CMT today announced Lacey Chabert (“Mean Girls” and “Party of Five”), Leslie David Baker (“The Office”), Kevin Farley (“Eight Crazy Nights” and “The Waterboy”) and Jon Sewell (“Super Zeroes”) as recurring cast members alongside main cast members Madison Iseman (“Laid in America” and Nickelodeon’s “Henry Danger”) and Travis Nicholson (“Super Zeroes” and “Listening”) in its forthcoming single camera scripted comedy Still The King, starring Billy Ray Cyrus and Joey Lauren Adams. The series is currently in production in and around Nashville and will premiere next year.
Still The King features Cyrus as Vernon Brownmule, AKA “Burnin’ Vernon,” a scandal-ridden, washed-up, one-hit-wonder who was kicked out of country music, only to emerge 20 years later as the second best Elvis impersonator around. After crashing into an old country church sign during a drunken bender, he is arrested and sentenced to return and serve as the church’s handyman as part of his parole. Along the way he pretends to be the congregation’s new minister and re-connects with a former one-night-stand (Joey Lauren Adams), when he learns he has a 15-year-old daughter (Madison Iseman) he’s never met.
