AT&T Audience Network has ordered a 10-episode second season of its critically praised original comedy series Loudermilk. Production is scheduled to begin this July in Vancouver with the premiere slated for fall.
Created by writer-director Peter Farrelly (Dumb And Dumber, There’s Something About Mary) and Bobby Mort, the Emmy-winning scribe from The Colbert Report, Season 1 of Loudermilk 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.
Ron Livingston (Office Space) stars as Sam Loudermilk along with Will Sasso (Happy Gilmore) as Ben, Laura Mennell (Watchmen) as Allison and Anja Savcic (I Love You, Beth Cooper) as Claire.
Farrelly and Mort will be back for Season 2 as writer-creators. They’ll executive produce with Mark Burg and producer Big Branch Productions’ Bart Peters. Farrelly also will 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.”
