Gumball Rally: The TV Show?

"Gumball Rally" was a B movie about a group of people who raced cars across the country in an illegal event -- it led to all sorts of silly movies like "Cannonball Run." Take that idea, slap on some "Lost"-like mystery and yuo've got FOX's new spring series "Drive." From the press release:
DRIVE is an action-fueled drama following a diverse group of Americans driving for their lives (or the lives of their loved ones) in a sinister, cross-country road race. Some of them have been coerced into joining The Race; others have sought out The Race themselves, hearing rumors of the $32-million prize. Each has a reason to compete. And each must win.

Among the varied racers are a man thrust into The Race in an effort to find his missing wife; a single mother competing under great strain ... or possibly something much more strange; a buttoned-down scientist and his rebellious 15-year-old daughter; two brothers in a stolen, pimped-out Caddy that carries secrets of its own; and a gorgeous and mysterious female stowaway who may well hold the key to the secrets of The Race.
Boy, does that sound ridiculous.
