Crankey Village, New Mexico

The TV comedy about life in a wacky retirement community

We Need You to Help Us Open the Door to Crankey Village!

Crankey Village, New Mexico is a TV series about a wacky family-owned retirement community somewhere in New Mexico. New Mexico? What does anyone know about New Mexico?


When Fred Crankey died, his wife, meanie Luella, inherited the Village. She also got his little red scout Mercedes with the old pine tree air freshener. Dead Fred inhabits the air freshener.


Luella is desperate to dump the hemorrhoid hacienda. But the quirky staff and residents and even wheel chair bound mouthy MIL G’ma will do anything to kill the deal. One effort included adding massive amounts of stool softener to the prospective buyer's pudding.


Sylvia, the resident horned lizard, sees it all. And has her own opinions.

Luella may call it the "Hemorrhoid Hacienda" but to Gma and everyone who lives there, Crankey Village is Home.
