The laughs won’t stop for fans of last season’s funniest original comedy Loudermilk as AT&T Audience Network today announced a second season pickup for its latest comedy darling.
Production for the 10 half-hour episodes are scheduled to begin this July in Vancouver with the premiere launching in the fall. The second season will be produced by Big Branch Productions.
Returning for the second season will be comedy veterans Peter Farrelly (Dumb and Dumber, Hall Pass, There’s Something About Mary) and Emmy Award-winning writer Bobby Mort (The Colbert Report) as writer-creators.
Farrelly, Mort, Mark Burg and Big Branch Productions’ Bart Peters will serve as executive producers. Farrelly will also direct select episodes.
"I can’t wait to get the band back together to show the world just how much fun sobriety can be," said Farrelly.
"I'm beyond excited to be working with Peter Farrelly, our talented cast, and the fine folks of the AT&T Audience Network on another season of Loudermilk," said Mort. "I'm really looking forward to making Sam's bad attitude about everything even worse ... but in a good way."
"Since its premiere, both critics and fans have fallen for Sam Loudermilk’s cynical charm," said Dan York, executive vice president and chief content officer, AT&T. "We are thrilled to bring Loudermilk back for another round and can’t wait to see what comedic geniuses Peter Farrelly and Bobby Mort have in store for season 2."
Loudermilk currently stars Golden Globe Nominee Ron Livingston (Office Space) as Sam Loudermilk, Will Sasso (Happy Gilmore) as Ben, Laura Mennell (Watchmen) as Allison and Anja Savcic (I Love You, Beth Cooper) as Claire.
Loudermilk Season 1 centered on Sam Loudermilk, a recovering alcoholic and substance abuse counselor with an extremely bad attitude about, well, everything.
He is unapologetically uncensored and manages to piss off everyone in his life. Although he has his drinking under control, Loudermilk discovers that when your life is a complete mess, getting clean is the easy part.
