'Bless This Mess' is a new series that recently premiered on ABC. Created by Elizabeth Meriwether from 'New Girl' and Lake Bell, the show follows a young married couple from New York (played by Dax Shepard and Bell) as they leave the hustle and bustle of city life and move to a farmhouse they inherit in Nebraska from Mike's (Shepard) late aunt. Rio (Bell), a therapist, and Mike (Shepard), a music journalist, who have been married for a year, quit their jobs in New York and move to Nebraska to live a simpler life and try their hand at farming.

Apart from Bell and Shepard, the cast also includes a faux welcoming neighboring family which has a son called Jacob, who is played by actor JT Neal.

In an exclusive interview with MEA WorldWide (MEAWW), JT Neal revealed the chances of a second season for 'Bless this Mess', his inspirations and his future projects, and who he would like to work next with.


Starting off JT Neal spoke to us about his upcoming projects, "I recently guest starred in three episodes of this series on Netflix for this project called 'Malibu Rescue' which comes out next month. I am also waiting on a film right now that I did a couple of years ago with Jaden Smith and Cara Delevingne. It's called 'Life In a Year'. I don't have any details on that yet. We're still waiting on a release date for that." 

Talking about his inspirations, and who he would to work with next, Neal revealed, "I've always loved Tom Hanks. My dad was a big fan of Tom Hanks. So I grew up watching 'The Green Mile' and so I always wanted to work with Tom Hanks just because I think every single project that he does is amazing. I have never seen a bad Tom Hanks movie. And so I think I would love to work with him and I would also love to work with Rob Reiner as a director because I grew up watching The Princess Bride and it is kind of the reason why I became an actor and so he's one director that always wanted to work with so hopefully I get that chance soon."

Currently 'Bless This Mess' is on season 1, and we asked Neal the possibilities of a season 2, to which he said, "I have zero information on season 2 at this moment. Hopefully, we will know something soon, but as of right now I haven't heard anything. So I am just enjoying season 1 and people are enjoying it too. So I find hopes for season 2, but I haven't heard anything." 

'Bless This Mess' airs every Tuesday on ABC. Check your local listings for more information.
