Trae Crowder AKA the Liberal Redneck and the WellRED banner that includes comedians Corey Forrester and Drew Morgan might have just scored their own show. They and writer Andrew Reich have just sold a comedy about three friends from the sticks in the South (ostensibly, we’re guessing it’s a semi-autobiographical single camera comedy).
It does seem as though networks are aiming for sitcoms that will appeal across the country and the aisle and maybe Crowder, Forrester, and Morgan are the ones to make that happen.
ABC has picked up on Trae Crowderand WellRED Comedy’s growing popularity as “liberal redneck comedians”. Crowder, Drew Morgan, and Corey Ryan Forrester have indeed carved out that niche quite well with a successful nationwide tour, podcast, and more.
What’s also intriguing about here is that John Enborn, the creator of Party Down, is co-writing the project. The premise of moving back to Tennessee for a job and juggling familial responsibilities and Southern heritage might be straight forward enough, but we are curious how Trae and Enborn might add their personal angle to a traditional sitcom formula.
