9. The Ballad of Coy and Vance

The Dukes of Hazzard was a top ten show heading into its fifth season. That’s when a report came out revealing just how much the show had earned in merchandising. And that’s when the stars of that show realized how much they weren’t getting. In this episode of The Industry we take a look at the contract dispute that led to two replacements joining a top ten show and how that show would never be in the top ten again. Byron Cherry (Coy Duke) helps tell the story of Coy and Vance.
