Since taking the helm two years ago, CEO Laurent Puons, a Monaco native and former pro boxer, says he has been working hard to reposition the festival as a relevant industry event, emphasizing the importance of the international competition, bringing in high-profile industry figures and scoring prestigious series’ world premieres.

According to a recent report from TV Line, the Nashville season 4 folks have cut actor, Eric Close aka Teddy, out of most of the upcoming season due to some creative reasons.

Teddy was last seen, getting arrested in the season 3 finale by the Feds for embezzling official funds to go see a high-priced hooker. However, Teddy's strong ties to Rayna and her two children, means that he will likely return at some point. Their sources actually report that there's a good chance Teddy will return as a guest character.

ABC has disappointed viewers by cancelling shows like Forever and Resurrection but fans of Nashville are singing a happy tune. The Wednesday night drama has been renewed for a fourth season.
The Nashville TV show continues to follow the lives and careers of country music superstars Juliette Barnes (Hayden Panettiere) and Rayna Jaymes (Connie Britton). The rest of the cast includes Clare Bowen, Eric Close, Charles Esten, Sam Palladio, Jonathan Jackson, Chris Carmack, Lennon Stella, Maisy Stella, Will Chase, and Oliver Hudson.
It's never been a hit show for ABC but they keep renewing Nashville anyway. This season, the ratings held pretty steady and it looked like a fourth season renewal was nearly guaranteed because that would ensure they'd have episodes for a good-sized syndication package (which is a big moneymaker for the studio).
