Carfellas: Discovery's New Show About Ex-Cons, Cars & Cannoli

August 24, 2011


If you're the sort of TV fanatic who dreams about a mash-up between the brashness of The Sopranos and the waistbands of Pawn Stars, we've got good news: the Discovery Channel has just ordered 12 episodes of a reality show called Carfellas, and the first two are set to air on Monday night.

Carfellas centers around one Mike DeLucia (aka Mikey D.), who once engaged in some unsavory business practices and was ordered to spend an unspecified amount of time in a correctional facility. Mikey, however, has seen the light, and he's determined to become a legitimate businessman in the most legitimate business of all: used car sales.

And so, Mikey D. has opened a dealership called Broadway Motors in Amityville, Long Island. In the trailer below, we see Mikey and his crew, Tommie and Mario, try to hustle an honest buck from shoppers and shysters, all while keeping up plenty of chatter about strippers, spacones, and the various gavonnes littering their lives.   

All kidding aside: this looks like it might be a lot of fun. Discovery will run two episodes back to back on Monday night, beginning at 10pm ET, right after American Chopper
