‘My Name Is Earl’ Inspiring Karmic Belief

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The NBC sitcom My Name Is Earl may be inspiring a lot of karmic belief but star Jason Lee and producer Greg Garcia are still more interested in comic relief.

The show revolves around Lee’s title character, a sleazeball trying to improve his life by trying to improve his karma by righting every person he’s wronged.

Lee and Garcia aren’t sure how religious scholars would view the show’s interpretation of karma but Garcia enjoys hearing about regular people being inspired and surprised by the show.

So far, Lee’s character has a list of more than 200 karmic wrongs, which means the show could go on forever, especially because Garcia makes sure that Earl constantly adds new mistakes.

Regardless of how long Earl lasts, Garcia is prepared.

As he puts it, “I have an ending I could do tomorrow. Hopefully, I won’t have to.”

My Name Is Earl moves to Thursday nights starting Jan. 5.
