VELOCITY GOES FULL THROTTLE WITH ITS ALL-NEW SLATE OF PROGRAMMING FOR THE UPFRONT 2012-2013 SEASON

Velocity's 2012-2013 Upfront Highlighted by Patrick Dempsey's ROAD TO LEMANS and the Return of OVERHAULIN'

(New York, NY) - Velocity, Discovery Communications' network for the upscale male audience, today announced its 2012-2013 Upfront programming slate. Seven months after its on-air launch, Velocity announced its plans to roll out more than 250 premiere hours between fourth quarter 2012 and third quarter 2013, representing the best of adventure, history, sports, travel and vehicle programming.

"Ever since launch, Velocity has been riding a huge wave of momentum, and our new slate of programming is sure to keep the network surging ahead," said Bob Scanlon, senior vice president of Velocity. "Our audience expects the absolute best content, experts and production values-and that's precisely what we are going to continue delivering to them."

Headlining the slate is the adrenaline-packed television event ROAD TO LEMANS, which follows Patrick Dempsey as he serves as both owner and driver for an auto racing team tackling the legendary 24 Hours of LeMans-the world's oldest automotive endurance race. Dempsey will serve as both the executive producer and on-air focus for the four-part docu-series that will premiere on Velocity in 2013.

Late 2012 will mark the return of the hugely popular OVERHAULIN' to television. Hosted by master restorer and fabricator Chip Foose, the new season of OVERHAULIN' will focus on the power of car builds to help those in need. Additional titles featured in the slate include new seasons of highly rated fan favorites INSIDE WEST COAST CUSTOMS, WHEELER DEALERS and CHASING CARS.
