15 Fall TV Shows to Watch in 2012

Fall Arts Preview 2012

Nashville

Wednesday, Oct. 10, ABC

CONNIE BRITTON. THAT’S all the reason you need to tune in to Nashville this October. Britton cemented her place as a fantastic actress in Friday Night Lights, and then compounded that in last year’s American Horror Story, proving she was more than capable of headlining a show regardless of subject matter. Nashville takes her somewhere completely different, here playing a fading country star who finds herself forced by her record label to tour with an immature, up-and-coming crossover singer (Hayden Panetierre). Featuring an original soundtrack of country music, the show runs in a similar vein to Glee and Smash, though thankfully with closer similarities to the latter than the former. Written by Callie Khouri, Academy Award-winning writer of Thelma and Louise, Nashville should make an interesting addition to ABC’s lineup, but, really, we’re in it just for more Britton. And you should be, too.
