Airdate: Luann and Sonja: Welcome to Crappie Lake.
Two Real Housewives regulars swap big-city chic for small-town charm in Benton, Illinois.
US reality series Luann and Sonja: Welcome to Crappie Lake has a Free to Air premiere tomorrow on 7Bravo.
The series, which has previously screened on Hayu, sees Real Housewives regulars Luann de Lesseps and Sonja Morgan swapping big-city chic for small-town charm in Benton, Illinois.
With apologies to The Simple Life perhaps? Or even Green Acres? It’s a classic fish-out-of-water premise.
The Benton City Council surprises the town residents by inviting Real Housewives icons Luann de Lesseps and Sonja Morgan to help spruce up their small town (population just shy of 7,000) that was devastated by the pandemic. It’s a fish-out-of-water experience for everyone involved, especially when the two Manhattanites check into the local motel. The mayor wastes no time putting them towork and Luann and Sonja quickly realise they have their work cut out for them. From building a new playground to revitalising the local theatre with a full-on variety show and creating connections with the locals along the way, Luann and Sonja use their ingenuity to help improve the surroundings and rally the town’s spirits. Whether searching for the famous crappie fish in the lake with their bare hands or going mudding with monster trucks, one thing is for certain – with Luann and Sonja in charge and out of their element, hijinks and hilarity are sure to follow.
Luann and Sonja: Welcome to Crappie Lake is produced by Jeff Jenkins Productions, in association with 3BMG. Executive producers are Jeff Jenkins, Russell Jay-Staglik, Ailee O’Neill, Brandon Beck, Ross Weintraub and Reinout Oerlemans.
Double episode 8:30pm Tuesday on 7Bravo.
