Plot Synopsis

HOLLYWOOD HILLBILLIES is a half-hour, fish-out-of-water reality series that follows YouTube sensation Michael 'The Angry Ginger' Kittrell and his family, as they move from rural Grayson, Georgia to Hollywood to follow their dreams. Michael became known as 'The Angry Ginger' after he made a viral YouTube video protesting how SOUTH PARK claimed redheads have no soul. Having saved his money over four years from the more than 150 million views for all of his videos, Michael has moved his family to Los Angeles. Joining Michael are: his grandmother, Delores Hughes, known as 'Mema'; his aunt, Dee Dee Peters; his uncle, John Cox; and Dee Dee's boyfriend, Paul Conlon. In the series premiere, Michael's manager lands him an audition for a ginger ale company, but his Mema won't let him go alone. In subsequent episodes, this outrageous country family sometimes adapts to Hollywood, but often tries to impose its beliefs and values on the City of Angels. After a four-month break, HOLLYWOOD HILLBILLIES returned with new episodes on Tuesday, August 5, 2014 from 9-10pm ET/PT, as ReelzChannel aired back-to-back new episodes. In the night's first episode, "Homeless Hillbillies," the family struggles to find an affordable new place to live after being stuck living in a motel for the past month. Meanwhile, Michael and the family meet with David Weintraub and Ray J about Michael.s record deal, and discover they don't see eye to eye. Then, in the night's second new episode, "Hillbilly Hip Hop," Michael tries to write a hit single but finds it's more difficult than he expected, so his manager brings in some industry heavyweights to help. Meanwhile, Paul has a dental emergency. On Saturday, April 11, 2015 at 9pm ET/10pm PT, ReelzChannel premiered the third season of HOLLYWOOD HILLBILLIES. In the season opener, "When the Mema's Away...," Mema travels back to Georgia for her 50th high school reunion while David Weintraub and Ray J plan a publicity stunt to make Michael's music video go viral -- and Mema returns to find a rude surprise. This season also includes Dee Dee and Paul's wedding.
