“Being from the Boston area I’ve always been interested in stories of armored car and bank robberies. The Town, The Friends of Eddie Coyle – these stories are in my blood as much as stories about Aerosmith and the J. Geils Band are,” said Jake Brennan. “So, when the opportunity arose to partner with Ashley Flowers and the rest of the Audiochuck team to tell true crime armored car stories—something my Boston lineage directly suited me for – I jumped at it. Armored delves into true crime armored heist stories from around the world, myself and the Audiochuck team deliver the high stakes details in a way that will keep the listener on the edge of their seat.”
“We are thrilled to work with Jake on Armored. He is an enthralling storyteller whose vivid narration brings these absorbing stories to life,” added Ashley Flowers, CEO and Founder, Audiochuck. “Through extensive research, exclusive interviews, and executive production by Audiochuck’s Delia D’Ambra, this 10-part, original series gives new context to some of the most infamous heists. We can’t wait to bring Armored to our fans and look forward debuting more unique content this year.”
Brennan, Flowers and Audiochuck are repped by UTA.
