Where does Tyler Skaggs go when he needs a new car? For his next set of wheels, at least, he will turn to “Car Matchmaker.” The Los Angeles Angels pitcher will be a guest star on the Esquire Network series in the upcoming third season.
The 16-episode season will begin June 22 at 9 p.m. EDT. The new episodes will feature a bunch of guest stars, including iconic comedian Jerry Seinfeld as well as "The Matrix" star Keanu Reeves, and, of course, some hot new rides.
Hosted by former “Seinfeld” writer Spike Feresten, each episode of the series highlights a new client, often a celebrity, and digs deep into their personality and background to figure out the perfect set of wheels to pair with them. At the end of the episode, the client picks from three cars that Feresten and the show’s experts have chosen based on their research.
In Season 3, the clients will include Seinfeld, Skaggs, actress Karrueche Tran, and even a Sports Illustrated swimsuit model. Seinfeld will take a break from his own car-related web series, “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee,” to meet a potential buyer of his prized 1974 Porsche 911 Carrera 3.0 IROC RSR. Feresten will also visit with Keanu Reeves to see his Arch Motorcycle Company’s new KRGT-1 motorcycle.
There will be plenty of noncelebrity challenges for Feresten as well, including a couple looking to live off the grid for a year, an art director who wants a motorcycle with a sidecar for his bulldog and a retired NFL player who wants a classy ride on a budget. Cars to be featured this season include a 1968 Chevrolet Camaro, the new Lamborghini RWD Huracan, a 1978 Toyota FJ40 and a Ferrari 488 GTB.
