It's Short-Shorts, Fast Cars and Country Stars on CMT With the Return of 'THE DUKES OF HAZZARD' Series

CMT Kicks Off an All-Dukes Weekend with a New Episode of CMT Inside Fame Featuring Original Stars John Schneider, Tom Wopat and Catherine Bach

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif., Jan. 14 -- In 1979 the unmistakable voice of music legend Waylon Jennings introduced America, in both theme song and show narration, to Bo, Luke, and Daisy Duke, and a new pop culture phenomenon exploded onto TV sets across the nation. CMT brings back THE DUKES OF HAZZARD for a whole new generation of Dukes fans and long-time devotees beginning with an all-Dukes weekend Friday, Feb. 25 through Sunday, Feb. 27 featuring the premiere of CMT INSIDE FAME: THE DUKES OF HAZZARD and CMT's re-launch of the hit series.

It's the series that made short-shorts, fast cars and CB radios cool as THE DUKES OF HAZZARD became a mainstay in American homes and hearts for seven wildly successful seasons. Modern day Robin Hoods - cousins Bo, Luke, and Daisy Duke along with their Uncle Jesse - fought the corrupt political system in Hazzard County. In addition to Jennings' No. 1 hit song "Theme From The Dukes of Hazzard (Good Ol' Boys)" and his narration of each episode, the series was packed with guest appearances by country stars including Loretta Lynn, the Oak Ridge Boys, Tammy Wynette, Buck Owens, Dottie West, and many more.

CMT explores the cultural impact of the Dukes of Hazzard phenomenon in a new episode of CMT INSIDE FAME, featuring new interviews with original stars John Schneider (Bo Duke), Tom Wopat (Luke Duke), Catherine Bach (Daisy Duke), James Best (Rosco P. Coltrane) and guest stars, crew members, fans and critics who discuss the show's remarkable success. CMT INSIDE FAME, premiering Friday, Feb. 25 at 8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT,* offers a fond and funny look back on THE DUKES OF HAZZARD.

Hazzard County hero John Schneider discusses the evergreen success of the show in CMT INSIDE FAME. "The world stopped when the Dukes of Hazzard was on," Schneider says. "And in a day and age when we have 800 channels and have all these different things to watch, it still seems like the world stops when the 'Dukes of Hazzard' comes on. There is something so welcoming about the Dukes."

Immediately following CMT INSIDE FAME, CMT kicks-off a weekend marathon of Dukes episodes beginning at 9:00 PM, ET/PT.* Starting with the series' very first episode, CMT takes viewers through the speed traps and pitfalls of the Dukes' adventures with the famed car, the General Lee. THE DUKES OF HAZZARD, licensed to CMT by Warner Bros. Domestic Cable Distribution, begins in its regular weeknight timeslot of 7:00-8:00 PM, ET/PT (repeats at 11:00 PM-12:00 Midnight) starting Monday, Feb. 28.
