Hit the Road cast 

Review of "Hit the Road" 10/27/17 by Suzanne
Airs Tuesdays, 10pm on Audience Network.

This show started out kind of silly, but it got funnier as it went along, and it made me really laugh a lot toward the end. Stick with it and you should enjoy it. Jason Alexander ("Seinfeld") stars as a dad, Ken, who's taken his family out on the road to sing (similar to The Partridge Family or the Osmonds), but they're a very dysfunctional family. This is not a kids' show and has a lot of four letter words. They do a great job of spoofing The Partridges and other groups like that.

Ken and his wife, Meg (Amy Pietz), used to have a minor hit in the 80's, and we learn that she was a bit of a slut. They're desperate to relive their youth and to become rich and famous. The son, Alex (Nick Marini), is a pothead, and the daughter, Ria (Natalie Sharp), is following in mom's footsteps. The younger daughter, Casey (Maddie Dixon-Porrier), is very smart and much more aware of things than she should be. They also have an adopted black son named Jermaine, who doesn't really want to be there. The kids are really funny. You really have to see it to enjoy it. Despite all of their dysfunction, the family keeps trying, no matter what.

If you have DirecTV, then you already have this channel. Otherwise, you'll have to either switch to DirecTV to watch it, or pay for DirectNow  ($35 per month) to get this and many other original shows. They also have a free trial.

Read my interview with Nick Marini (Alex)!


Hit The Road is about the greatest family band you’ve never heard of – yet! This chaotically dysfunctional family of would-be rock/pop stars traverse the country in a cramped tour bus sacrificing privacy, comfort and dignity while in search of fame and fortune. Struggling to navigate their lives and relationships while juggling what’s best for the family versus what’s best for the band, they invariably end up making very unfortunate decisions. Yet nothing will stop them from claiming their rightful place in pop history.
