'Furious' Star Michelle Rodriguez to Host Yahoo Autos Series

Michelle Rodriguez continues to prove she’s got serious car cred. The actress, who has appeared in four Fast and Furious movies, including the record-breaking latest installment, Furious 7, will host Riding Shotgun With Michelle Rodriguez, a new series that will premiere on Yahoo Autos. The announcement was made this evening during Yahoo’s star-studded panel at NewFronts in New York City.

Rodriguez will be “jumping behind the wheel and into the driver’s seat to put the fastest cars to the test as she gears down and weighs in on their performance,” according to a release issued by Yahoo. She will also executive produce the show, which will be co-produced by Untitled Matador Content.

Riding Shotgun was one of 18 new programs announced by Yahoo during a panel hosted by Community star Joel McHale. Other shows also included Ultimate DJ, an EDM competition produced by Simon Cowell, and I Am Naomi, starring Naomi Campbell.
