ET – It’s time to rev up!
Discovery Channel is counting down to the fall launch of its new motorcycle miniseries, Harley and the Davidsons, and Game of Thrones stud Michiel Huisman (a.k.a. Daario Naharis) is at the center of all the exciting action.
ET has the exclusive first look at the official trailer, which debuted Monday at the summer Television Critics Association press tour.
Based on a true story, Harley and the Davidsons centers on the birth of the iconic Harley-Davidson motorcycle and the founders behind the revolutionary, century-old company, brothers Walter (Huisman) and Arthur Davidson (The Little Rascals’ Bug Hall), and their pal, Bill Harley (Game of Thrones’ Robert Aramayo).
As the two-minute trailer suggests, the road to success isn’t smooth or pretty, but how often is that the case?
“I’m going to put my money into this. We’ve got to be different. We’ve got to be bigger, stronger, faster,” Huisman’s Walter says in the trailer, setting the scene for the trio’s rocky — but ultimately successful — road to history-making. “This machine … this is it.”
As the three men embark on their mission to become the No. 1 motorcycle company in the world, so come the fruits of their labor. In one suggestive scene, Aramayo’s Bill confidently tells a young woman — clearly impressed by his efforts — the pros of riding a bike: “It’s like an explosion between your legs.” Well then!
It’s not all fun and games, of course. Naysayers, failed tests, power struggles, all-out fist fights and high-stakes risks make the three-night miniseries all the more intriguing to watch. Plus, Huisman, 35, rocks a mean leather jacket and tells a grown man to “eat our dust.” Yup, we’re in!
Harley and the Davidsons begins its three-night premiere Monday, Sept. 5 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Discovery Channel.
