Watch the Movie Trailer

An arrogant movie star is busted for speeding in a small town and is sentenced by a local judge to attend Mayberry Fest, a weeklong festival celebrating The Andy Griffith Show. Immersed in a modern-day version of Mayberry, he is forced out of his Hollywood bubble and given the chance to discover the true meaning of friendship and family.


Mayberry Man is being produced by "the children of Mayberry" with the help of fans across North America. Indiana resident Cort Howell is the producer and his brother Stark Howell is the writer-director. They are the sons of actor Hoke Howell who played “Dud Wash” on the original series. 

Dixie Griffith (daughter of Andy Griffith) is an Executive Producer and Karen Knotts (daughter of Don Knotts) appears in the film. 

The movie will also feature original music from The Andy Griffith Show courtesy of Laura Hagen, widow of composer Earle Hagen.
