CMT goes Kinky-- Friedman, that is

Categories: Television

In keeping with his campaign slogan, "Why the hell not?", cable channel CMT previews a new reality series called Go Kinky, which will document Kinky Friedman's run for governor of Texas. Friedman, a musician, mystery writer, and author of the country classic "They Ain't Makin' Jews Like Jesus Anymore," will be featured in weekly episodes that follow him on the campaign trail. (A typical Friedman stump speech includes the promise, "Make me the state's first Jewish governor and I'll bring the speed limit down to 54.95.") His independent campaign is gaining some momentum-- Willie Nelson just performed at a fundraiser, and Jesse Ventura is one of Kinky's informal advisors-- and if the pilot episodes go over as expected, CMT will make the show a regular feature next year.
