ABC Gives New Show ‘Nashville’ the Green Light
With the network having picked up Reba‘s new comedy “Malibu Country,” ABC has also made room for another country music themed show.
ABC recently announced the pickup of a musical drama “Nashville.” Starring Connie Britton and Hayden Panettiere, “Nashville” bases itself around a fading singer who has to work with an up-and-coming star. Britton will play 40-year-old married mother of two Rayna James who finds herself on tour with Juliette Barnes (Panettiere).
Also on the show will be Eric Close, Powers Boothe, Sam Palladio, Clare Bowen, Jonathan Jackson, Robert Wisdom and Charles Esten.
Full production will start this summer in Music City. No premiere date has been set.
