Its logline is as follows: "Inspired by the long-running Texas Monthly column, THE TEXANIST centers on Dave (Thomas Haden Church), an opinionated Austin-area radio show host who calls 'em like he sees 'em, dispensing advice to Texas natives and newcomers, alike, on what he knows to be the true Texas Way of life. But the Texas Way is changing, and now Dave's job is becoming much more complicated. Listening to advice from his wife, family and co-workers, Dave must now become the arbiter of which changes to embrace and which to reject, possibly opening his mind in the process... just, not that much."
