Esquire Network has renewed “Car Matchmaker” for a third season. Car aficionado and host Spike Feresten is set to return when the new season premieres Wednesday, June 22, at 9 p.m. with 16 half-hour episodes.
Guests for the upcoming episodes include Jerry Seinfeld, Sports Illustrated model Genevieve Morton, plus Keanu Reeves and Gard Hollinger, co-founders of Arch Motorcycle Company.
“Car Matchmaker” follows Feresten as he meets with people in need of a vehicle, gets to know their personalities and preferences and then finds three different options perfectly suited to the buyer — and after taking the ultimate test drive, the buyer selects his or her favorite vehicle.
The new season will see Feresten taking on an entirely new set of challenges as he draws upon his two decades of knowledge and expertise to find the perfect match for his clients, who include a couple looking to live completely off the grid for a year, an art director who wants a motorcycle with a sidecar for his best friend Lily the bulldog and a retired NFL player who wants a luxury lifestyle, but is now “ballin’ on a budget.” The vehicles included this round include a 1968 Chevrolet Camaro, the new Lamborghini RWD Huracan, a classic 1978 Toyota FJ40 and a Ferrari 488 GTB.
Critical Content produces “Car Matchmaker” with Tom Forman and Ellen Rakieten exec producing, along with Feresten.
Known for its mostly unscripted programming geared toward an upscale male audience, Esquire Network also renewed its first scripted series, “Spotless,” earlier this week.
