DESCRIPTION: (from CMT's press release, June 2013) It's no hoax that Sunday evenings on CMT are about to be filled with more laughs and surprises when the all-new series HILLBILLIES FOR HIRE premieres Sunday, July 14, at 9:00 p.m., ET/PT, immediately following a new episode of DOG AND BETH: ON THE HUNT. HILLBILLIES FOR HIRE follows perennial pranksters Jeremiah and his best friend, Big Ox, as they use their backwoods ingenuity to concoct the most outrageous pranks imaginable. Jeremiah and Big Ox, well-known for pulling pranks on their family and friends, also run a for-hire prank business in Polk County, Fla., making themselves available to anyone who feels the need to enact a little "redneck revenge" on someone they know. Whether it's pranking a person who's afraid of the water by pretending that their boat is sinking in an alligator-infested swamp, or creating an actual pigsty in a friend's apartment because he never cleans up, all of Jeremiah and Big Ox's pranks are done with the intention of having some good-hearted fun. The comical duo prove throughout the series that they're willing to do whatever it takes to pull off the most memorable pranks and hijinks. HILLBILLIES FOR HIRE will premiere in its regular timeslot with new back-to-back episodes at 8 p.m., ET/PT beginning Sunday, July 21.
