Big & Rich Working on Reality Show With Mark Wahlberg
Big & Rich may be coming to television as early as this fall. The country duo are the latest singers to receive their own reality television series, thanks to Mark Wahlberg.
During an interview with Taste of Country ahead of their set at Country Jam 2018, Big Kenny and John Rich revealed the exciting news.
"Would you guys watch a show if it's called 'Living Big & Rich?'" Rich asked a crowd of fans in front of him. "We became friends with this actor named Mark Wahlberg. He's like, 'Man, you guys are crazy. I love Cowboy Troy' and he liked our whole thing. We're actually working on a TV series right now and Mark Wahlberg is our executive director so it's pretty cool."
Rich further explains that the duo, with the assistance of Cowboy Troy, is currently shooting the television pilot and fans will likely be able to watch the new series this fall. "We're hoping this fall you guys will be clicking on the TV and there it is," he adds.
Big & Rich are far from the only country singers with a reality show. In 2017, Tyler Farr launched his docu-series, titled A Little Too Farr. The series offered onstage and offstage shenanigans of the country singer, whether he was pranking friends, flying an airplane or rocking out for a crowd of fans. The now-concluded show includes 36 episodes, which fans can watch on Complex Networks' go90 channel. And long before she was co-hosting her Emmy-nominated daytime talk show Pickler & Ben, Kellie Pickler was showcasing her funny side on I Love Kellie Pickler broadcast on CMT. The reality series ran for three seasons.
