USA TODAY – BEVERLY HILLS — A Discovery Channel miniseries about the creation of the iconic Harley-Davidson motorcycle company offered a perk to its stars: the chance to ride modern re-creations of the company’s early bikes.

 

Michiel Huisman (Game of Thrones), who plays one of the company’s founders in the three-part Harley and the Davidsons (Sept. 5-7, 9 ET/PT), talked about the fun early motorcycles, with engines designed from scratch, at the Television Critics Association summer press tour Monday.

 

“I was lucky enough to ride replicas of bikes that don’t exist anymore, or they’re behind glass at the Harley-Davidson Museum in Milwaukee,” he says, adding he rode motorcycles in his 20s. “They were great fun to ride and very challenging to ride, but I think compared to the (originals). they were probably really smooth.”

 

Harley follows founders Walter Davidson (Huisman), William “Bill” Harley (Robert Aramayo, Game of Thrones) and Arthur Davidson (Bug Hall, The Little Rascals) from the creation of their company at the dawn of the 20th century through its early decades of growth and development, as its motorcycles became a symbol of American freedom.

 

Harley features scenes of motorcycle racing, a very risky proposition in the early years, said executive producer Dimitri Doganis.

 

“At the time, motorcycling was an incredibly dangerous activity and motorcycle racing was extremely dangerous. … the bikes had no brakes and no gears. You would turn them on and they would go as fast as they could go,” Doganis said. The machines also would spew oil on the velodrome-like wooden tracks, so that “these things were not only hugely dangerous to the riders, they were also massively dangerous to the spectators because the bikes would fly into the crowd and there were historical examples … of multiple spectators being killed. This was a gladiatorial arena.”

 

Harley also stars Stephen Rider (Daredevil), Jessica Camacho (Sleepy Hollow), Daniel Coonan (EastEnders) and Gabe Luna (Matador).

UNREALITY TV – GAME OF THRONES ROBERT ARAMAYO AND MICHIEL HUISMAN STAR IN DISCOVERY CHANNEL’S BRAND NEW SCRIPTED SERIES

 

Based on a true story, HARLEY AND THE DAVIDSONS chronicles the childhood friends behind the rise of America’s most iconic motorcycle company. The three part mini-series charts the birth of Harley-Davidson during a time of great social and technological change and tells the epic story of how two 19-year-olds, with help from their families, started a company in their backyard that would go on to become an American legend.

 

Beginning at the turn of the 20th century, on a humble street in Milwaukee at the shores of Lake Michigan, William (Bill) Harley and Arthur Davidson designed a motorised bicycle that they believed would give people a new way to see the world around them.

 

The friends who refused to settle for the status quo, faced adversity, challenges, tragedy and competition but at the sign of every setback they found a way to push forward. HARLEY AND THE DAVIDSONS goes inside the minds, hearts and motors of these young men to show how ordinary men took their dream and built a company that became a global empire.

 

HARLEY AND THE DAVIDSONS will premiere exclusively in the UK on Discovery Channel, 9pm, Friday 9th, Saturday 10th and Sunday 11th September (Sky 520, Virgin 250, BT TV 322)

INSTYLE – We’ve been bringing you the best quote from each episode all season long, so to wrap things up we’ve rounded up the most memorable quotes from Season 6 below.

 

 

#7. Season 6, Episode 4: “Book of the Stranger”

 

Daenerys Targaryen proved time and time again throughout the entirety of Season 6 that she is not to be underestimated. And after the culmination of the season in the finale, the Mother of Dragons was one step closer to claiming her rule on the Iron Throne.

EW – With Emmy season in full swing, the Television Critics Association has announced the roster of nominees for its 32nd annual awards ceremony, boosting HBO and FX to the top of the pack with 12 and 11 overall nominations, respectively.

 

While HBO and FX lead in total nominations, USA’s Mr. Robot, a first-time nominee, garnered the most individual nods for a series (tied with FX’s The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story), earning recognition in Individual Achievement in Drama (Rami Malek), Outstanding New Program, Outstanding Achievement in Drama, and Program of the Year.

 

Elsewhere in Program of the Year, HBO scored a nomination for Game of Thrones, while FX landed three series amid the category’s seven slots: Fargo, The Americans, and The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story. Lifetime’s UnREAL and Netflix’s Making a Murderer round out the list of Program of the Year contenders.

 

The CW also made a strong showing with the TCA, earning three total nominations for its Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, including in Individual Achievement in Comedy (Rachel Bloom) and Outstanding New Program. It’s worth noting that each of the nominees in the latter category come from smaller networks, as series from the usual suspects like ABC, HBO, and other major TV players are noticeably absent. WGN America (Underground), Netflix (Marvel’s Jessica Jones, Masters of None), USA (Mr. Robot), and Lifetime (UnREAL), however, picked up the slack.
