Branson Famous is a reality television show that aired on truTV in 2014. The show follows the lives of the Mabe family, a well-known family in Branson, Missouri who are the stars of the Baldknobbers Jamboree, a long-running country music and comedy show. The Mabe family consist of siblings, Brandon, Brent, Megan, and Leah, their parents, Patty and Tim, and their grandmother, Billie.

The show revolves around the family's attempts to revamp their show and stay relevant in the highly competitive Branson entertainment scene. The Mabes are known as the "first family of Branson," and their show has been a staple in the city for over 50 years.

Branson Famous is shot in a mockumentary style similar to The Office, in which the Mabes often directly address the camera and discuss their thoughts and feelings about the events happening around them. The show is hosted by Kari, a local radio personality who acts as a narrator and a sort of comedic foil to the Mabes.

The central conflict of the show is whether or not the Mabes should make changes to their long-running show. Brent, the youngest Mabe sibling, is the most vocal proponent of change and attempts to convince his family to update their act and appeal to a younger demographic. Brandon, the eldest Mabe sibling and de facto leader of the family, is more hesitant to change and is concerned about alienating their existing fan base.

Throughout the show, the Mabes face a number of challenges, both personal and professional. In the first episode, Brandon is arrested for DUI, and the family must come together to bail him out of jail. Meanwhile, Brent becomes romantically involved with another Branson performer, Heather, which adds further tension to the family dynamic.

As the series progresses, the Mabes struggle to come to a decision about the future of their show. Along the way, they encounter a number of colorful characters, including other Branson performers and local businessmen, who offer their opinions and advice.

One recurring theme throughout the show is the tension between the Mabes' desire to stay true to their roots and their need to adapt to changing times. The Mabes are proud of their family's legacy in Branson, but they also recognize the need to stay relevant in a constantly evolving entertainment landscape.

Overall, Branson Famous offers a behind-the-scenes look at the inner workings of a long-running Branson show and the personal and professional struggles of the family who runs it. The show offers a mix of drama, comedy, and musical performances, and offers a uniquely intimate look at the lives of one of Branson's most famous families.

Branson Famous is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (12 episodes). The series first aired on December 29, 2014.
