Ever wonder what would happen if the guys from Jersey Shore gained 200 pounds, went to jail for racketeering and opened a car dealership? Neither have we. In its infinite thirst for trashy reality television, Discovery Channel has decided to answer that unasked question with a new reality show called Carfellas.

It follows "da head chief" Mikey D. and his lackeys Tommie and Mario (seriously) as they attempt to extract money from hapless passerby peddling used vehicles. Complete with cigars, Cadillacs, misogyny and shots of fat hands pawing hundred-dollar bills, Carfellas looks ready to put the Nielsen ratings in a persuasive headlock. Discovery Channel will air a sneak peek at the show Monday, Aug. 29 at 10:30 after American Chopper, but we have another trailer after the jump.

GET YOUR MOTOR RUNNING WITH DISCOVERY CHANNEL'S NEW SERIES CARFELLLAS

Sneak Peek this Monday, August 29th at 10PM ET and 10:30pm ET

(New York, NY) - Meet Mike DeLucia - Mikey D. for short. Mikey's definitely made some mistakes throughout his life. He's paid the price and now he's ready to make an honest buck – in the used car business. Discovery Channel's brand new seriesCARFELLAS chronicles Mikey's life at his dealership. Get a SNEAK PEEK on Monday, August 29th at 10 PM ET/PT and 10:30 PM ET/PT, following a new episode of AMERICAN CHOPPER.

In CARFELLAS, reformed convict Mikey D. is joined by his crew, Tommie and Mario. These three steer the wheel of Broadway Motors, Mikey D's used car dealership in Amityville, Long Island. Mike runs the lot, is obsessed with moving inventory and generally keeps the guys in check. Mario knows cars inside and out. He's a skilled appraiser with a keen eye. Tommie, aka "5 x 5″ (five feet tall and five feet wide), is the muscle of the operation with a genuine love for Cadillac's, cannoli's, and cute girls.

These knock-around guys are experienced at getting money out of people. But this time they are out to make an honest living...selling used cars, Long Island style.

CARFELLAS is produced for Discovery Channel by Leftfield Pictures. Brent Montgomery and David George are executive producers for Leftfield Pictures, and Christo Doyle is executive producer for Discovery Channel.

      Shows like this is why I dumped my satellite dish and just watch BluRays and Netflix. All these reality shows have trashed almost every channel that I used to like watching. How often does the History Channel actually have a program about something historical anymore? Besides which, I don't pay Dish Network $140 per month any more.

      Another reality show, just how low do the producers of these shows think American's IQ's are dipping to? Discover: I just lost all respect for what used to be a straight shooting educational channel.

        So Mercedes-Benz Certified and Honda Certified used cars aren't honest?

      Sounds like documentation for deceptive sales practices and follow-on lawsuits.

      Reaching new heights of awfulness, this fall on Discovery! Not only does this look terrible, it looks like the producers were trying WAY TOO HARD to find "outrageous" characters. Terrible.

      I think I just lost a few brain cells from wasting the 2:36 needed to preview that clip.

        Why are you comparing the 2? They're 2 very different shows.

          Not really, bought shows center around the buying and selling if cars, Carfellas seems to do that with less car buying/selling and more fake reality show antics. This show would be better suited for Tru TV, right after Operation Repo.

          So basically you just agreed with me while disagreeing with me? You just proved that they're 2 different shows. 1 is a show about buying and selling cars while the other is just about being on the inside of a business that sells cars that focuses on (what the world refers to as nowadays because of ignorance) "reality".
