Rodney is an American television sitcom created by Ric Swartzlander in which recording artist and comedian Rodney Carrington plays his alter ego Rodney Hamilton - a smart, down-to-earth guy from Tulsa, Oklahoma with a good heart and a candid view on life - who endures a series of dead-end jobs by day while practising his passion for stand-up comedy in dive bars at night.

The series aired in the USA on ABC from 21 September, 2004 to 6 June, 2006. There are 44 half-hour episodes in two seasons, although six episodes remained unaired in the USA.

Season 1 aired on Comedy Central from 2 April to 1 May, 2013. New episodes broadcast daily at 18h50, on weekdays. There are 22 episodes in the first season.

Synopsis

Standup comedian Rodney Carrington stars as Rodney Hamilton, a down-to-earth guy's guy who, with his own heartland intelligence, speaks the truth.

In the middle of real, everyday America, Rodney's life revolves around two things: his family - wife Trina and their two boys, Jack and Bo - and his horrible job at a fibreglass plant. He also makes time for his longtime friend, Barry, and his man-hungry sister-in-law, Charlie, a frequent visitor to the Hamilton house.

There's never time for life to get dull for Rodney. He's not afraid to walk into a department store naked on a dare. Not afraid to take credit for flowers someone else sent his wife. Not afraid to get between his fighting boys. Not afraid to tell his wife he's ready to make standup comedy his career...

Okay, he's a little afraid of that.

One matter they do agree on is the fact that, although they may not have much in the way of material things, they are rich in the love of their family and friends.

In the meantime, aside from raising a healthy, happy family with the only woman he's ever loved, Rodney is going to figure out how to find happiness pursuing his dream while being the best damn husband and dad he knows how to be.

Rodney stars Rodney Carrington as Rodney Hamilton, Jennifer Aspen as Trina Hamilton, Amy Pietz as Charlie, Nick Searcy as Barry, Oliver Davis as Jack Hamilton and Matthew Josten as Bo Hamilton.

Ric Swartzlander is the creator and executive producer of the series. David Himelfarb is the executive producer. The series is produced by Himmel Films, Rude Mood Productions and Touchstone Television.
