Variety reported that Jason Alexander’s new series Hit the Road has been given a straight-to-series order from AT&T’s Audience Network.
Jason Alexander is of course a familiar face from the Seinfeld television show, where he played George Constanza from 1989 to 1998. He’s accomplished work as an actor, comedian, and director, even receiving a handful of wins (but dozens of nominations) for his time on Seinfeld.
Now Alexander will pull double-duty as executive producer and star for Hit the Road, a show about a man named Ken Swallow pursuing his dream of music while touring the open road. Peter Tilden and Dean Craig created the series alongside Jason Alexander.
“I am so honored by the faith and support we’ve been given by AT&T Audience Network and our producing partners. We are so excited to bring this funny, fearless, chaotic musical family to life. And we are so grateful for the opportunity,” Alexander noted.
Chris Long, who heads the Audience Network, also spoke highly of the season order: “Working with a comedic genius like Jason Alexander is truly an honor and we know our viewers are going to fall in love with their quirky and hysterical twist on the modern-day Partridge Family. Jason has been responsible for some of the most memorable comedic moments in TV history and we are thrilled that they are joining the Audience Network family as we continue to develop and grow our original programming platform.”
Hit the Road has confirmed that its first season will consist of ten episodes for the Audience Network.
