NBC Developing New Drama Produced by Miranda!
Thursday, August 30, 2012
From Deadline.com - In a competitive situation, NBC has bought a light drama executive produced by country star Miranda Lambert. The deal brings both halves of country music’s “it” couple to NBC, with Miranda joining her husband, The Voice co-star Blake Shelton, whose relationship with the network played a role in the project landing there. Chad Hodge is set to write the project, which is inspired by Miranda's experience growing up and centers on a couple who run a highly successful detective agency while also trying to raise two teenagers. Aaron Kaplan of Kapital Entertainment, Hodge and Miranda are executive producing with her manager, Marion Kraft. The project was set up at ABC Family last year with a different writer.
Miranda and her younger brother grew up in Lindale, TX. Their father, Richard Lee “Rick” Lambert, a retired police officer, became a private investigator in partnership with her mother, Beverly “Bev” June Lambert, who will serve as a consultant on the TV project. WME-repped Miranda, who got her break on television as a finalist on reality series Nashville Star in 2003, went on to become a top-selling country singer.
