The Radkes is a six-episode, half-hour unscripted family sitcom that centers around Melissa Radke and her big, loud, Southern family. They live in the small East Texas town where she was born and raised: Lufkin, Texas. This outspoken mom will give you her opinion on almost anything, even if you didn’t ask. She’s funny, charming and the life of every party…especially the ones she wasn’t invited to. Melissa and her husband David love their two children Remi, 12, and Rocco, 9 unapologetically, but when it comes to dealing with middle-school drop-off or teaching her children sex education… Melissa is constantly apologizing! She’s a pretty big personality for such a small town, but ask Melissa why she loves Lufkin and she’s quick to tell you: “Because the barbecue is better and the babysitting is free.”
