So we found this 10-minute “sizzle reel” for a reality TV show pilot called, “Shifters USA”. The show follows a group of southern stick shift drag racers as they compete at Farmington Dragway in North Carolina. Now, normally you’d read the words “reality show pilot” and shoot holes in your computer with a pistol, but we strongly recommend against that. Not because you’ll like this show, but because you won’t be able to read all the goodness BangShift has to offer each day.
There’s some campy stuff in here, but overall we think that the show is decent and the premise for the climax of the story has a pretty good premise behind it. Perhaps we’re just blinded by all of the cool gear jamming stick shift drag cars that we see during the 10-minute pilot, but there’s a lot worst crap on TV than this show currently.
Press play below, meet the characters, watch some racing, pay attention to the story line, and tell us what you think! Does this show suck or is it a good watch? Would you watch it every week? Is there anything cooler than a wheelstanding ’55 Chevy with a 4-gear in it? These are all questions that need answers!
