Deadline reports that Lionsgate is teaming with producer Scott Delman to bring the country music-themed show to the lights of Broadway.

In a statement, Delman said, “‘Nashville’, with its complex, relatable characters and sweeping emotional gestures, has all of the narrative elements that I look for in great theatrical source material. From that rich DNA, we will be building an original story with entirely original music, written by major Nashville and Broadway songwriters.”
