Blue Collar Comedians to Try TV

Jeff Foxworthy, Bill Engvall and Larry the Cable Guy — who first appeared together on the Blue Collar Comedy Tour — will film six episodes of a comedy series for The WB network. As yet untitled, the series will be a combination of sketch comedy and reality TV featuring an ensemble cast. It will be shot in Atlanta. Show producers Fax Bahr and Adam Small refer to the concept as “In Living Blue Collar,” referring to the ’90s urban sketch comedy series In Living Color. Foxworthy says, “I didn’t want to come back to television in a conventional sitcom, and this sketch comedy-reality show is a perfect fit.”
