Protagonist Kenny Powers is a despicable, chauvinistic, racist, homophobic, chubby and unattractive bloke who was once a pro baseball pitcher.

The series is produced by Will Ferrell’s production company, Gary Sanchez Productions.Best line:
Terrance: ‘There’s something you need to know about, Kenny. You’re not the only athlete here at Jeff Davis. I happen to be training for a triathlon, so I’ve been doing a lot of running, cycling, swimming. But you’d know all about that.’ Kenny: ‘No, actually, I don’t. I play real sports; I’m not trying to be the best at exercising.’Watch it:
