SLACK IS BACK!
NATE RETURNS HOME AFTER GRADUATION
TO FIGURE OUT WHAT'S NEXT
ON THE PREVIEW PREMIERE OF "FREE RIDE"
WEDNESDAY, MARCH 1, ON FOX
FREE RIDE is a partially improvised comedy that follows recent UC Santa Barbara graduate Nate Stahlings as he boomerangs home to move back in with his parents in their small Midwestern town, Johnson City, MO. Upon his return, he discovers his mom Margo and dad Bob are knee-deep in marriage therapy and his bedroom has been turned into a gym. The good news is that Nate reconnects with cute former-classmate-turned-local-bank-teller Amber Danwood; the bad news is she's newly engaged. Nate also hooks up with Mark Dove, a guy who peaked in high school and has been cruising downhill in his monster truck ever since. Dove takes Nate under his "wing" to show him the local party scene, which turns out to be way more mild than wild in the "Missouri Loves Company" ("Pilot") episode of FREE RIDE Thursday, March. 1 (9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. (FRE-101) (TV-PG D, S)
Cast: Josh Dean as Nate Stahlings, Erin Cahill as Amber Danwood, Allan Havey as Bob Stahlings, Loretta Fox as Margo Stahlings, Dave Sheridan as Mark Dove, Dan Wells as Steve Moss, Kirby Heyborne as Dillon, Jordan Black as Calvin, Steve Berg as Ronnie, Chad Brokay as Tyler.
