*OWN has ordered eight episodes of its one-hour docuseries “2 Fat 2 Fly” for premiere in early 2015.
A sneak peek special of the show aired Saturday, Aug. 16 at 10 p.m. under the title “Wingmen,” and was No. 1 in the time period on ad-supported cable for African-American women 25-54. The title for the series was changed to the name of their business.
It follows best friends Ramone Dickerson and Corey Simmons as they navigate their small-town food truck selling a twist on a culinary classic: stuffed chicken wings.
Their secret stuffing technique puts savory dishes like jambalaya and mac & cheese inside a chicken wing.
The pair have yet to figure out how to make their business truly successful. Episodes will document the triumphs and challenges the pair encounter as they plot their path toward the American dream.
The series will air during the network’s Saturday night programming block.
