Carrie Underwood’s ‘Two Black Cadillacs’ to Become TV Series
Carrie Underwood is returning to the small screen -- sort of. The songstress will executive produce a six-hour limited event series, 'Two Black Cadillacs,' based on her platinum-selling song of the same name, which she wrote with Hillary Lindsey and Josh Kear.
Underwood will partner with famed movie and TV producer Jerry Bruckheimer, whose many credits include 'Top Gun,' 'Black Hawk Down,' 'CSI: NY' and 'Pirates of the Caribbean.' The six-hour series, written by Ildy Mordovich ('Necessary Roughness,' 'CSI: Miami'), will explore a dangerous love triangle that occurs in the South.
The mother-to-be admits that song was a departure from what she usually records, but one she was happy to include on her 'Blown Away' album.
“It was so fun writing that song,” she tells The Boot. “Obviously people know it’s not my life. I try not to overthink it ... If I had a whole album full of songs like that, it would be like, ‘What is she trying to say here?’”
While it's unclear if Underwood will have any screen time in the new series, she did come up with and star in the concept for the dramatic video.
“I had this idea … If the car did the killing -- a la ‘Christine,’ the Stephen King book -- I just thought that would be a cool little twist to the story,” she explains. “So I did reach out to ask if he might give his blessing, and I told him, ‘I would never want to do this if you didn’t sign off on it first.’”
'Two Black Cadillacs' will air on Fox. No word yet on a premiere date.
