Paramount's Insurge Pictures and Machinima today announced a partnership on a brand new web series called "Chop Shop. Created by Josh Baizer and Marshall Johnson ("Mortal Kombat: Legacy"), and produced by the Bandito Brothers (Act of Valor), former Red Wagon Exec Josh Weinstock, and Elliott Lester (Blitz), "Chop Shop" is an epic, edge-of-your-seat action series that explores the world of underground black market car theft.

Directed by Elliott Lester, "Chop Shop" is said to feature intense heists and white-knuckled car chases, based in the gritty streets of Los Angeles. It follows the story of two professional car thieves who find their close friendship tested, and their loyalties pushed to the limit when one ultimately betrays the other.

Machinima will be the exclusive distributor of the Paramount Insurge series through their cross platform networks including YouTube, Mobile (iPhone, Android, etc), and Xbox app, amongst others.

"Machinima is a true leader in the next generation of video entertainment, and we are thrilled to partner with them on ‘Chop Shop,'” said Amy Powell, President of Insurge Pictures. "Our enormously talented creative team has come up with an exciting new digital series which thanks to Machinima's incredible reach, will be available across a wide variety of platforms for the audience to sit back and enjoy wherever they may be."

"As Machinima continues to break new ground in content development, creation, and distribution, this partnership is a testament of our ongoing pursuit to deliver our fans exactly what they want,” said Aaron DeBevoise, EVP of Network Programming at Machinima.”Insurge has outdone itself with 'Chop Shop.' Machinima has some really creative plans for introducing this series to our audience, prepare to be blown away.”

"Chop Shop" will debut in early 2014.
