Eight episodes will follow family of Atlanta millionaire
USA Network has ordered eight episodes of the new half-hour original reality series “Chrisley Knows Best” about fussy Atlanta self-made multimillionaire Todd Chrisley, who tries to provide his family a perfect Southern life.
Chrisley runs his family like his business — “with an iron fist,” says USA. Brandishing sass and and a gift for insults, he keeps his kids in line with brutally honest parenting.
Though he's made his money in real estate, he now wants to move into fashion — and personally approves every item of clothing his children wear.
The series, produced by Maverick TV and All3Media America, is slated to premiere with two back-to-back episodes on USA on Tuesday, March 11 at 10/9c. E! will broadcast encore presentations of each new episode on Sundays at 10:30/9:30c beginning March 16. “Chrisley Knows Best” is a working title.
“‘Chrisley Knows Best’ is a broad family comedy that is a modern version of Father Knows Best with the volume turned way up” said Heather Olander, senior vice president of alternative programming for USA Network. “While their lifestyle is over-the-top and their personalities are larger-than-life, the Chrisleys are a very close-knit family who are refreshingly honest and genuinely funny.”
The family includes “super mom” Julie, as well as daughter Julie, who stuns her parents with news of her elopement and pregnancy. Son Kyle, whose parents shipped him off to Samoa to work with the Red Cross when he was caught with a married woman, is now roommates with his grandmother.
Chase, 17, is a mini version of his dad, and 16-year-old Savannah is a pageant queen boasts with a 4.2 grade point average: Grayson, 7, can gets away with almost everything.
The show is produced by Maverick TV and All3Media America, with Adam Greener, Jim Sayer, and Stephanie Bloch Chambers serving as executive producers. Annie Kate Pons is a supervising producer.
