Plot Synopsis

Set in a near-apocalyptic future, BLOOD DRIVE is a one-hour series that is a throwback to 1970s grindhouse cinema, centering on Arthur Bailey, Los Angeles' last good cop, who is forced to join a twisted, gory cross-country death race -- with cars powered by blood -- and is partnered with Grace d'Argento, a dangerous femme fatale who sees people as fuel. It's the near future in 1999 in Los Angeles, where water is a scarce as oil, and climate change keeps the temperature at a cool 115 in the shade. It's a place where crime is so rampant that only the worst violence is punished, and where Arthur runs afoul of the dirtiest and meanest underground car rally in the world, Blood Drive. The master of ceremonies is a vaudevillian nightmare, the drivers are homicidal deviants, and the cars run on human blood. When Arthur gets thrown into the Blood Drive and forced to partner with Grace -- who will kill (literally) to win -- he must embrace the brutal, warrior lurking deep inside. And hopefully he'll get Grace to stop calling him Ken doll. Grace could be sucking a lollipop and looking sweet as cherry-pie one moment and feeding you into her blood engine the next. Driven to save her sister, Grace enters the Blood Drive for the big cash prize that will change both their lives. But after grinding up bad men for a few months, her once sweet heart is now buried in the chest of a stone-cold killer. While Arthur and Grace drive together, they are pursued by Chris, Arthur's former partner on the force. Chris was able to avoid the underbelly of the L.A. police force, but after Arthur gets pulled into the Blood Drive, the investigation into Arthur's whereabouts leads Chris on the most deranged, bat-sh*t crazy case of his life. Will one of L.A.'s last upstanding cops finally turn to the dark side? The ringleader of the Blood Drive is Julian Slink, the races' twisted vaudevillian ringleader and frontman. Julian is an enema of mischief and sin. Like any good showman, Slink lives for the spotlight, and he would do anything for the sake of entertainment, especially if it means killing off the competition. He also loves a good show-tune. Alos, there's Aki, a model of pleasure and pain. As a synthetic creation of Heart Industries, she has learned to murder with calm, binary efficiency. Don't look upon Aki with moral judgement, though -- she's not bad; she's just programmed that way.
On Wednesday, September 6, 2017 at 10pm ET/PT, Syfy premiered "Finish Line," the season finale of BLOOD DRIVE. Arthur, Grace, and Slink attack Heart Enterprises, but their deepest fears are waiting for them.
