Big Easy Motors TV Show
There’s undiscovered treasure in the bayous of Louisiana and Charles Handler knows how to find it. From a 1957 Chevy Bel Air convertible to a 1967 Shelby Mustang GT, Handler and his team find long-forgotten piles of automotive junk and transform them into dazzling custom cars.
Charles is co-owner of The Bomb Factory, an automobile restoration shop in the Bywater neighborhood of New Orleans. His favorite part of the restoration process is not just using his creativity in the design process, but the satisfaction of hunting down the most obscure parts.
Other characters in the show include shop co-owner Trey Hansen, Benny, Devin Haun, and Chris.
Each episode, based in New Orleans, commonly called "The Big Easy", features incredible vehicle restorations and high stakes auctions where everything is on the line.
Expect to see lots of New Orleans and South Louisiana scenery, from the French Quarter to nearby swamps.
The new show airs on the History Channel.

Louisiana is a popular setting for the movie industry, and several hit reality TV shows on the History Channel, Discovery Channel, A&E, CMT, and other cable networks.
The Bayou State has become an exciting location featuring a diversity of towns and subjects for reality television for three main reasons: 1) tax credits and incentives, 2) mild year-round weather, and 3) interesting, likable, real-world characters.
According to a report prepared by the Louisiana Office of Entertainment Industry Development, Louisiana has had five consecutive years of economic growth in the film and music industry.
The report also recognizes Louisiana as ranked third in film and television production nationwide behind only California and New York.
