Audible has commissioned Studio71 US to produce a new scripted audio series called Vroom Vroom.
The announcement comes as part of a new programming slate of scripted Audible Originals, set to debut this summer.
Vroom Vroom, produced by Audible and Studio71 US, is a scripted comedy about the high-speed pursuit of the American dream, written by award-winning playwright and screenwriter Josh Koenigsberg (High Fidelity, Orange is the New Black).
The series stars Andy Richter (Conan), Yvette Nicole Brown (Community), John DiMaggio (Adventure Time, Futurama), Rick Gonzalez (Arrow), Lucy DeVito (Deadbeat), Mic Daily (Accepted) and Azhar Khan (Mr. Robot).
In Vroom Vroom, when a used Ford dealership in upstate New York finds out its local rival, Wild Ron, is trying to put it out of business, the dealership has one week to band together to keep its business alive.
Studio71 is a pioneer in podcast production and distribution, with 70+ shows in the US alone, generating over 18 million monthly streams.
Studio71 UK and Germany are also significant podcast producers, with Studio71 UK recently announcing new podcast Slay in Your Lane: The Podcast from multi-award-winning authors Yomi Adegoke and Elizabeth Uviebinené; and Studio71 Germany announcing in April the production of three podcasts for new German-speaking audio-on-demand platform Fyeo (For Your Ears Only).
