AT&T AUDIENCE Network Brings Back Original Comedy Series "Loudermilk" For 3rd Season
TV Veterans Peter Farrelly and Bobby Mort Return as Executive Producers
Production to Kickoff Spring 2019
EL SEGUNDO, Calif., Dec. 5, 2018 - AT&T AUDIENCE Network has picked up its original comedy series "Loudermilk" for a 3rd season. Production for the 10 30-minute episodes is scheduled to begin in spring in Vancouver with the premiere launching later in the year.
Big Branch Productions will continue to co-produce the scripted series.
Peter Farrelly ("Green Book," "Dumb and Dumber," "There's Something About Mary") and Emmy(R) Award-winning writer Bobby Mort ("The Colbert Report") will serve as writer-creators and executive producers. Farrelly, Mort, AT&T AUDIENCE Network's Shane Elrod and Kate Regan and Big Branch Productions' Bart Peters will also serve as executive producers.
"I couldn't be happier going back to work on the third season of Loudermilk," said Farrelly. "I'm working with hilarious and talented actors on the most writer-friendly network in town."
"I can't wait to dive back into Sam Loudermilk's world and the dysfunctional family of misfits he's surrounded himself with," said Mort. "If Sam wasn't sober, I'm sure he'd be popping open bottles of champagne to celebrate. I'm looking forward to working with Pete, Big Branch, and AT&T AUDIENCE Network on season 3!"
"Whether it's his blunt attitude or no-nonsense approach to life, fans have fallen for Sam Loudermilk," said Daniel York, chief content officer and senior executive vice president at AT&T. "We're looking forward to bringing the show back for another season and can't wait to see what comedic masterminds Peter and Bobby have in store."
"With the extraordinary comedic vision of Peter and Bobby, and their collaboration with our incredibly talented cast and our great friends at AT&T AUDIENCE Network, Loudermilk fans are in for an unforgettable 3rd season," said Bart Peters.
After a relapse in New Orleans and a falling out with his best friend and sponsor, Ben (Will Sasso), Loudermilk (Ron Livingston) is back in Seattle for season 2 trying to piece his world back together. With his "Sober Friends" meeting hijacked, a messy new relationship, and a stumbling start back into writing, Loudermilk is forced to do a little soul searching (which he hates) and decide what he wants from life. While he still has the ability to help those around him, Loudermilk just may find that the person who needs the most work is himself.
"Loudermilk" seasons 1 and 2 episodes are available OnDemand on all DIRECTV platforms. AT&T AUDIENCE Network is available on DIRECTV Ch. 239 and via live streaming on the DIRECTV app and DIRECTV NOW and WatchTV.
