“I’m excited to finally showcase the world I swim in by opening up the curtain on behind how we buy, sell and customize the hottest ways to travel in the world,” Whittington said of the upcoming series. “Jamie Foxx is family to me and I am so excited to take you on this journey into my world with one of my most trusted associates and dear friends.”

“We are so excited to welcome Jamie Foxx to the Discovery family, and through his show, we are getting access to a rarely-seen business of sourcing and selling luxury cars, and the fascinating entrepreneurs who fiercely compete to succeed in this competitive market,” said Nancy Daniels, chief brand officer of Discovery and Factual.

“Selling jets and cars to the biggest stars and richest people in the world, isn’t always glitz and glam, it’s a 24/7/365 job where you have to make the impossible actually possible. And when you watch this journey, you will see it all,” Whittington added. 

Discovery Channel has not yet announced the air date for “Hustle and Roll”.
