American cable channel USA Network has greenlit Chrisley Knows Best (working title), a comedy reality series following an extremely wealthy family living in Atlanta.

The eight-episode series is set to premiere on March 11 on USA Network, while sister network E! will air encore presentations beginning on March 16.

Chrisley Knows Best finds the comedy in the family of Atlanta-based self-made multimillionaire Todd Chrisley. Along with his wife Julie and five children, the family live in a 30,000 square foot home and the series aims to capture the issues and drama of being a Chrisley.

Maverick TV and All3Media America coproduce the series, with Adam Greener, Jim Sayer, and Stephanie Bloch Chambers serving as executive producers. Annie Kate Pons serves as supervising producer.

Chrisley Knows Best is a broad family comedy that is a modern version of Father Knows Best with the volume turned way up,” said Heather Olander, senior VP of alternative programming for USA Network. “While their lifestyle is over-the-top and their personalities are larger-than-life, the Chrisleys are a very close-knit family who are refreshingly honest and genuinely funny.”
