Is a musical adaptation of Nashville heading to Broadway?
According to Lionsgate and lead producer Scott Delman, an original Broadway musical based on ABC's hit TV series "Nashville" is in the works. Delman has commented that the Broadway adaptation would be "an original story with entirely original music, written by major Nashville and Broadway songwriters" bringing a contemporary country music score to the Great White Way. The TV series ran for six seasons from 2012 to 2018 (with the final two seasons airing on CMT), featuring such Broadway stars as Laura Benanti, Will Chase and Kyle Dean Massey and depicting the lives of country music superstars and newcomers to Nashville's vibrant music scene. Stay tuned for further details on this musical project in development.
