HANK IS "KING OF THE HILL" AS THE SERIES REACHES ITS 250TH MILESTONE EPISODE
The Emmy Award-winning animated series KING OF THE HILL will celebrate its 250th milestone episode in May 2009. The 13th season of KING OF THE HILL, featuring Hank Hill, his family and their neighbors in the fictional suburb of Arlen, TX, will premiere Sunday, Sept. 28 (8:30-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
The 250th milestone episode, "Serves Me Right for Giving General George S. Patton the Bathroom Key," takes place a year after the death of Hank's father, Cotton Hill. In the episode, Cotton's widow, Didi (Ashley Gardner), delivers Hank (Mike Judge) a box full of his father's prized possessions including one last crazy Cotton request to have his ashes flushed down a toilet located in an old bar and once used by General George S. Patton. When Hank enlists Bill (Stephen Root) and Dale's (Johnny Hardwick) help in his "flushing Cotton" mission, the guys' bickering gets them kicked out of the bar. When Hank snaps, his friends come together to help him fulfill his father's final wish.
Mike Judge and Greg Daniels are co-creators/executive producers and John Altschuler, Dave Krinsky, Jim Dauterive, Garland Testa, Michael Rotenberg and Howard Klein are executive producers for KING OF THE HILL, which is a 20th Century Fox Television Production in association with Deedle-Dee Productions, Judgemental Films and 3 Arts Entertainment.
