Robert Downey Jr. To Host MAX Original ‘Downey’s Dream Cars’

MAX, the streaming service formally known as HBO Max, is bringing us a new original series featuring ‘Iron Man’ actor Robert Downey, Jr. The celebrity will host a new series all about that American pass time, driving with ‘Downey’s Dream Cars.’ Besides hosting, Downey will also executive produce along with his wife Susan Downey, and Emily Barclay Ford.

Warner Bros. Discovery explained in a statement, “The Max Original docuseries DOWNEY’S DREAM CARS debuts with two episodes THURSDAY, JUNE 22 on Max, with two new episodes debuting each Thursday leading up to the final two episodes on July 6. The official trailer was revealed exclusively during Warner Bros. Discovery’s Upfront presentation in New York today.”

The show will feature Downey working on classic muscle cars while updating them with equipment that will allegedly be better for the environment.

Downey said in a press release, “We are what we drive, and having amassed a formidable collection of classic cars over the years, I was a petrol spewing mess. And a hypocrite, as I’d founded the Footprint Coalition in 2019 to scale technologies that mitigate climate change. Fortunately, I’m a bit of a dreamer. The last 3 years have been an experiment in hope, as I engaged the best and brightest minds to evaluate, educate, elevate, and decarbonize these vehicles in a way that demonstrates the limitless potential of creative problem solving.”

‘The Judge’ actor continued, “It was a huge challenge and an enlightening journey. It’s also just fun to watch, and for that, I must credit my kids, my wife and boss Susan, Team Downey, Boat Rocker’s Matador Content, and of course, Max and Warner Bros. Discovery. Thanks for supporting what, at times, seemed a blurry vision, but ultimately confirmed the myriad ways we can join hands and create a sustainable future.”

MAX describes the show’s synopsis as follows, “Robert Downey Jr. loves restoring classic cars. But he’s also become dedicated to fighting climate change. So he’s bringing his beloved old cars into the future, making them faster, more powerful, and more efficient while keeping their souls intact.” strives to be an apolitical, balanced and based pop culture news outlet.
