Rodney is an American television sitcom that was shown on ABC from September 21, 2004, to June 6, 2006. Ric Swartzlander was the creator and executive producer of the comedy series. David Himelfarb was the executive producer.



The show's story revolves around the character Rodney Hamilton (Rodney Carrington) who wishes to leave his horrible job in Tulsa, Oklahoma, to become a stand-up comedian.

Rodney's life revolves around his family - his wife Trina (Jennifer Aspen) and his sons Jack (Oliver Davis) and Bo (Matthew Josten). He also spends a lot of time with his best friend Barry Martin (Nick Searcy) who constantly tries to escape his wife Genie, and with his crazy sister-in-law Charlie (Amy Pietz).

One recurring character is Trina's father, Carl (Mac Davis), who is constantly lending or giving them money, much to Rodney's dismay.

Another recurring character is police officer Gerald Bob (Jon Reep), who has a sexual relationship with Charlie.
