Audience Orders 10 Episodes of Comedy 'Hit the Road' Starring Jason Alexander

Audience has given a straight-to-series order to original comedy series Hit the Road starring Emmy nominee Jason Alexander (Seinfeld). The order is for 10 episodes, which will debut in 2018.

The comedy centers on a dysfunctional family of would-be rock stars who travel the country in a cramped tour bus searching for fame and fortune. Alexander will play Ken Swallow, the family patriarch.

Peter Tilden and Dean Craig created the series. They will executive produce with Alexander, Christopher Long, Bart Peters, David Guillod, Mark Burg, Melissa Aouate and Henrik Bastin. Primary Wave Entertainment and Fabrik Entertainment will produce.

"I am so honored by the faith and support we've been given by AT&T Audience Network and our producing partners," said Alexander. "We are so excited to bring this funny, fearless, chaotic musical family to life. And we are so grateful for the opportunity."

"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, said Christopher Long, Head of Audience Network. "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."
