Funkmaster Flex’s love for all things auto-related will take centers stage during a new television show set to launch on Spike TV.
Flex’s latest TV show is set to premiere in April and is titled Fast Machines with Funkmaster Flex.
Spike TV will air Flex’s new original half-hour series during the network’s highly rated automobile programming block, “The PowerBlock.”
The series, which is produced by Emmy-nominated producer Monica Taylor (Live with Regis and Kelly), features Funk Master Flex customizing and modifying various cars, from old to new, from his garage in the Bronx.
A number of celebrities are featured in the 12-episode series, including 50 Cent, LL Cool J, T-Pain, Fat Joe, Jim Jones, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Danica Patrick, Terrell Owens, Jermaine Dupri and others.
Spike TV was elated to have Funkmaster Flex back on the network which originally hosted Flex’s popular series Ride With Funkmaster Flex.
The series earned high ratings amongst the male 18-34 viewing audience on Spike TV from 2003-2005.
“We knew Flex would find his way back to his true television home, Spike TV, and we are thrilled to have the true undisputed king of car customizations back where he belongs,” said Kevin Kay, president, Spike TV.
Funkmaster Flex is no stranger to the automotive world, having hosted hits shows like All Muscle with Funkmaster Flex and Cars Wars, on ESPN.
Both shows were also broadcast internationally via the Kenya Television Network (African) and Channel V (Australia).
Fast Machines with Funkmaster Flex is set to debut on Sunday, April 5 at 10:30am ET/PT on Spike TV. **To get the latest AllHipHop News follow us on twitter @ twitter.com/ahhnews**
