First Family of Reality Television Returns for Season Four of Showtime's Hit, Late Night Series 'FAMILY BUSINESS'
Series Premiere Set For Friday, April 21, at 11:30 PM ET/PT
LOS ANGELES, April 12 -- FAMILY BUSINESS, Showtime's hit
late night reality series about an average American family trying to make a
living in the adult entertainment industry, will premiere its fourth season
on Friday, April 21 at 11:30 PM ET/PT. The half-hour series offers a
hilarious blend of real-life absurdity and eccentric characters while
focusing on the charismatic Adam Glasser and his alter ego, "Seymore
Butts," his meddling, but well-meaning mother Lila, his cantankerous cousin
Stevie and his fun-loving girlfriend, Mirna.
Coming up in season four, Adam and the family take their act on the
road with raucous sojourns to a Las Vegas swingers' convention and an
adult-film shoot on the Caribbean island of St. Martin. Adam and Mirna
continue their unique and rocky relationship, as Cousin Stevie carries on
his quest to become an adult industry mover and shaker, all the while,
Lila, the matriarch, tries to hold it all together.
FAMILY BUSINESS originally premiered in February 2003 at which time the
San Francisco Chronicle remarked: "what makes FAMILY BUSINESS a fine
example of single subject reality programming is that Glasser seems like a
smart, good-looking guy who has a sense of humor about his place in the
world. Juxtapose alter ego Seymour Butts with Lila...toss in Cousin
Stevie...and you've got a winner."
The show is executive produced by Jay Blumenfield, Emmy
Award(R)-winning producer Allison Grodner, who is also part of the team
behind the CBS series "Big Brother" and Tony Marsh.
