USA NETWORK GREENLIGHTS COMEDIC NEW SERIES "CHRISLEY KNOWS BEST" (Working Title) SET TO PREMIERE ON TUESDAY, MARCH 11 at 10/9c

Eight-Episode Order Will Follow the Lives of an Extravagant Atlanta Family of Seven Whose Life Is Anything But Ordinary

E! To Broadcast Special Encore Presentations of New Episodes on Sundays at 10:30pm Beginning March 16

NEW YORK -December 18, 2013 - USA Network today ordered eight episodes of the new half-hour original reality series CHRISLEY KNOWS BEST (working title), a real-life family comedy which follows Atlanta-based self-made multimillionaire Todd Chrisley, his devoted wife Julie and their five children who live a seemingly picture-perfect Southern life with everything money can buy. A "patriarch of perfection," Todd runs his family just like his business - with an iron fist - and micromanages every move and expenditure made by each member of the Chrisley clan. But behind the facade of the family's fairy-tale like 30,000 square-foot home, real-life issues and lots of laugh-out-loud drama unfolds.

The series, produced by Maverick TV and All3Media America, is slated to premiere with two back-to-back episodes on USA on Tuesday, March 11 at 10/9c, immediately following the Emmy(R) Award-winning comedy series MODERN FAMILY. In addition, USA's pop culture powerhouse sister network E! will broadcast encore presentations of each new episode on Sundays at 10:30/9:30c beginning March 16. Click here to view a sneak peek of the series.

"CHRISLEY KNOWS BEST is a broad family comedy that is a modern version of Father Knows Best with the volume turned way up" said Heather Olander, senior vice president, alternative programming for USA Network. "While their lifestyle is over-the-top and their personalities are larger-than-life, the Chrisleys are a very close-knit family who are refreshingly honest and genuinely funny."

Todd Chrisley isn't your typical father. Brash and outspoken with a razor sharp southern wit and remarkable ability to dish insults, he keeps the family in line through his tough, and at times brutally honest, form of parenting. When it comes to his family, nothing is off limits - whether it's deciding the hem length of his daughter's sweet 16 dress, placing a tracking device on his children's cars or tossing his son's laptop in the pool because of inappropriate activity. A totally self-made man, Todd believes he has all the answers. As Todd jokes, he's "already been there, done that, bought the tee-shirt."

Meet the rest of the Chrisleys:

Julie: The daughter of a Baptist minister and former Miss Carolina who is Todd's business partner, best friend and a "super mom" who does it all. A strong minded woman, she's not afraid to say what she thinks and spend the family's dough as she sees fit - whether Todd likes it, or not.

Lindsie: The eldest daughter, age 24, stunned Todd by her decision to elope and then five months later surprised him even more with the news that she was expecting her first child. Lindsie butts heads with her dad on a daily basis about her husband and how to parent her baby son, Jackson.

Kyle: The eldest son, 22-year-old Kyle, was once shipped off to Samoa by his parents to work with the Red Cross after he was caught with a married woman. Now he is trying to figure out what to do with his life and is living with a new roomie: Todd's mother, Faye.

Chase: A mini version of Todd, who prides himself on being the favorite child, Chase is always trying to outsmart his dad, which keeps him under Todd's watchful eye at all times. The 17-year-old top athlete charms the ladies with his good looks and his brand new Range Rover.

Savannah: This 16-year-old pageant queen boasts a 4.2 grade point average and would not be caught dead without her make-up and heels. She has grand dreams of being Miss Georgia one day and ultimately becoming a pediatric oncologist. She and older brother Chase are often in cahoots - whether that's in mischief, having each other's back or even dealing with dad.

Grayson: The youngest of the Chrisley clan, at age seven, Grayson is also the most charming and gets away with just about everything. He got his first iPhone at age four and now he has mastered the art of using mom's credit card to buy any toy or app he wants.

THE CHRISLEYS is produced by Maverick TV and All3Media America, with Adam Greener, Jim Sayer, and Stephanie Bloch Chambers serving as executive producers. Annie Kate Pons serves as supervising producer.
