Discovery Channel will honor the legacy of Burt Reynolds, the Oscar-nominated actor who passed away yesterday at the age of 82. The network will rebroadcast a special two-hour episode of FAST N’ LOUD on Saturday, September 8 at 9AM ET/PT that featured Reynolds and a replica of the iconic Smokey and The Bandit ‘77 Trans Am.
In this two-part episode, Richard Rawlings and his Gas Monkey crew are hired to help build the legendary vehicle. Rawlings, who is a huge fan of the renowned actor, along with fellow builder Aaron Kaufman head to Jupiter, Fla., with the Bandit-style Trans Am in hopes of getting Burt Reynolds to help Rawlings win a big bet against an old rival.
Discovery will also offer the special episode of FAST N’ LOUD on their multi-platform app, Discovery GO, which are free to viewers with their paid TV subscription.
