NBC has bought a drama based on the youth of a country music star. Deadline.com reports that the network has signed on for the project from singer Miranda Lambert, which Lambert will executive produce.
The project, based on Lambert’s youth, tracks a couple who run a detective agency while parenting two teenagers, the story notes. Lambert’s father became a private investigator after retiring from the police force, and her mother also worked with the business.
The deal means NBC now has a relationship with both partners in country music’s top couple, as Lambert’s husband Blake Shelton co-stars on the network’s hit show "The Voice," the piece points out.
Lambert’s mother, Beverly June Lambert, will work as a consultant on the television project, which Chad Hodge will write.
Lambert came to national attention in 2003 as a finalist on the TV competition series “Nashville Star.”
