(Silver Spring, Md.) It’s a bike club. It’s a brotherhood. It’s THE DEVILS RIDE premiering Tuesday, May 8 after DEADLIEST CATCH at 10pm e/p on Discovery. For the first time Discovery goes inside the world of motorcycle clubs with the members of San Diego’s Laffing Devils.

THE DEVILS RIDE sports a diverse crew but one bonded by a commitment to each other and the club. Meet Laffing Devils president Gipsy, who must balance the club’s growing ranks with pressure from older members to maintain the status quo. An ex-Marine who served in Iraq, Gipsy credits the club for helping him deal with the emotional scars of war. Then there’s club VP, Billy the Kid, who waits in the wings wondering if he’ll have the chance to lead the Laffing Devils. And younger member Snubz breaks all the biker stereotypes with his degree in finance and a full time corporate job.

 

THE DEVILS RIDE finds the Laffing Devils not only in open conflict internally but also at risk of losing their homebase. The Laffing Devils’ unofficial headquarters is the auto body shop owned by fellow member Hawkster but police pressure might force the club to find a new home. Moving is going to cost the club money so Gipsy seeks out security work for the Laffing Devils guarding a liquor store in a very dangerous part of town. Will their new responsibilities pit the club against one another?

 

THE DEVILS RIDE also covers what would-be members must do to prove themselves to the club before they can be “patched in.” In order to earn his spot, prospect Charles is out on an official club task of protecting some of the club’s wives and girlfriends, or “Ol’ Ladies” on a night out. When a pushy photographer gets too close for comfort, blood boils and the situation gets physical. Will Charles’ actions protecting the women earn him the respect of the young blood and, more importantly, earn him his cut?

THE DEVILS RIDE is produced for Discovery Channel Bischoff Hervey Entertainment. Eric Bischoff and Jason Hervey are Executive Producers. For Discovery Channel, David Pritikin is Executive Producer.

    I mentioned a show like this to discovery.about ten years ago , going inside the outlaw motorcycle world and nobody thought it would work and now a show is coming out …I knew it would be a hit ten years ago

    Because any club worth their cut wouldn’t be making a Discovery channel show. They do have one thing right though, any biker and legit MC will be “laffing” at them.

  • mark

    I’m willing to bet they are not a 1% club, it seems as if everyone wants in on the biker lifestyle that dont ride. I love hearing guys talk about wanting to be a outlaw biker or bike builder and they have never owned or riden in their life or they ride with a brand new cut and a full face helmet because its the cool thing to do after they buy their brand new sporty!

  • juices girl

    RIP Juice, the love of my life.

  • TakenbyBRY

    Cant wait to see the show. RIP JUICE…you loved my girl and Im so sorry you had to leve her so soon.

  • Paco

    So real bikers don’t wear full-face helmets? Come down to South Texas and tell a local %1 Bandito he’s not a real biker and see what happens.

  • Rock

    This show is a joke and a member working corporate job so if im a greeter for wal-mart makes me work a corporate job to the younger ine works for target.

    This is a San Diego, Cal. based club that fronts like they are 1%ers. They wear the Red for obvious reasons. I guess this channel will put anyone on tv to get ratings, cause I don’t think a real 1%er club would do it. Then again there is the black and white nation…

  • mike kraski

    Another reality show, this time bikers. It should be great. Bikers are so sexy. Big, sweaty I just want to eat em up! Can’t wait to see the show.

  • a rodriguez

    Frankv said it right. “it seems as if everyone wants in on the biker lifestyle that dont ride.” Just like OCC and PJD.
