Each episode of the 14-part series will focus on answering an individual question, like “What is there to do in Franklin?” “Where do the locals go in Franklin?” or “Where is the best barbecue in Franklin?” including house band Rodeo & Juliet providing a theme song you’ll have in your head for days. Host Frank Franklin takes his show from the stage of the Franklin Theatre to the streets of Franklin to answer these frank questions and more.
