File this under: Weirdest TV news of the day! (But we kind of dig it.) Carrie Underwood's "Two Black Cadillacs" song is becoming a TV show for Fox. Yep, you read that right. Underwood is attached to executive produce the 6-hour "event series" with uber-producer Jerry Bruckheimer. The "event series" is being written by Necessary Roughness veteran Ildy Modrovich.
The show from Warner Bros. Television will delve into a love triangle in the South. It gets murderous, naturally, when a wife and mistress catch on to a philandering man and plot to kill him. The song was written by Underwood, Hillary Lindsey and Josh Kear. It was on Underwood¹s 2012 album Blown Away and went platinum.
Underwood got her start on Fox¹s American Idol, winning season five. She recently starred in NBC¹s live musical version of The Sound of Music. Fox is rolling out a bunch of event series this season, the first being this fall's Gracepoint. For anyone unfamiliar with the term "event series," that usually means that it will only be one season—unless it's a hit and then it can go on forever, a la CBS' Under the Dome. Still, Fox insists this will be a "six-hour, limited event series."
But maybe season two can be another Carrie Underwood song? We're...excited?
