"FAST N' LOUD" ROARS BACK TO DISCOVERY WITH BRAND-NEW EPISODES ON MONDAY, OCTOBER 16th
Rev up your engines car fans! Hot-rod hunter Richard Rawlings and his team of Monkeys are back for a bold new era at Gas Monkey Garage - and this season they go bigger and badder than ever before with all-new episodes of FAST N' LOUD premiering Monday, October 16th at 10PM ET/PT on Discovery. The series is produced by Craig Piligian's Pilgrim Media Group.
With Aaron Kaufman's departure at the end of last season, Richard and his crew are entering a new stage at Gas Monkey Garage, setting out to prove the shop is still going strong. Richard and his team search high and low for forgotten and derelict vintage cars to buy and restore, and this season they're determined to go big - literally - by finding an original 1973 Chevy P30 Step Van and turning it into a hot rod. Throughout the season, guest builders Big Mike Sajid and Brian Bass also show off their skills and work with the Monkeys to build impressive hot rods.
Without Aaron, the Monkeys work harder than ever before to turn even the most neglected cars into gold, and with Richard's eye for rare finds, the team gets their hands on some unique cars - including a 1965 Shelby GT Mustang. However, these rare cars come with hefty price tags. Will Richard and his crew at Gas Monkey Garage be able to finish cars and turn a profit without Aaron, or will they lose sight of looming deadlines with too many opinions on each build?
FAST N' LOUD is produced for Discovery Channel by Pilgrim Media Group, with Craig Piligian and Eddie Rohwedder serving as executive producers. For Discovery Channel, Craig Coffman is executive producer with Todd Lefkowitz serving as producer. Richard Rawlings also serves as executive producer.
