Discovery releases trailer for CarFellas reality series

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.

(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.
