New reality TV show comes amid Todd and Julie Chrisley’s prison sentence

Todd and Julie Chrisley, who portrayed themselves as real estate tycoons in the South on their USA Network shows, were sentenced to 12 and seven years in prison, respectively, after being found guilty on federal charges in June 2022.

The two are currently seven months into their sentence. Both reported to their respective prisons in January.

Todd and Julie were charged with conspiracy to commit bank fraud, bank fraud, conspiracy to defraud the United States and tax fraud. Julie was also charged with wire fraud and obstruction of justice.

In addition to their prison sentences, Todd and Julie each received an order of 16 months probation from U.S. District Judge Eleanor Ross in Atlanta.

Federal prosecutors said at the time of their sentencing that the couple was driven by greed as they engaged in an extensive bank fraud scheme and then hid their wealth from tax authorities while flaunting their lavish lifestyle.

“The Chrisleys have built an empire based on the lie that their wealth came from dedication and hard work,” prosecutors wrote at the time. “The jury’s unanimous verdict sets the record straight: Todd and Julie Chrisley are career swindlers who have made a living by jumping from one fraud scheme to another, lying to banks, stiffing vendors, and evading taxes at every corner.”

“Chrisley Knows Best” aired for 10 seasons, with its most recent episode being broadcast in March of this year. The spinoff, “Growing Up Chrisley,” which centered on Savannah and Chase Chrisley, aired for four seasons between 2019 and 2022.
