DISCOVERY CHANNEL’S ‘MOTOR MONDAYS’ GETS LARGER THAN LIFE WHEN FAT N’ FURIOUS: ROLLING THUNDER PREMIERES MONDAY, JUNE 23 AT 10PM ET/PT
- Wednesday 30 November, -0001
(New York, NY) In the Rust Belt state of Ohio speed reigns supreme – the faster the car, the fatter the profit. FAT N’ FURIOUS: ROLLING THUNDER, premiering on the Discovery Channel Monday, June 23rd at 10PM ET/PT, follows the antics of the hilarious, large-and-in-charge car junkies of Christmas Automotive as they boost business by hunting down left-for-dead cars and bringing them back to life. The series joins Motor Mondays, which has been revving up ratings for the Discovery Channel, landing the coveted #1 cable network spot for Men 25-54 delivery in 1Q 2014 (January-March 2014)...beating all other cable networks (excluding sports).
Owned and operated by Tommy Christmas, Christmas Automotive specializes in fixing up old muscle cars – helping car owners with their need for speed. With a waist size that rivals the Rust Belt itself, Tommy and his crew know all the tricks to make any car go furiously faster on the race track. From rust buckets to rare tribute cars, Tommy can restore any car and get it ready for the race track. Hefty paychecks are in store for transforming these classic cars and Tommy is the best in the business.
Helping Tommy along the way are his three best friends: Steve, Chuck and Andy – the only thing bigger than their love for race cars is their appetite. The team rebuilds these classics, gets them running and puts the pedal to the metal on the track – often for extra profit! Fixing up old cars is always challenging, but when fast equals cash, every second counts.
FAT N’ FURIOUS: ROLLING THUNDER is produced for Discovery Channel by Gurney Productions where Scott Gurney and Deirdre Gurney are Executive Producers with Rick Sasson and Ken Snow as Co-Executive Producers. Joseph Schneier is Executive Producer and Lisbeth Lozano is Associate Producer for Discovery Channel.
