U.S. net History has turned to Quebec producer Zone3 as it enters the English language TV market for the latest addition to its hit-driven line-up.

Montreal indie Zone3, best known for Quebecois versions of Cash Cab and Family Feud, is putting the finishing touches to Gods, Guns & Automobiles, a half-hour series for the U.S. channel about a throw-back car dealership in the American heartland.

The reality show follows Mark Muller and his brother, Chicago radio personality Erich ‘Mancow’ Muller, as they run Max Motors in Butler, Missouri. When the Mullers aren’t blowing up cars or staging a fake UFO landing to drive sales, they may be giving a needy farmer a deal so he can drive off the lot with a car.

Austin Reading is serving as showrunner.

God, Guns & Automobiles follows History enlisting other Canadian indies to make shows, with Cineflix Media making American Pickers and coproducer Take 5 Productions working on Vikings.

Michael Kronish, Isabelle Anouk Bourduas and Michel Bissonnette are the executive producers for Zone3, which is also producing Match Game for the Comedy Network. Zone3 also produces My Rona Home for CityTV in Canada and Grin and Build It for W Network.

Tim Healy will executive produce for History as God, Guns & Automobiles gets set to bow on July 8.
