Amazon has greenlit a series from Hoonigan Media Machine, a motorsports lifestyle brand, slated to air exclusively on Amazon’s video subscription service Prime.
The Gymkhana Files (pictured) chronicles the making of Gymkhana 10, the 10th installment of Hoonigan co-founder Ken Block’s popular Gymkhana Film motosport series. A motosports star and entrepreneur, Block is also a professional rally driver with Hoonigan Racing Divisions.
The eight-episode series was created by Block, Brian Scotto and Gil Marsden, all of whom also serve as executive producers. Marsden will additionally serve as showrunner.
“The inner workings of the wildly popular Gymkhana film series have long been a mystery to its large and rabid fan base,” said newly appointed Amazon Originals head of unscripted Heather Schuster, in a statement.
