The Liberal Redneck is getting himself a sitcom.

Courtesy of Deadline:

Fox has given a script commitment plus penalty to a half-hour single-camera comedy starring comedian Trae Crowder, best known for his stage persona the Liberal Redneck. Inspired by Crowder’s life, the untitled project hails from Warner Bros. TV and Rob Thomas’ studio-based Spondoolie Productions.

The comedy will be written by Crowder and John Enbom, who co-created the cult Starz comedy series Party Down with Thomas, Dan Etheridge and Paul Rudd. In the Fox show, worlds collide when Trae, based on Crowder’s Liberal Redneck character, returns to his conservative Tennessee hometown to start a job at an energy research facility with his California-born wife in tow.

Before you all freak out that this is on Fox, remember that Fox Broadcasting has very little in common with Fox News, and that they are the home of Glee and The Simpsons.

Having said that I am not sure how the show will do because not all sitcoms based around a comedian's stage act workout as well as Seinfeld.

For instance, I find "The King of Queens" and "Everybody Hates Chris" completely unwatchable, and though I loved John Mulaney on stage when they canceled his short-lived TV career  it seemed like a mercy killing.

Personally was hoping that Crowder would find a spot on Comedy Central as I thought that station could use a little of his redneck sensibilities.

In fact, he could have been a great addition to the Daily Show as one of their correspondents.

Well, I will withhold judgment until I see the show.

I certainly think that Crowder has the talent, so all he needs is the proper vehicle.

    Exclusive: Face-to-face with Edward Snowden in Moscow on Trump, Putin and dwindling hopes of a presidential pardon

    In an exclusive interview in Russia with Yahoo Global News Anchor Katie Couric, Edward Snowden, the fugitive whistleblower who leaked information about U.S. surveillance activities, says he is “kind of encouraged” by the idea that Russian President Vladimir Putin might return him to the U.S. to stand trial because that would show the world he’s not a spy and Russia “doesn’t own me.”

    But he also acknowledged he isn’t eager to return home to face U.S. justice, saying such a prospect “would be a threat to my liberty and to my life.”

    Speaking for 90 minutes in a Moscow hotel room, Snowden — calm and completely unrepentant — also took new swipes at top U.S. intelligence officials, claiming they have accused him of damaging national security only because they were “embarrassed” by his disclosures of classified National Security Agency documents and worried about their “reputations.”

    Those comments drew an angry rebuke Sunday from the Obama administration’s former top counterterrorism official. “Snowden is delusional,” said Matt Olsen, the former director of the National Counterterrorism Center, when read excerpts of the interview.

    “It wasn’t so many years ago that people were saying, ‘This guy’s a Russian spy,’” said Snowden when asked by Couric how “nervous” he was about the possibility of losing his Russian sanctuary and being sent home to face criminal charges of theft of government property and violations of the Espionage Act.

    “But countries don’t give up their spies. And if my recent criticism of the Russian government’s Internet policies, criticisms of their human rights record, have been so severe that even my greatest critics in the intelligence community are now saying, ‘Oh, yeah, he’s a liability, they wanna get him out of there,’ that’s a vindication.”

    “Vindication of what?” Couric asked him.

    “The fact that I’m independent, the fact that I have always worked on behalf of the United States, and the fact that Russia doesn’t own me,” Snowden replied. “In fact, the Russian government may see me as sort of a liability.

      Putin is going to return Snowden to President Trump in January. So hold tight traitor.

      Sarah Palin since you are such a passionate avid Immoral Minority reader, what's your opinion about a Snowden Obama pardon?

    3. Who cares?

      NO way he should get a pardon. No free pass for traitors.

      It's obvious he realizes his usefulness as a propaganda tool is over and Putin is going to give him to Trump as a gift.

      Snowden is trying to spin the media for sympathy for when he is sent back, arrested and goes on trial.


      (Yeah, Trump won't give the masses Hillary, he'l give them Snowden.)

    Eric Trump claims Wisconsin recount killed ‘at least 5,000 children’ — and gets pounded on Twitter

    Eric Trump, the son of President-elect Donald Trump, asserted over the weekend that “at least 5,000 children” had died due to an effort to verify the election outcome in Wisconsin.

    In a tweet on Sunday, Eric Trump said that the “sad truth” was that “the cost Of Stein/Clinton’s #Wisconsin vote recount could have saved at least 5,000 children’s lives.”....

    The tweet included a link to a Forbes column by conservative writer Chris Conover, who argues that Green Party candidate Jill Stein should have redirected the $3.5 million spent on the recount to malaria prevention for children.

    Many commenters on Twitter fired back at Trump, noting that thousands of children could also be saved with the millions of dollars the U.S. government is paying for Donald Trump’s security in New York. ....

      Oh my, Eric Trump should learn a lesson from Sarah Palin.

      When you don't know shit don't say anything.

      When Sarah Palin opens her trap, America pounces on her like there's no tomorrow. Barstool learned that lesson the hard way. The Sarah Palin daughter who graduated from hair school college learned that lesson from watching how stupid her mom is.

    2. How many children could be saved by that $ 1 million A DAY that New York has to spend protecting the First Twat? How many could be saved with that $3 million the Secret Service is going to have to pay to rent space in Trump Tower?

      How much has the Trump Foundation spent to help in the fight against Malaria?

      That money isn't Jill Stein's to spend however she sees fit. It's OUR money we donated for one purpose and one purpose only. To do a recount to certify an election or uncover fraud.

      I understand at least one machine so far has been found to have been tampered with. Before the recount a number of votes for Trump were already discounted.

      So Eric can go FUCK HIMSELF. Guess he doesn't have the smarts to be press secretary after all.

    "“The Presidency tends, year by year, to go to such men. As democracy is perfected, the office represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. We move toward a lofty ideal. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart’s desire at last, and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.”

    That day, sadly, has come and the “plain folks,” Sarah Palin’s “real Americans,” have gotten their wish. "

    "Trump can’t take satire. It is up to us to show democracy can. And will."

      These aren't "plain folks" they are the bottom of the barrel.

      The president of USA should be someone to look up to and inspire people to better themselves, not drag us down to the worst of society.

    I've been liking Tim Allen on Last Man Standing. I think it's produced by Comedy Channel but it's on Hallmark and Up too.
