NBC is developing a new drama series called God’s Country, based on the hit country song by Blake Shelton. The singer is teaming with Las Vegas creator Gary Scott Thompson, who will write the script, and Universal Television to bring the series to the network. The triple platinum song, released in March 2019, won Single of the Year at the Academy of Country Music Awards last week.
Deadline describes the story:
In God’s Country, when the patriarch of a hardworking Midwestern farm family dies mysteriously in a car accident, his grown children discover he was keeping a devastating secret they could never have imagined.
This sounds like a show that could be good if it doesn’t get too cheesy. Check out the music video for the song below, and let us know if you’re a fan of the adaptation idea.
