Popular Car Talk radio show headed for television
LOS ANGELES |
LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - "Car Talk," a popular car advice talk radio program hosted by mechanics Click and Clack, is being made into an animated television show, the Public Broadcasting Service said on Wednesday.
The show will launch with ten, 30-minute prime-time episodes in summer 2008 and will be named with the help of fans.
The radio version of Car Talk is hosted by Tom and Ray Magliozzi -- known on the show as Click and Clack. The brothers offer comic advice to callers' car-related questions.
The TV show will "take off where the radio series ends," showing what the hosts do off-air, said the statement.
This is the second public radio program to jump to television in recent months. In March, renowned radio personality Ira Glass announced he was going to do a television version of his show, "This American Life."
