The original Driver game, which first dropped in 1999 on PlayStation, centers undercover agent and ex-race car driver, John Tanner, whose mission is to take down the local crime syndicate. The following Driver 2 and Driver 3 games, released in 2000 and 2004, followed Tanner as he took his crime-fighting across the globe to Miami, Rio de Janeiro, Istanbul and more.
Ubisoft Film & Television and Binge's Allan Ungar and Vincent Talenti produce the series. Executive producers are Ubisoft Film & Television's Jason Altman, Danielle Kreinik and Genevieve Jones.
