LARRY THE CABLE GUY’S ‘ONLY IN AMERICA’ SERIES HEADS TO AXS TV STARTING APRIL 21 AT 9 P.M. ET/6 P.M. PT
LOS ANGELES – APRIL 17, 2015 – AXS TV, the premier music and entertainment network, has acquired the off-network cable rights to blue collar comedian Larry the Cable Guy’s hit reality series ONLY IN AMERICA in a multi-year deal with A+E Networks. The three season, 48-episode series will premiere in its regular weekly timeslot on AXS TV Tuesday, April 21 at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT.
ONLY IN AMERICA follows Larry the Cable Guy as he travels the country looking for people, places and things that define the country’s unique history with a comedic perspective that only Larry can serve up. In each episode, Larry the Cable Guy showcases his “Git-R-Done” attitude, delving into uniquely American Adventures such as learning moose mating calls in Alaska, pursuing a mythical beast with the Kentucky Bigfoot Research Group, interning with “Naked Cowboys” in Time Square, and struggling through Army sniper school. No matter where Larry’s cross-country journey takes him, everyone he meets is a bona fide American original, and the surprising history he uncovers is delivered with a fun, down-home twist.
Larry the Cable Guy is a multiplatinum recording artist, GRAMMY® nominee, Billboard Award-winner and one of the top comedians in the country. After years of working the comedy circuit, he was propelled to superstardom as a member of the Blue Collar Comedy Tour and has since gone on to star in film and television.
The series joins AXS TV’s Tuesday night primetime schedule following Dan Rather’s celebrity interview series THE BIG INTERVIEW and leading into the weekly, live concert series THE WORLD’S GREATEST TRIBUTE BANDS.
ONLY IN AMERICA was executive produced by Craig Piligian and Eddie Rohwedder for Pilgrim Studios, Larry the Cable Guy, J.P. for Parallel Entertainment and Susan Werbe for History.
