Watch The Dukes of Hazzard

The Dukes of Hazard is a popular, long-running nighttime sitcom that ran on CBS. The show centers around two moonshine running cousins Bo and Luke Duke, portrayed by John Schneider and Tom Wopat. The Dukes live in the rural, fictional Hazzard County, Georgia, where they attempt to stay one step ahead of the dimwitted county sheriff Roscoe P. Coltrane, portrayed by James Best, and the crooked county commissioner Boss Hogg, portrayed by Sorell Booke. The Duke's are on probation as part of a plea deal, but sheriff Coltrane and Boss Hogg would like nothing better than to see them behind bars.

Bo and Luke do their moonshine running in a souped up 1969 Dodge Charger called the General Lee. Bo and Luke always seem to get on the bad side of the sheriff and Boss Hogg after foiling their illegal schemes. This usually means depending on backup from their uncle Jesse, portrayed by Denver Pyle, and their sexy, barmaid cousin Daisy, portrayed by Catherine Bach. Daisy also races the back roads with her own souped up white Jeep CJ-7. The short shorts worn by Daisy took on a life of their own, and achieve international fame as "Daisy Dukes."

The Dukes of Hazzard's principal writing team consisted of Gy Waldron and Si Rose. Waldron is best known for writing the movie Moonrunners, and several episodes of the sitcom One Day at a Time. Rose' writing credits include What's Happening, Operation Petticoat, H.R. Pufnstuf, and McHale's Navy. Several of the show's main actors also took on directing duties including Sorrell Booke, John Schneider, Denver Pyle, Tom Wopat, and James Best.

The Dukes of Hazzard has gained international acclaim and a host of loyal followers. The show's theme is sung by Waylon Jennings, who also serves as the show's narrator. The show features weekly country music stars and guest appearances by such notables as Dottie West, Cale Yarborough, Charles Napier, Ernie Hudson, Tammy Wynette, Johnny Paycheck, and Mel Tillis.
