Channel 4, Fridays at 10pm
“A Slam Dunk Critical Hit”; Wall Street Journal
Fresh from rave reviews in the US this brand new comedy arrives on Channel 4. All-around loser and petty crook Earl (Jason Lee, Almost Famous) has taken one too many wrong turns on the highway of life. However, a twist of fate turns his life into a tailspin of life-renewing events. Earl wins a small lottery, and, after an epiphany, he is determined to transform his good fortune into a life-changing event as he sets out to right all the wrongs from his past.
Joining Earl along his quest to cleanse his karma are a few dim-witted friends: hapless brother Randy (Ethan Suplee, Cold Mountain) and the very sexy Catalina (Nadine Velazquez). Even Darnell (Eddie Steeples), the owner of the Crab Shack where Earl drinks beer, offers his support. But it's Earl's ex-wife Joy (Jamie Pressly) who won't lift a finger to help unless there's something in it for her.
