On Monday, June 11, truTV's hit reality series, "Lizard Lick Towing" will return for a third season.
Since its debut in February 2011, the show has put Lizard Lick, North Carolina back on the map while chronicling the trials of Ron and Amy Shirley, the owners of Lizard Lick Towing. The "Lizard Lick Towing" TV series features dramatic recreations of the company's repossessions of vehicles; which sometimes include serious threats of violence, stabbings and even a dog-napping. But then again, nobody ever said that this was a safe line of work.
With two full seasons already under their belt on truTV, the Lizard Lick Towing team's biggest challenges lie ahead. But Ron and Amy aren't in this alone. Ron's best friend Bobby Brantley is also one of his best repo agents. And all told, Lizard Lick Towing has an impressive fleet of 20 trucks and 15 staff members.
However, the "Lizard Lick Towing" TV series primarily focuses on Ron, Amy and Bobby:
Ron founded Lizard Lick Towing back in 1998 with just a single truck before the company grew into the behemoth that it is today. Ron not only owns the company, he also runs the day-to-day operations, locates the property to be repossessed on behalf of the lien holders and he actually goes on the repo runs. On top of that, Ron is a published writer and an ordained minister who enjoys traveling the country and performing weddings.
Ron even makes a point of helping people who have been financially struggling and he holds a huge barbecue every year for some of the people whose vehicles he's had to repossess.
Amy Vaughan Shirley
Amy is Ron's wife and his strong right hand. And when we say strong, we mean that she could probably crush you. Not only is Amy the co-owner and office manager for Lizard Lick Towing, she is also an accomplished power lifter.
People who assume that they can push Amy around and easily reclaim their vehicles are usually in for an unpleasant surprise. Let's just say that Amy doesn't take anything from anyone. Without Amy, Lizard Lick Towing simply wouldn't be what it is today.
To call Bobby a sidekick to Ron is something of a disservice to the man. True, Bobby is often with Ron for the most difficult repo cases and he's one of the best guys that Lizard Lick has in their corner. But he's no Robin! Think of them as a team up of Batman and Batman.
According to Lizard Lick lore, Bobby was originally an unhappy customer whose truck was towed by Lizard Lick and he started working for the company to pay off the debt. Through the years, Bobby and Ron have had their ups and downs, but they are true friends and they have each others' backs when all of the chips are down.
Bobby seems to enjoy making people question his intelligence, but he's much sharper than he usually lets on and he's only too happy to prove it when the time is right.
Repo is Ron and Amy's dog and the Lizard Lick mascot who usually accompanies Ron on his repo runs. Once the victim of a dog-napping, Repo is back where he belongs alongside his family and friends.
To celebrate the return of "Lizard Lick Towing," truTV has provided a special preview video of the upcoming season.
