"HOLLYWOOD HILLBILLIES" RETURNS WITH NEW EPISODES IN AUGUST 2014
(Albuquerque, NM) Tuesday, March 25, 2014 - ReelzChannel today announced it has ordered ten new episodes of Hollywood Hillbillies that are set to premiere in August 2014. With new episodes come new hifalutin hillbilly hijinks as Michael looks to capitalize on his record deal with R&B singer Ray J, Dee Dee and Paul plan their wild wedding and Mema gets back to making agent David Weintraub squirm as she protects her beloved grandson Michael. Even though they moved from Georgia to Los Angeles together can the family stay together as pressure mounts on Michael to become his own man and shoot for stardom without Mema and the family in tow? Hollywood Hillbillies is produced for Reelz by Asylum Entertainment.
"We're thrilled with the tremendous viewer response to Hollywood Hillbillies," said Stan E. Hubbard, CEO of Reelz. "Mema, Michael and their family have warmed hearts across America and we look forward to living their next adventures in Tinseltown as they take Hollywood head on."
Hollywood Hillbillies features Internet sensation Michael "The Angry Ginger", his grandma Mema, aunt Dee Dee and her fiancé Paul and uncle John trading in their simple country living in rural Georgia for the bright lights of Hollywood in Michael's quest for showbiz stardom. From Michael's first audition to recording a demo in Ray J's studio, Mema's dating adventures in LA to having dinner and partying with rap star Too $hort, the family took the town by storm with the hope of making Michael's dream a reality.
