Billy Ray Cyrus in Still the King comedy series trailer

Posted on

CMT

Forget the mullet — Billy Ray Cyrus wants his daughter back in the first trailer for his new CMT comedy series Still the King.

Cyrus spoofs his own background as Burnin’ Vernon, a once wildly successful country star. But where Cyrus has managed to maintain his celebrity thanks to projects with his daughter Miley, Vernon is resigned to small gigs and quick schemes to make money and doesn’t have much of a relationship with his estranged daughter.

As the trailer shows, the series will follow Vernon as he finds bizarre ways to make money in order to continue making his child support payments and bond with the teenage daughter he didn’t know he had. Some of these get-cash-fast plans include Vernon lying about being a preacher, pawning church property, and taking a gig as an Elvis impersonator.

Still the King premieres Sunday, June 12, at 9:00 p.m. ET on CMT.
