Granada eyes country songs for drama series

12 March 2009 7:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Country songs sure can tell stories. Now TV production company Granada America wants to make some of those stories into a series of one-hour TV dramas.

The film-producing duo of Mark Roberts and Lorena David ("Strangers With Candy," "Extreme Dating") pitched the project to Granada and will executive produce it with veteran music supervisor Joel C. High of Creative Control Entertainment. Dubbed "American Storytellers," the series will have access to least seven songs from Sony/Atv Music Publishing as well as works by other publishers to be named.

"We have worked with them for upwards of two years to find the right songs for the project," Sony/Atv Nashville president Troy Tomlinson said. "The music was to be the driving force behind the series."

The music publisher boasts a formidable country catalog that includes classics by Merle Haggard, Buck Owens and Roger Miller as well as recent hits by Taylor Swift, »
