(from ABC's press release, March 2015) Johnny Knoxville of Jackass fame is the narrator in this comedy based on his childhood in Knoxville, Tennessee in the early 1980's. 12-year-old Johnny is impulsive and acts before he thinks: jumping out of trees, eating nails, and rolling down the street inside a tire. His mother, the beautiful Genevieve, worries that all the stress he causes her will ruin her good looks. This lovable narcissist is always happy to share stories about the many men who find her attractive. And yes, it's always about her. She and Johnny love being the center of attention much to the irritation of Johnny's sister, 16-year-old Audrey. Like her mom, Audrey has the beauty to attract lots of suitors and admirers. She's also the brightest one in the family, but that's often overlooked and taken for granted by the rest of the Knoxville clan. Johnny, the future daredevil/prankster, learned many of his skills from his Dad, Ray, who loves playing jokes on people. Ray is a tough guy with a big personality and an even bigger heart, but tends to be a little too lenient when it comes to his chip off the old block. Being a future daredevil/prankster means Johnny gets in trouble pretty much all the time. The only place he can be himself and not get in trouble is at his dad's tire store, where he feels accepted by the guys who work there. There's the even-tempered Big Stevie and the wiry, small and easy to anger "Jukebox" Johnson, Jr. They may be opposite in looks and temperament, but they are both tough like Ray and, as Johnny describes them "very familiar with the judicial system." But his mom wants more for her son than a future working at a tire store. While his teachers see him as an out-of-control student, Genevieve sees him as someone with imagination and boundless energy. She wants him to harness those qualities and do something special with his life... or she'll kill him. Knoxville executive produces with Michael Rotenberg (Silicon Valley, It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia, Everybody Hates Chris), Victor Fresco (Better Off Ted, My Name is Earl) and Dave Becky (Louis). Pilot written by Victor Fresco and directed by Mike Fresco.
