My Name Is EarlEARL (Jason Lee) has taken one too many wrong turns on the highway of life. However, a twist of fate turns his life into a tailspin of life-renewing events. Earl won a small lottery and, after an epiphany, he is determined to transform his good fortune into a life-changing event as he sets out to right all the wrongs from his past.
In its inaugural season, MY NAME IS EARL received the People’s Choice Award, two TCA Awards, a SAG Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series and Emmys® for executive producers Garcia and Buckland for writing and directing, respectively.
Joining Earl along his quest to cleanse his karma are a few dimwitted friends: hapless brother RANDY (Ethan Suplee) and the very sexy CATALINA (Nadine Velazquez). Even DARNELL (Eddie Steeples), the owner of the Crab Shack where Earl drinks beer, offers his support. But it’s Earl’s ex-wife JOY (Jaime Pressly) who won’t lift a finger to help unless there’s something in it for her.
Despite his seemingly limited intelligence, Earl is oddly effective -- and the top-rated freshman comedy series, like Earl himself, has a voice and style all its own. Created and written by Greg Garcia, MY NAME IS EARL is executive produced by Garcia and Bobby Bowman. The series is produced by Amigos de Garcia and Twentieth Century Fox Television and is distributed by Twentieth Century Fox Television Distribution.
