Charlie Harper's Malibu lifestyle is interrupted when his brother and nephew stay with him. Briskly written and performed, the sitcom had fun spoofing Charlie Sheen's bad-boy reputation (which ultimately led to his exit from the series) and Jon Cryer's nervous energy.
Set against the backdrop of a major drug cartel bust, the series follows two low-level cops who have spent far too much time in a car together, two criminals who are largely kept in the dark, two dispatch workers who haven't really clicked and two Mexican tunnelers who are in way too small a space considering they've only just met.
An easygoing ensemble comedy set in the sleepy Arkansas town of Evening Shade and revolving around the high school's football coach, a former pro played by Burt Reynolds, who won a Best Actor Emmy in 1991, and was also an occasional writer and director. Michael Jeter also won an Emmy (Best Supporting Actor, in 1992). Arkansas natives Linda Bloodworth-Thomason and Harry Thomason were the executive producers.
