The Andy Griffith Show originally aired on CBS from 1960 until 1968, generating consistently high ratings and winning six Emmy awards—five for actor Don Knotts (“Barney Fife”) and one for actress Frances Bavier (“Aunt Bee”)—as well as three additional Emmy nominations in humor and comedy categories. Six decades later, the iconic series about a Southern sheriff and the quirky characters in the fictional small town of Mayberry, North Carolina, remains in syndication around the world. Mayberry was loosely modeled after actor Andy Griffith’s real-life hometown of Mount Airy, North Carolina, which hosts Mayberry Days®, a festival that celebrates The Andy Griffith Show through tours, family events, musical performances, and appearances by special guests. Writer-producer-director Chris Hudson uses the town and the festival as a jumping-off point for his documentary.
