Fox Is Developing a Miniseries Based on... a Carrie Underwood Song?

Television audiences are totally used to the idea of shows being adapted from books or films. They've reluctantly been subjected to shows that got their start as blogs or Twitter feeds. And they can now expect to see a lot more rusty pickup trucks, empty beer cans, and American flags on their TV screens, because Fox is working on a show that's based on a country song.

Yes, a country song. 

According to Deadline, the network and Jerry Bruckheimer are developing Two Black Cadillacs, a six-hour miniseries based on the 2012 Carrie Underwood song of the same name. The hit single tells the tale of a man whose wife and mistress find out about each other and join forces in a plot to kill the lowdown cheatin' scum.

Underwood, who rose to fame after winning the fourth season of American Idol and starred in NBC's The Sound of Music Live, will serve as an executive producer.

Would you watch Two Black Cadillacs? In case you're not familiar with the song, here's the music video for it:

I think this actually doesn't sound too bad! Depends on how they tell the story, though, because now we already know the ending. ;)

I've noticed women tend to sing songs about the consequences of cheating, and men tend to sing songs about the joy of cheating. Why do you suppose that is?

I wonder what the into/theme music will be...

I actually don't hate this, though. The plot could be fun in a dark way. Also, I like Carrie's music so.....:)

This sounds too dark. I'd rather a network made a show based on Cat Stevens's (nka Yusuf Islam), "Peace Train'. Its a much better song with a much better sentiment.

if they could make movies out of board games and amusement park rides... why not a country song that tells an actual story?

ABC- Sweet Emotion, Aerosmith. I don't know what it is about, but it is by Shonda Rhimes so I wouldn't watch it anyway.

NBC- I got Nothing, Darius Rucker. Pretty self-explanatory.

CBS- Veronica, Elvis Costello. About a woman named Veronica that doesn't forget anything but is a member of the NCIS Greenwich CSI cyber crime unit that stumbles on a program that identifies persons of interest. Basically it is the repetitious nature of CBS in one program.

CW- She's only 17. By Winger It is about an actress that plays a 17 year old but is really in her late 20s.

USA- Days Gone By, Dirty Vegas. It is about a network that used to have innovative and creative shows and now doesn't and doesn't know what to do about it so they keep green lighting shit tv in an effort to try to get viewers and drama ensues. Crappy Drama.

FX- Russian Roulette, Rhianna. It is a fake docudrama about a writer/show runner named Burt Sudder, who runs a critically successful tv show about bikers but can't pull the trigger on a beloved character and the show and the people surrounding running the show suffer as a result of it.

HBO- She, The Devil in the Flesh. By KillWhitneyDead. A story about a sexy woman that is the daughter of Satan being stalked and hunted by religious fanatics bound and determined to kill her. She is the innocent one among the cast, but bad things happen around her and we see the contrast between the supposed evil side and the supposed good side and how the walls erode in the girls running and the mobs chasing.

AMC- Losing my Edge, LCD SoundSystem. It is about an aging Hitman dealing with screwing up a job and being chased by the Feds and by the people that contracted him. Also, it is about AMC losing its edge.
Showime-

Showtime- Fortunate Son, By Creedance Clearwater Revival. It is about Sailors in DEVGRU (Seal Team Six) Specifically Green Team, which is the elite of the elite. It shows a group of people in and surrounding the team in a support capacity. And the missions they go on and the questioning of if it is all worth it in regards to the benefits of the missions and the costs to the team and the teams family.

So basically it's a six hour music video. Sounds like November Rain.

Well i Think is kind of a good idea because most of the songs have a history of it own and if you can make it right it could be good. Better than some other series anyway.

This might be the beginning of a new age - singers get to executive produce miniseries of their hit songs. What a great industry this is.
