DISCOVERY TAKES TO THE GRITTY STREETS OF MEMPHIS IN THE ALL NEW SERIES "STREET OUTLAWS: MEMPHIS"
Series Premieres Monday, January 15th at 10PM ET/PT
Discovery's hit series STREET OUTLAWS is traveling to the toughest, meanest and wildest streets in the South, as it heads to Memphis to spotlight JJ Da Boss and his team of family and friends who have been racing together for decades. The all new series debuts Monday, January 15th at 10pm ET/PT on Discovery.
In Memphis, it's all for one and one for all, and no one illustrates that sentiment better than JJ Da Boss and his "Team Memphis" crew. Along with his wife Tricia, who is known on the streets as "Midget," and his cousin Precious, also known as the "Queen of the Streets," fast-talking JJ welcomes viewers into his world where racing is all about pride and honor. Team Memphis has few rules, and its members often put their lives on the line for the hustle of the race. They are "trying to beat ya, not cheat ya," and are available whenever a challenger emerges.
JJ's "arm drop" and "chase is the race" styles require knowledge and skill, and his family of racers rarely fails, as success hinges not just on speed, but on their ability to count on their teammates and get each other from "A to B."
It's a crazy world full of big characters, who all have colorful histories both on and off the track. They're also well-versed in the art of the hustle and bring that to each race.
Viewers will also be able to catch the current season, along with past seasons of STREET OUTLAWS, on the Discovery GO app - free with their paid TV subscription.
STREET OUTLAWS is produced for Discovery Channel by Pilgrim Media Group; Craig Piligian and Sam Korkis are executive producers. For Discovery, Craig Coffman and Todd Lefkowitz are executive producers, and Lindsay Malinchak is coordinating producer.
