USA Network, best known for dramas and wrestling,  is entering the reality world already well worn by VH1, A&E, History, Bravo and dozens of other networks and one of its first shows follows an Atlanta multimillionaire Todd Chrisley.

(Here’s an updated story on Chrisley. The show drew about 1 million viewers in the opening episodes Tuesday.)

Here’s how Hollywood Reporter (which broke the story) described the show:

The series follows the brash and outspoken Todd, his wife, Julie, and their five children — Lindsie, 24; Kyle, 22; Chase, 17; Savannah, 16; and Grayson, 7 — who live a seemingly perfect Southern life with everything money can buy. A “patriarch of perfection,” Todd runs his family like his business — with an iron fist — and micromanages every move and expense. Behind the facade of the 30,000 sq. ft. home, real-life issues and drama are uncovered.

Heather Olander, senior vice president of alternative programming at USA, likened this show to an amped up “Father Knows Best” that complements “Modern Family,” which airs on the network in repeats. Sister station E! will also air the repeats of “Chrisley Knows Best.”

Chrisley, in a trailer, said he made most of his money via real estate and his neighbors include Chipper Jones and Usher.

i want to know more about Kyle.  Todd said he spent a million dollars on him.  Besides being caught with a married woman what else did he do?
