Comedy Collars More 'Blue Collar'


Comedy Central has signed a wide-ranging deal with its Blue Collar comedians, including a pilot pick-up for The Naked Trucker.

Parallel Entertainment, which represents Jeff Foxworthy, Bill Engvall, Ron White and Dan Whitney (Larry the Cable Guy), have struck a deal for a third Blue Collar Comedy Tour movie--the first two films set ratings records for the cable net--several specials and a pilot pickup, The Naked Trucker.

The pilot is based on the L.A. stage show, The Naked Trucker and T-Bones Show with Dave "Gruber" Allen (Freaks and Geeks) and David Koechner (Saturday Night Live).
