With access to five former chapter presidents including Charles “PeeWee” Goldsmith, Thomas Eriksen, Pat Matter, Matt Zanoskar and George Christie alongside exclusive interviews with law enforcement officers, undercover agents, victims and more, it is revealed that the Hells Angels were a much more violent, devious, and highly organized group than anyone realised.

The series also features Sonny’s ex-wife, Noel Barger, who speaks for the first time about Sonny’s motives and reveals the secret truth that destroyed their relationship. The in-depth, never-before heard interviews, rare archival footage and exclusive content expose the club’s most guarded secrets and ultimately, the cost of being an Angel.
