CMT has announced plans for a new eight-episode docu-series, Music City, which follows a group of emerging artists chasing their dreams in the music industry, while balancing demands in their personal lives. The series is slated to premiere early next year as a companion series to CMT’s Nashville, which returns for new shows in January.
The docu-series is created and executive-produced by Adam DiVello, creator of shows including Laguna Beach and The Hills. Music City reunites CMT and Lionsgate, who partnered last year to bring the fan-favorite series Nashville to CMT.
“Music has always played a huge role in the storytelling process of my past series,” said creator/executive producer DiVello, “and with Music City, we’ll take that element to another level, as we document the real-life struggles, heartaches, and drama of those chasing their dreams of stardom. Nashville is such an exciting city and I can’t wait to share with the world the stories of this incredibly talented cast we’ve put together.”
“After a banner year of growth, we’ve enlisted one of the industry’s most influential and talented producers to help guide our ever-expanding fanbase deeper inside our beloved hometown,” said Frank Tanki, General Manager of CMT and TV Land. “Like its sister series, Nashville, Music City will spotlight a group of young artists as they grapple with love, life and the pursuit of their dreams through the incomparable lens of the creator of some of the most memorable series of the last 20 years. We welcome all the fans of Laguna Beach and The Hills that are now our target audience into the world of Music City, and CMT as a whole.”
Details on cast members for Music City will be released in the coming weeks.
