Jeff Foxworthy portrays himself in this mid-1990s sitcom, which is roughly based on his hit stand-up comedy routines that specialize in redneck humor. The series ran for two seasons, the first on ABC that followed the comic as an Indiana family man who operated a heating and air conditioning business. (ABC, incidentally, chose the Hoosier State as the setting out of concern that the Southern-infused comedy was not suited for a national audience.) The second season aired on NBC, which revamped the cast and the plot: The family now lived in Georgia, and Foxworthy worked on a loading dock. A noted co-star is Haley Joel Osment as one of Foxworthy’s sons. As it turned out, the soon-to-be movie star and Foxworthy were the only actors to appear in both seasons.
