The Dukes of Hazzard: Reunion! is a made-for-television film from 1997 which aired on CBS and reunites the surviving cast members of the American TV series. It is sometimes referred to as Reunion in Hazzard. This film was dedicated “In Loving Memory” to those members of the series’ cast and crew who had died: Phil Mandelker, Sorrell Booke, Paul Picard, and Jim Mohlmann. The inspiration to do the film came about when the unexpected popularity of The Dukes of Hazzard reruns on The Nashville Network led to a renewed interest in the franchise. The reunion movie was followed up with The Dukes of Hazzard: Hazzard in Hollywood!.
The Good Ole Boys return to try to save Hazzard Swamp and Uncle Jesse’s farm from being destroyed by a crooked developer’s (Mama Josephine Max) plans to build a theme park. To do so, they have to dust off the General Lee and win a cross-country moonshine race. The plot thickens when Mama Max stops at nothing to prevent Bo and Luke from running in the race, including kidnapping Daisy.
In Hazzard in Hollywood, the Duke Boys and company travel to Hollywood to sell some musical recordings in order to raise money to build a new hospital in Hazzard County. However, when their recordings and money are stolen, they wind up on the run from mysterious hitmen, sleazy record producers, Russian gangsters, and vicious loan sharks.
