"MIKE JUDGE PRESENTS: TALES FROM THE TOUR BUS," ANIMATED CINEMAX SERIES CHRONICLING SOME OF MUSIC'S MOST ECCENTRIC CHARACTERS, TO RETURN FOR SECOND SEASON LATER THIS YEAR WITH A FOCUS ON FUNK

MIKE JUDGE PRESENTS: TALES FROM THE TOUR BUS, chronicling the exploits of legendary music artists, will return for a second season later this year, it was announced today by Kary Antholis, president, HBO Miniseries and CINEMAX Programming. While the first season of the show spotlighted country musicians, the new season will focus on funk music greats, including James Brown, George Clinton and Bootsy Collins.

Marking a return to his roots in animation and as a musician, Judge ("King of the Hill"; "Beavis and Butt-Head"; Emmy(R) nominee for HBO's "Silicon Valley") co-created, narrates and serves as an executive producer on the series, which recounts the raucous adventures of these musicians, as told by those who knew them best.

TALES FROM THE TOUR BUS features animated interviews with former bandmates, friends and other erstwhile associates, who share uncensored anecdotes about these artists, brought to life by animated reenactments, and woven together with live-action archival performance footage and photos.

Debuting on CINEMAX in Sept. 2017, the first season of TALES FROM THE TOUR BUS spotlighted notorious country music legends, including Johnny Paycheck, Jerry Lee Lewis, George Jones and Tammy Wynette, Billy Joe Shaver, Waylon Jennings and Blaze Foley.

The Los Angeles Times described the series as "addictive," while Decider called the show "unlike anything you've ever seen before," Rolling Stone hailed it as "informative as it is hilariously raw" and A.V. Club termed the series "storytelling gold."

Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and Parliament-Funkadelic founder George Clinton will serve as consulting producer. Returning for season two are executive producers Glen Zipper and Sean Stuart; joining the show are writer Mark Monroe as co-executive producer and screenwriter-producer and veteran music journalist Nelson George ("Finding The Funk," HBO's "Life Support") as consulting producer.

MIKE JUDGE PRESENTS: TALES FROM THE TOUR BUS was created by Mike Judge, Richard Mullins and Dub Cornett; executive produced by Mike Judge, Glen Zipper and Sean Stuart; composer, John Frizzell.
