Jay Leno back in gear, lands CNBC show
Jay Leno is revving his engine and returning to television. CNBC has announced that the former Tonight Show star will host Jay Leno’s Garage, based on the comedian’s Emmy-winning web series. In August, Leno and CNBC collaborated on a one-hour special, Jay Leno’s Garage: The Ultimate Car Week. The new show will premiere in 2015.
“This show will be about anything that rolls, explodes and makes noise,” said Leno, in a statement. “We hope to highlight the passion and the stories behind the men and women who made the automobile the greatest invention of the 20th century.”
“From classics to supercars, restoration projects to road tests, Jay Leno’s Garage is the place where Jay shares his passion for all things automotive, including best investments, valuations and the inner workings of the car collector’s market,” CNBC said in its release.
