Naomi And Wynonna Judd Are First Subjects Of New Fox Series ‘Icon’

Naomi and Wynonna Judd will be the subject of the first installment of a new drama series Icon that has been greenlighted by Fox from producer Gail Berman and artist manager Jason Owen (Kacey Musgraves, Little Big Town), reports deadline.com.

Icon will spotlight the drama, dynamics and at times challenging relationship between the legendary mother and daughter duo, telling their story through the music and songs that shaped their career and country music. Season 1 celebrates the trailblazing duo, who dominated the country charts for decades, winning numerous awards and selling over 20 million albums. Though the Judds stopped performing together in 1991 after Naomi was diagnosed with Hepatitis C and Wynonna embarked on a successful solo career, the two have reunited for special tours, most recently in 2010.

The Judds’ Icon story will be executive produced by Naomi and Wynonna. Their managers, Les Borsai, Greg Hill, Cactus Moser and Larry Strickland, will produce.

Wynonna also just announced her upcoming Recollections EP, set for release in October.
