1977 marked a special year for car lovers, as millions, who watched the 'Trans-Am' race unfold across the silver screen, fell in love with the muscle car. While American muscle cars were all the rage at the time, their popularity reached its zenith a long time ago, with dwindling interest eventually resulting in many brands running out of business.

However, entrepreneurial brothers Scott and Todd Warmack have been on a quest to see that elusive popularity returns to the screen. The two have risked everything to acquire the exclusive rights to the Trans-Am brand to "pioneer a new era of American muscle car."

An official description reads, "Together, the Warmack brothers embark on a forward-looking journey, fueled by nostalgia, to restore and recreate an American staple while forging a reputation in the competitive automotive industry in Discovery’s all-new series 'Trans-Am.'"  

The Trans-Am was Americans' muscle car of choice for decades, but the automotive icon soon fell out of favor, and then into oblivion. Scott and Todd are both car savants and have invested significantly in their attempts to resurrect the legendary brand from extinction.

Now, they are giving the green light to the Trans-Am legacy by "restoring old muscle cars and building new ones to breathe life back into American muscle and put the beloved car back on the pavement." The pair will be operating out of production facilities Trans-Am Depot and Trans-Am Worldwide alongside other talented car aficionados to re-engineer and meticulously craft the classic cars from the inside out.

'Trans-Am' asks, "The Warmack vision is larger than life, and there are few boundaries that can’t be pushed, but can a few guys from the panhandle of Florida pull off the restoration of a lifetime?" 

The series was created by Coast West Entertainment and produced for Discovery Channel by FishBowl Worldwide Media. For Coast West Entertainment, Richard Cohen and Lucia Gervino are executive producers. For FishBowl Worldwide Media, executive producers are Vin Di Bona, Gretchen Morning and Emi Macuaga, with Pascal Franchot serving as co-executive producer. For Discovery, Kyle Wheeler is executive producer, and Brian Peterson is the producer. 

'Trans-Am' will premiere on Discovery on Tuesday, October 2, at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
