Interview: ‘Jason Hervey’ Talks His New Show Outlaw Country On WGN America


Jason Hervey began his acting career at the age of four and went on to appear in over 250 commercials for some of America’s favorite brands. His most notable role became Wayne Arnold in the Emmy Award-winning hit series “The Wonder Years.” His acting experience afforded him the ability to segue to opportunities behind the camera and, at just 17 years old and while still starring in “The Wonder Years,” Hervey created, starred in and produced 26 episodes of the Saturday morning series “Wide World of Kids.”

We talked about his career and his new show on WGN ‘Outlaw Country’ on Tuesday, Feb. 24. Watch the trailer below. Click on the link below to hear the interview.

“Outlaw Country” is a one-hour docudrama set in the town of Buckner, Missouri, offering one-of-a-kind access into a unique and dangerous subculture. With a reputation for drug dealing, gun running and robbing the Heartland blind, The Alliance threatens to overtake Kansas City. “Outlaw Country” follows as an elite team of law enforcement officers attempt to thwart their illegal operations at every pass, doing whatever it takes to break this assemblage of bandits—including running alongside the crew and bending a few laws of their own.

At the heart of this warfare lie two sets of brothers–Mike and Steve Cook, who act as Chief of Police and head of the Buckner Criminal Task Force, respectively, and John and Josh Monk, the pair they suspect are responsible for the town’s surge in crime. The series premieres Tuesday, February 24th at 10:00 pm ET/9:00 pm CT on WGN America.
