What’s next for the guy who took over “Two and a Half Men”? Well, another laugh-track sitcom of course! Only this time, Kutcher will be streaming on Netflix and — gasp! — swearing openly!
The veteran TV star who broke out in “That 70’s Show” is reuniting with one of its stars in “The Ranch,” a new Netflix original series in which Danny Masterson co-stars as the brother of Kutcher’s former football star turned family rancher, and the son to a father who’s always tried to give his children a realistic perspective on life. The tonally awkward trailer above certainly promises an interesting mix of somber life lessons and tired “phrasing!” jokes, but with a cast including Sam Elliott, Debra Winger and Elisha Cuthbert, there’s bound to be something great in the first 10 episode season.
“The Ranch” debuts Friday, April 1 exclusively on Netflix, and while we can’t say for certain, it doesn’t appear to be an elaborate April Fools’ Day joke.
