The owners of a Columbia food truck that sells stuffed chicken wings are getting their own TV show.
Wingmen, which follows the ups and downs of the 2 Fat 2 Fly truck and its owners Ramone Dickerson and Corey Simmons, premieres Aug. 16 on the Oprah Network.
The show follows Dickerson and Simmons’ attempts to make money off their innovative wing-stuffing technique in “small town” Columbia. “Cameras will roll as 2 Fat 2 Fly attempts to take the top prize at Hilton Head Island’s annual Wingfest,” reads a press release from the network.
But as you’ll see from the clip, the show is really about Dickerson and Simmons: their friendship, their antics, their challenges.
“Shortcomings aside, I think we can make it if we can just get our crazy in order,” says Simmons in the show teaser.
You may actually have seen the 2 Fat 2 Fly truck on national TV before: In 2011, the Cooking Channel’s Eat Street filmed a few bits in Columbia, spotlighting both the 2 Fat 2 Fly truck and Bone-In Artisan Barbecue. At the 0:27 mark in this teaser from that show, a woman says of Dickerson and Simmons, “They could have their own reality show.” And now they do.
