NEW SERIES PREMIERES
TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 3 AT 10PM ET/PT ON HISTORY®
New York, NY – August 5, 2013 – HISTORY® presents the brand new original series WE’RE THE FUGAWIS, a show which follows the hilarious misadventures of The Fugawis, an Upstate New York motorcycle club comprised of life-long best friends. The 10-episode half-hour series premieres Tuesday, September 3 at 10PM ET/PT with back-to-back episodes.
Viewers will go along for the ride as buddies “Mudflap,” “Medicine Man, “ “Wise One,” “Tommy Gunz,” “Holeshot,” “Old Timer” and the rest of the Fugawi motorcycle club live life with a freedom and fraternity that many guys can only dream of. In an age when everyone is seeking to strike the perfect work-life balance, this group of bikers has somehow figured it out. Members of the club include expert builders, plumbers, electricians and general contractors, so when they’re not out in the wind on the open road they’re tackling construction projects of all shapes and sizes to earn a living.
The Fugawis proudly continue the tradition of American motorcycle clubs that started in the years after WWII. For this group of lifelong buddies – freedom is all about adventure, camaraderie and getting to work and play with your best friends.
WE’RE THE FUGAWIS is produced for HISTORY by New Wave Entertainment with Todd Pellegrino, Peter Iannuccilli and Joe DeVito serving as executive producers. Executive Producers for HISTORY are Matthew Ginsburg and Zachary Behr.
