According to TVInsider, Cuban Chrome will explore the island nation’s car culture and the people who maintain its classic cars. US vehicles haven’t been imported to Cuba since the embargo began in 1960 – the embargo also applies to parts. Executive producer Craig Piligian says Cuban Chrome was in the works long before President Obama announced in December that certain restrictions on travel and commerce with Cuba would be lifted.
Advertised as the first U.S. TV series to be shot entirely on location in Cuba, Cuban Chrome will debut at 10 PM Monday, July 13 and will be simulcast in English on Discovery Channel and in Spanish on Discovery en Espanol.
