Brad Delves In to TV

Brad Paisley announced today that he has partnered with actor Zach Quinto of Heroes, producer Mark Schwann and writers Neal Dodson and Matt Bomer to create and co-produce a show, tentatively titled Nashville.

The show would revolve around an aspiring young female singer destined for stardom and a struggling male songwriter whose career isn’t as certain. Brad will contribute some of his hit songs to the series and also occasionally appear in the show as himself. The show is scheduled to begin airing next season on the CW network. “I’m very excited to portray the country music world of my favorite town, Nashville, by showing the exciting life of musicians, songwriters and performers – all very talented people,” says Brad. “Look for some of your favorite country music stars to make their acting debuts on the show – either by playing themselves or as a character in the script. Country songs are like great scripts already and it’s going to be fun to see how some unfold on the show.”
