Forming part of the country music and lifestyle cable net’s push into the reality comedy space, Redneck Rehab (8 x 60-minutes) is hosted by comedian and “redneck specialist” Tom Arnold and is produced by Pink Sneakers.

On the show’s first episode, aspiring actor Patrick Higgs is paid a visit by his over-the-top redneck relatives, who are concerned about his love for designer clothing and fancy cars.
