getTV Acquires Jeff Foxworthy, Bill Engvall Sitcoms; Entourage Star Heads to Hallmark Movie

The Jeff Foxworthy Show

getTV delivers a night of laughs with an all-new Tuesday lineup featuring The Jeff Foxworthy Show and The Bill Engvall Show, airing every Tuesday starting on October 11. The weekly block will highlight three back-to-back episodes of The Jeff Foxworthy Show from 8 p.m. ET to 9:30 p.m. ET, followed by three back-to-back episodes of The Bill Engvall Show from 9:30 p.m. ET to 11 p.m. ET. Each week kicks off with a trio of episodes of the 1995 sitcom The Jeff Foxworthy Show at 8 p.m. ET, starring beloved funnyman Jeff Foxworthy as a southern air conditioner repairman feeling hilariously out of his element in a small Indiana town. The show also features Haley Joel Osment in an early television role as Foxworthy's young son Matt, four years before his breakthrough role in The Sixth Sense. Jay Mohr, Bill Engvall, and Jerry Maguire standout Jonathan Lipnicki were added to the cast in season two.

The Bill Engvall Show

Then, stay tuned for three episodes of the 2007 sitcom The Bill Engvall Show at 9:30 p.m. ET, starring comedian Bill Engvall as a family counselor who is rarely able to understand his own family. In addition to co-stars Tim Meadows and Nancy Travis, the series notably featured a then-17-year-old Jennifer Lawrence in one of the Oscar®-winner's earliest starring roles, stealing the show as Engvall's teenage daughter, Lauren.


Hallmark Channel

Adrian Grenier (Entourage) and Amy Smart (Justified) have been cast as the leads in A Worthwhile Life, a new, original movie premiering on Hallmark Channel in 2017. Production is set to begin this month in and around Salt Lake City, Utah. Mary Landers (Smart) is a young woman whose hope for an engagement is unexpectedly upended when her fiancé tells her he is looking for someone more adventurous. On her train ride home, she trades glances with James Fielding (Grenier), a handsome stranger who appears to be the larger than life adventurer she is not. As throngs of shoppers exit the train all that is left of the mystery man is the phone he accidentally left behind. Mary endeavors to return it to him and finds herself on a journey of self-discovery. In the process she realizes that she may not be so different from the intriguing man who crossed her path after all.
