Brace yourselves for more outlaw biker tripe.
The television network History will premiere the second season of Gangland Undercover on September 26 in the United States. The second season will premiere in England on October 11 on History UK. History is one of 19 specialty television networks recently sold by a company named Shaw Communications to Corus Entertainment. Gangland Undercover was produced a man named Stephen Kemp. Kemp is the Creative Director of Factual Drama at Cineflix Productions, Inc. All three companies, Shaw, Corus and Cineflix are based in Toronto.
Both the first and second seasons of Gangland Undercover, as well as a possible third season that may be cablecast in 2017, are based on a book by a professional snitch – he prefers the term “infiltrator” – named Ashley Charles Wyatt. Wyatt now calls himself Charles Falco. And using that name he co-authored Vagos, Mongols, and Outlaws: My Infiltration of America’s Deadliest Biker Gangs with Phoenix attorney and author Kerrie Droban
Vagos And Bible Studies
The first season of Gangland Undercover presented a very fictionalized account of Wyatt/Falco’s betrayal of various members of the Vagos Motorcycle Club during a Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives operation against the club called Operation 22 Green. U.S. Marshals relocated Wyatt to Virginia where he earned two online degrees in Bible Studies from Liberty Christian University.
When he couldn’t pay off his student loans he went to work for the ATF again. “The Marshals do not allow you to get out of past debt,” he explained in a written interview in 2012. “So in my case I owed several thousand dollars in student loans that I still pay under Ashley. These bills are sent to Marshal mail drops, which are then sent to DC, which are then sent to my area Marshal field office, who then sends them to me. I have several of these Marshal mail drops in California and Nevada that I use. Kind of cool on how this works! I am no longer in this program, but they still forward my mail. Even after you leave the WPP you keep your new identity, since it is now your legal new name. I hope that makes sense.”
Mongols And Television
At the time, the ATF and Wyatt’s old ATF handler, Darrin Kozlowski, were engaged in a years-long infiltration of the Mongols Motorcycle Club that would eventually be called Operation Black Rain. Another ATF snitch named Daniel “Coconut Dan” Horrigan was in charge of issuing patches to members outside the Southwest so Wyatt became a founding member of a Mongols chapter in Virginia. Members of that chapter, including undercover ATF agents, eventually left the Mongols and became members of the American Outlaws Association.
Damon Runyan, the appealing Canadian actor who plays Wyatt/Falco on television, has already filmed 14 episodes of Gangland Undercover. Ari Cohen, the Canadian actor who portrays Darrin Kozlowski, has already filmed ten episodes of the series.
History cablecast the first six episodes of Gangland Undercover in February and March 2015. So there are at least eight more episodes to go. Although the next season of the show is scheduled for release in less than three weeks neither Corus, History nor Cineflix have yet released publicity materials for the previously unaired episodes
