The History Channel is teaming up with Blue Collar Comedy star Larry the Cable Guy for a new series. The comedian, known for his redneck alter ego, will host Only in America with Larry the Cable Guy, a new 13-episode series premiering later this year, the network said Wednesday.
In Only in America With Larry the Cable Guy, Larry (real name Daniel Whitney) explores the country, “immersing himself in different lifestyles, jobs and hobbies that celebrate the American experience.”
He’ll also reveal bits of history from wherever he happens to be in each episode.
“Larry the Cable Guy wows audiences across the country with his unique brand of humor and quirky take on America,” History president/GM Nancy Dubuc said in a statement. “We are thrilled to welcome him to History in what promises to be a genre-busting series that takes a look at history like you’ve never seen it before.”
