When the A&E channel launched earlier this year it screened a MegaTruckers special and now the series premieres next month.
Cordell Jigsaw has filmed this as an 8x30min profiling Jon Kelly and the fleet at his Brissy-based trucking company Heavy Haulage Australia.
In the big country, blue-collar Aussie hero Jon Kelly and his team of heavy haulage drivers specialize in moving the biggest loads you will ever see on the road to places no-one thought they can get them to.
Jon has built Heavy Haulage Australia from a one-truck operation to a 25-strong fleet of the best-looking trucks in Australia in just over ten years. Incredibly he’s still only 32 years old.
What’s more, Jon has a reputation for taking on the hardest jobs in the business. If they say it can’t be done it’s like a red rag to a bull – he’ll do everything he can to take it on and make it happen.
Jon has a reputation for being a hard-taskmaster. He tells it how it is and isn’t afraid to let rip if anyone doesn’t meet his high standards:
“Work for me, do a good job and you’ve got a job for life. But god help you if you don’t listen to me and something goes wrong …”
With big characters, big stakes and even bigger loads, MegaTruckers will be must-see TV for every action-reality fan.
