Nine of these 30-second “Family Moments” teaser clips are out so far, serving to intro viewers to Billy Bob (Stephen Kramer Glickman) and his down home hick cohorts. The whole world comes out of the altered mind of writer Todd Goldman, most known for his clothing line David & Goliath. Naturally, we’ve already confirmed that a Trailer Trash merchandising line is in the works.
We also confirmed that YouTube star Philip DeFranco has been tapped to voice a handful of yet-to-be named characters in the series. Other confirmed cast include country singer Laura Bell Bundy as Peggy Sue and Sam Riegel as Billy Bob’s brother Lite Beer. hud:sun Media’s Max Benator, who recently launched Genuine Ken on Hulu, is creatively producing.
Early glimpses at Trailer Trash seem to gyrate between King of the Hill and South Park, though it’s not clear if it aims to be as intellectually relevant as either. There’s a hint of Family Guy—the show that remains the most popular TV series on Hulu—and its middle class satire. But so far there’s no sign of a Brian Griffin character, a conduit for the higher-brow social commentary that gives Family Guy its timelessness.
Either way, there’s a good chance it will get a decent first run on Hulu, which will be releasing two episodes per week starting on March 7. It’s fare is raunchy, and we’re hearing it may get the TV-MA rating on the site, meaning users will have to be logged in to verify that they are over 18.
The real raunchy teasers for Trailer Trash might in fact be the @billybob Twitter stream. While I’m normally not a fan of in-character tweeting, this one goes for it, shamelessly.
