George Christie got his television show.
According to Christie’s website, “The History Channel is airing a six-part series that spans 30 years of George’s life as a leading voice in the notorious outlaw motorcycle club, the Hells Angels. The Outlaw Chronicles is a captivating series that shares George’s insights to this unique world and introduces viewers to stories that have never been shared in public. The Outlaw Chronicles is scheduled to premiere on the History Channel August 18, 2015.”
According to the History Channel: “Outlaw Chronicles: Hells Angels takes a deep look into the untold stories of the infamous biker gang through the words of George Christie. For over 35 years, Christie led the Ventura Hells Angels chapter and is ready to share untold experiences. Combining stylized interviews with Christie, along with archival footage and recreations, each episode of the six-part series tells a different tale that Christie has never before made public.”
The series is produced by Shaw Media, a Canadian company that is a subsidiary of a Canadian telecommunications conglomerate called Shaw Communications Inc. The conglomerate is headquartered in Calgary, Alberta.
Christie was expelled from the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club in 2011 with the status of “Out Bad, No Contact.” Christie owned a tattoo parlor in Ventura called The Ink House and in December 2011 he was indicted for conspiring to extort competing tattoo shops and firebombing two of them. Christie faced life imprisonment and went to trial in January 2013. Five days into the trial he agreed to a plea and sentencing agreement that delayed his sentencing and eventually resulted in a one year sentence at the Federal Correctional Institution, La Tuna. He completed his sentence about a year ago. His plea deal remains sealed.
Earlier this year, The Aging Rebel legally obtained multiple, taped conversations between Christie and law enforcement officials and other Hells Angels that suggested that Christie had been expelled from the Hells Angels because he had cooperated with police.
On his website, Christie explains, “In 2011, he resigned his presidency of the Ventura charter and left the club. George was quickly excommunicated by his former brothers. The feds wasted no time and within weeks came with an indictment for a 2006 conspiracy to firebomb two Ventura tattoo shops. As George faced a mandatory life sentence if found guilty, the government offered a plea deal, but he would have to accept responsibility for the arson. In a surprise move just before sentenced was rendered, Mr Christie asked to address the court. He explained to Judge Wu that he had not directed anyone to burnout the two shops but would accept responsibility for poor leadership. The court accepted his explanation, and after two years on house arrest recovering from double hip replacements, George left for a Texas Federal prison where he would spend the next year. In August of 2014 he was released from custody.”
His site also says: “The demand continues for George’s voice and stories, and he has many exciting projects in the works. New projects will be unveiled here as they are ready for public release. George is always ready to share his stories and his view on life and he has never met an audience that he didn’t like.”
At least at last the whole world will know where all the bodies are buried.
