Sonic and State Farm have partnered with TBS to provide marketing and promotional support for the second season of The Bill Engvall Show.

Insurance company State Farm will have a contextual role in an episode dedicated to practicing teenage safe driving, while Sonic will be included in storylines throughout the season, according to network officials.

Both companies will be included in marketing outreach and promotions for the series, in which comedian Engvall plays Bill Pearson, a family counselor, who has difficulty understanding his own family. The new season is to debut on June 12.
