TCA16: Discovery Revs Up Harley-Davidson Series

Beverly Hills, Calif. -- Discovery Channel in September will launch a miniseries that will chart the birth and growth of the iconic Harley Davidson motorcycle.

The mini-series, Harley and The Davidsons, debuts Sept. 5 and will follow the birth of the iconic bike by founders Walter and Arthur Davidson and their friend Bill Harley, said network officials. The three-part series will air over three consecutive days, ending on Sept. 7, according to network officials.

 “This is the type of compelling and honest storytelling that fits perfectly for Discovery Channel,” said Rich Ross, Group President of Discovery Channel, Animal Planet and Science Channel in a statement. “It is a story about brotherhood, an ironclad will to succeed and going against the conventional wisdom of that time. The founders of Harley-Davidson created more than just a motorcycle. They created modern entrepreneurism.”
