Nathan Fillion (Serenity, Firefly, Buffy) takes the steering wheel in Fox TV's hot new mid-season drama series, Drive.

Fillion plays landscaper Alex Tully, who is persuaded to join an illegal underground race across America, after his wife is abducted. (Fillion replaces Ivan Sergei, who played the role in the show's pilot).

The high-octane show uses cutting-edge technology to create virtual environments as the cars race around around the United States. Drive incorporates both live-action vehicle work and green screen stage work, to create an exciting and addictive fast-paced show.
