I am excited to announce that I will be blogging about an upcoming ABC show called, “Nashville,” which premieres on Wednesday, October 10th (Set your DVRs!) at 10 PM / 9 PM Central for a website called “Have U Heard” which covers a wide range of TV shows and entertainment news. “Nashville” features the lovely and talented Connie Britton and Hayden Panettiere. I absolutely adored Connie Britton as Coach Tayor’s wife, Tammy, in Friday Nights Lights. She also recently starred in AMC’s American Horror Story which completely scared the crap out of me. Hayden grew up near me in Rockland County, NY and is best known for her roles on the TV show Heroes and leading parts in several movies (including I Love You, Beth Cooper and Amanda Knox: Murder on Trial in Italy).
Nashville is a drama about a 40 year old country music singer (Connie Britton) who is trying to hold on to her star power while teen country singer (Hayden) is rising in popularity. The two go on tour together at the suggestion of Connie’s producers, but Hayden wants to be the next Connie. The drama ensues. Nashville is created by Callie Khouri, Academy Award winner for her screenplay, Thelma and Louise.
Great actresses, great writing and interesting subject matter – this show promises something for everyone. Start booking out your Wednesday nights and watch with me. Now that The Bachelor is on hiatus til January 2013 and we STILL don’t know who the next Bachelor will be, might as well find a couple of good shows this Fall to keep us going. BTW, rumor has it that the next Bachelor will be Sean Lowe – the blonde Mr. Perfect from Emily Maynard’s season who likes to press women up against medieval walls in foreign cities to kiss them and do shirtless push-ups in front of his lady’s friends. Not sure if they’re waiting for the season premiere of Dancing With the Stars next Monday to announce it officially, or they’re still worrying that Sean will bore viewers to tears. Either way, can we start picketing for Roberto Martinez?? Not only do I want Roberto to be our guy, but I want Ali Fedotowsky to join around week 4, just to shake things up and because I want to relive their romance / falling in love again. Still the greatest couple!
Yes, I liked Sean, but I think he should just date and marry Kacie Boguski. They would make an adorable couple and have many of the same values, including quoting from the Bible on their Twitter accounts.
Till Bachelor 2013 – tune into Nashville on Wednesday, October 10th at 10 PM/ 9 PM Central! What else are you watching this Fall?
