Fans of the quickly canceled Fox serial "Drive" haven't had any luck getting the network to tell them where the show would have gone next if it hadn't been pulled. Fox was supposed to air the remaining two produced episodes on July 4, then moved the date to July 13, and now has decided against airing them at all — though they're likely to show up online eventually.
Meanwhile, the folks over at DriveFans decided to take matters into their own hands, asking executive producers Tim Minear and Craig Silverstein what they had in mind for the remainder of the series. (Thanks to TV Squad for the tip.) Minear and Silverstein didn't reveal who would have won the race, but they did supply a lot of other interesting tidbits, including:
- Each character would have had a different race sponsor, each with different motivations — some benevolent, some not. Wendy's sponsors would have been a couple who discovered they adopted Wendy's first child, whom she thought was dead. Half-brothers Winston and Sean would have learned that their father was sponsoring Winston, but a family friend was actually trying to use the race to take out the whole family and take over their business.
- Ivy and Wendy would have turned into a Thelma-and-Louise-style team, ultimately rescuing Wendy's son, Sam, and continuing to race with Sam along. Ivy later would have sacrificed herself for Sam.
- There likely would have been at least one hookup: Rob and Leigh.
