LOS ANGELES — Discovery Communications L.L.C. has developed a reality show, Garage Rehab, that will attempt to help struggling independent garage owners across America.
The new series, airing Wednesday evenings on Discovery Channel, features Richard Rawlings, a garage owner from Forth Worth, Texas, and host of Discovery's "Fast N' Loud" series. He and a pair of assistants work with struggling shop owners get their businesses, and their lives, back on track.
In each episode, Mr. Rawlings takes over a shop, making all decisions for the business as he works to revamp and revitalize the enterprise using his knowledge of the auto aftermarket and marketing skills to transform the struggling garages into profitable businesses.
Mr. Rawlings owns and operates Gas Monkey Garage in Forth Worth, Texas, a business that "makes the fastest, most badass hot rods around," according to the firm's Facebook page.
