Plot

The show follows the incredible true life story of Rick aka “THE WINGMAN” a successful purveyor of chicken wings, who turned $100 into a 100 store chicken wing chain, only to lose it all to his staff of misfits. In the first episode, he opens his 100th chicken wing franchised restaurant only to tell his franchisees that he would be playing himself in a fictitious mockumentary. The show was influenced by personal events in his life.

 

Style

Rooted in the present day, this digitally remastered docuseries takes place mostly in reality extenuated by fantastic flashbacks, delusion flash forwards and cartoonish side characters. Wingmen is a mix of comedy and drama employing various styles of shooting such as interviews, fun interstitials and fly on the wall techniques.

 

Production

Wolfe Brothers Entertainment, originally conceived the idea of a pilot to be called Rags To Rick. Principle shooting started June 2013 in Aurora Ontario, Canada at the corporate office Wingmen Headquarters.
After financing difficulties in November 2013, the show could no longer be funded by the Wolfe Brothers so they subsequently sold the footage to a new entity called Passion Play Media who became the rights holder. They rebranded the show to Wingmen.
Roy Wolfe stayed on as a consultant but was replaced by his brother Mitch who was eventually cast to play himself as the executive producer. Originally created for TV, the show had to be recut to a digital format before it could air on Amazon prime. To date over 10 million dollars has been spent on this 12 hour, 36 episode Pilot.
