"Monster Garage" rebuilt for Motor City

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Discovery Channel is bringing back its hit "Monster Garage," relocating the production to Detroit and dubbing the series "MG: Motor City." It will premiere in the fall.

The show will feature a pair of top-notch bike designers and builders leading a team of fabricators, mechanics and welders who, with only seven days and $3,000, have to turn average vehicles into outrageous contraptions of fantasy and function.

The first episode in the new "MG: Motor City" will feature an antique Model T being transformed into a "gasser," a term coined in the 1950s when people modified their cars.

Thom Beers, creator/executive producer of the original, Southern California-set "Monster Garage" series, which ran on Discovery Channel from 2002 to 2006 and was hosted by Jesse James, is back as an executive producer of the new series alongside Tom McMahon. For Discovery Channel, Tim Pastore is executive producer.
