New TV Series Set in East Nashville!


The TV Show Nashville helped launch Nashville's exponential growth, and now another show based around Music City is in the works.

Freeform (formerly ABC Family) is working on a new show set in East Nashville called East Nasty.

The show has some weight behind it, as it's being written by Jamie Rosengard, who also wrote on the show Empire.

A news release about the show says "The show follows two best friends - one a black, queer singer-songwriter, and one a seemingly tailor-made country musician from a deeply religious family - struggling alongside other musical misfits for a place at the table. Though they don't fit the face of sound of conservative country music, they will fight to lend their unique voices to a genre steeped in tradition and history."

Though we don't know a lot about the show, it is expected to have a different tone than Nashville, and honestly I'm pretty excited about this one!

No other information has been released at this point.
