– Joey+Rory are launching their own TV show, "The Joey + Rory Show" on the RD-TV network starting today.
Filmed entirely at their farm and in their community of Pottsville, Tenn., the first 13 episodes will invite the viewer into their small-town world with a mix of live performances of songs from their third album, "His and Hers" - which hits stores July 31, recipes from their family-owned Marcy Jo's café, behind-the-scenes looks into their life together, intimate acoustic performances from the duo and a select group of singers and songwriters that inspire them.
The couple converted a barn at their farm into a fully working sound-stage where they can write, film, edit and deliver the entire series with just the help of a small team of friends/collaborators collectively calling themselves Milkhouse Media.
"We don't have a TV in our home, partly because it's hard to find good family programs to watch any more...so rather than just complain about it, we're trying to create some good programming that everyone can enjoy," Rory says. "Just like the records you make, you never know if this show will reach hundreds of people, or millions - either way, the journey making it together is extraordinary."
The show will in time include vintage TV commercials from the past, and local characters and guests from their community - folks Joey+Rory interact with on a daily basis - will also be highlighted.
"The Joey+Rory Show" is scheduled to air every Friday at 9 p.m. Eastern on RFT-TV. Episodes will re-air Saturdays at 7 a.m. and Mondays at 2 p.m. and midnight. All times Eastern.
