Todd Chrisley – Plans To Star In TV Show Amid Prison
Savannah and Chase Chrisley plan to join other family members in a new reality TV show. However, their parents Todd and Julie Chrisley remain in prison for tax evasion and bank fraud.

Todd and Julie face a combined 19 years in prison. As a result, they seem unlikely to get permission to let production cameras film them. But Julie’s and Todd’s attorney, Jay Surgent, described how the Chrisley Knows Best couple could participate in the TV show in other ways.
However, the attorney admitted it seems “highly doubtful” that the Bureau of Prisons would permit camera crews. And “security purposes and administration operations” might make it difficult. But Jay explained how Todd could tell his kids what he wants them to say on the show. In other words, Todd becomes the puppet master, taking complete charge of his puppet kids’ performances on the show.

And Surgent explained that Todd and Julie would star in the show by talking to their children. “He speaks with [his daughter] Savannah. Savannah visits her parents,” noted Surgent. And he revealed that she stays “in constant contact with her parents by phone.”.
And Todd would then tell his kids his viewpoints on the show, their careers, and their lives. But the show also would help Todd to publicize “his own situation as well as Julie’s situation,” pointed out Jay. As a result, the attorney believes that the Chrisley kids can help their parents by starring on the show.
And he added, “They’re looking forward to it.” But though Todd feels “very excited,” the attorney warned that caution is required. For instance, the kids and Todd’s mother, Nanny Faye, can share their worries about the Chrisley Knows Best patriarch and matriarch without legal problems.
And the family can even express disappointment at what occurs in court. The kids could talk about their parents’ “constitutional rights being violated,” he added, ” Just talking generalities, and their hopes that the parents will prevail on appeal.”
But the family must use caution to avoid any remarks that might “prejudice their parents’ appeal” or “prejudice the prosecution’s position.” However, with the attorney and their parents coaching them, Savannah Chrisley, Chase Chrisley, Grayson Chrisley, Chloe Chrisley, and Nanny Faye hope to succeed in creating a successful new reality TV show. And Savannah gushed, “We couldn’t have found better partners in Scout Productions. We’re so happy to be back.”
