E4 has commissioned Carjackers, an all-new makeover series with a difference. The Carjackers are a team of some of Britain’s best mechanics and modifiers who in each episode will be tasked with secretly transforming run-of-the-mill motors into head-turning character cars.
The modifiers will learn more about the car owner’s likes and dislikes from their family and friends, before having just days to totally transform the vehicle at the pop-up Carjackers garage. If the owner doesn’t like his or her new-look set of wheels, the Carjackers will have to undo their work and return the vehicle as they found it.
The 20 x 30’series is commissioned for E4 by Formats Commissioning Editor Jilly Pearce and Head of Formats Dom Bird. The series is executive produced by Karl Warner and Meredith Chambers for Electric Ray.
Dom Bird comments “I’m looking forward to the Carjackers delighting both our E4 audience and some unsuspecting car owners with their unique set of skills. After all, who wouldn’t want their boring old car turned into a giant hot dog?”
Karl Warner comments: “With jaw-dropping makeovers and a larger than life cast, Carjackers will be a comedy show first and a car show second – it’s ‘changing vrooms’ for the E4 generation.”
