A close-knit family fights for justice against a corrupt political system in the Deep South. Sounds a little heavy doesn't it? But throw in two hunks, a hottie and the most amazing stunt car this side of the Batmobile and you've got a formula for one of television's most enduring and endearing shows of all time.
The Dukes of Hazzard was not only a hit, it was a phenomenon and we examine its impact while celebrating its series premiere on CMT with CMT Inside Fame: The Dukes of Hazzard. The "Dukes" story is told through interviews with stars John Schneider, Tom Wopat, Catherine Bach and James Best along with guest stars, crew members, fans and critics who offer their opinions on the show's remarkable success. It's a fond and funny look back on this beloved evergreen program.
However, it's also a look ahead, not only to the show's return to television but to the big screen as well. Slated for a July 2005 release, The Dukes of Hazzard Movie will feature Seann William Scott and Johnny Knoxville in the roles of Bo and Luke, Jessica Simpson as Daisy, Willie Nelson as Uncle Jessie and Burt Reynolds as the bumbling Boss Hogg. They'll all be there along with Sheriff Roscoe, Cooter, Enos and Flash as The General Lee rides again on CMT Inside Fame: The Dukes of Hazzard.moreless
