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.
