodes of The Reality of SPEED, which takes viewers behind the curtain at Holigan Racing’s Team BooKoo, will begin in February.
"We are ecstatic to be working with SPEED Channel and Clear Channel Entertainment for another season of The Reality of Speed," said series producer and team owner Michael Holigan. "This past season was great, and with the Supercross race broadcasts moving to SPEED this season, it will be even bigger and better."
SPEED’s coverage of AMA Supercross begins Dec. 4 at 6 p.m. ET from Toronto.
