DISCOVERY CHANNEL’S FAT N FURIOUS: ROLLING THUNDER IS BACK FOR A SECOND BITE ON MONDAY, JANUARY 26 AT 10PM ET/PT
(New York, NY) The boys of Christmas automotive are back, with faster cars and bigger appetites. These large-and-in-charge car junkies of Christmas Automotive continue to boost business by hunting down left-for-dead cars and bringing them back to life. The series returns to 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 4Q 2014 (October-December 2014)…beating all other cable networks (excluding sports).
Owned and operated by Tommy Christmas, Christmas Automotive helps car owners with their need for speed. With business bigger than ever before, the gang is moving to a larger shop to keep up with demand. Tommy, along with his three best friends: Steve, Chuck and Andy, welcome a new generation of Christmas staff – Tommy’s son and daughter, Jess and Nick, to rebuild these classic muscle cars and put the pedal to the metal on the track. Fixing up old cars is always challenging, but the faster the car, the fatter the pay check.
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. In the season premiere, Tommy and crew transform a ‘69 Fairlane into a Cobra Fairlane for a client whose dad passed away while they were building it. They also fix up a ’68 Firebird for an overweight owner trying to claim bragging rights in a sibling rivalry with his brother.
