Cars pile up as drivers navigate obstacles during the"Getaway Driver" show on the Discovery Channel.DiscoveryIn 2019, member of theGetaway Driverproduction team slid into Ward's Instagram DMs asking if he would be interested in the possibility of being part of a reality TV series that was premised around being a getaway driver that runs away from the police. At first, Ward thought it might be a scam but decided to go with it and responded in the affirmative.

After going through the usual stages of casting interviews and waiting months between each stage, Ward gained a spot on the show, but not before the premise for the show's plot had been changed to what it is today.The inaugural season of the show features eight episodes and 24 hot shot racers of varying backgrounds.

Baby DriverRally star Wyatt Knox stands at attention on the set of"Getaway Driver".DiscoveryBecause of the COVID-19 pandemic, filming for the series was pushed back until August 2020, then February 2021. Even when he arrived in Georgia from his home base of Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, Ward wasn't completely sure the show would be able to film. Contestants were quarantined and tested multiple times, sitting in their hotel rooms waiting for their turn.

When the filming day arrived Ward headed to the Augusta, Georgia set only to find that the shooting location was less stage and scenery, and more genuine old chemical factory on the banks of the Savannah River with minimal window dressing. Describing it, Ward told Newsweek,"They staged [the scene] a bit but all of [the competition] is very real. No one was sandbagging. No one was coached. You were there, you were there to drive and you were there to win."

All of Ward's episode, which airs August 9, was shot in one long day that started at 8 a.m. and ran until midnight. He, and the other contestant, worked alongside Rodriguez and Knox, two figures that helped shaped Ward's love of all things automotive from a young age.

Ward describes Knox, the star of many YouTube videos he has watched on repeat over the years, as"an animal in a car" saying that,"Being there and working alongside them and having them giving you props... was really cool."Michelle Rodriguez, shown in a handout photo, stars in the Discovery Channel's"Getaway Driver".

Discovery"Michelle is as cool as she has the persona of being. She was fantastic. She was far better as I expected her be," said Ward.Like the other episodes in the series, Ward's involves two tracks and three drivers all vying for the top prize. Their high intensity successes and failures play out with only one driver able to take the win.
