Epix, a joint venture of Viacom, Paramount, MGM and Lionsgate that launched Oct. 30 with concert and comedy specials, has tapped Sam Shepard to star in its inaugural pilot, "Tough Trade," reports The Hollywood Reporter.

Shepard will play the patriarch in"Tough Trade," an hour drama about a three-generation Nashville music dynasty whose penchant for drink, debauchery and divorce has left them morally corrupt and on the verge of bankruptcy, the Reporter said.
