Roxane Hayward plays Mimi Cox in upcoming NBC/Syfy series Blood Drive.
The series hails from executive producers John Hlavin (‘Underworld: Awakening’) and David Straiton (‘Bates Motel’), and is described as a high-octane story set in a near-apocalyptic future centered on Los Angeles’ last good cop who must join a twisted and bloody cross-country death race that includes cars powered by blood, and a dangerous female character who sees people as little more than fuel.
From Universal Cable Productions, Blood Drive was penned by writer James Roland. John Hlavin (Underworld: Awakening) and David Straiton (Bates Motel) will exec produce and the latter will also direct. Fredrik Malmberg (Conan the Barbarian) and Mark Wheeler will serve as producers, and Roland is attached as a supervising producer.
“This highly stylized roller coaster ride is a throwback to 1970s grindhouse cinema. With its fast-paced thrills and indie feel, Blood Drive will make an exciting and edgy addition to Syfy’s growing slate of original scripted series,” said Syfy president Dave Howe.
Added UCP president Jeff Wachtel, “The grindhouse cinema style remains largely untapped in television. The combination of gritty action and dark humor can push the envelope in some fun and unexpected ways.”Overview
