CMT may develop an after-show to follow the upcoming fifth season of the Nashville TV series, which it recently picked up after the drama was cancelled by ABC. Executive Vice President of Development Jayson Dinsmore told Deadline they’re kicking around the idea.
Here is more, from Deadline:
DINSMORE: [We] have been looking at and thinking about additional ideas for shoulder programming to support [Nashville]. When you’re a cable channel you have unique opportunities that you don’t have at the broadcast level.
DEADLINE: Can you share any ideas that you are kicking around?
DINSMORE: I’ll tell you one of them. We’re thinking about doing an aftershow. Nothing’s set in stone but imagine if we did sort of a Talking Dead for Nashville where we had some of the cast, maybe some performances, maybe some fans come and talk about the show. We do it in the studio, sort of engage the audience and that loyal fan base on a deeper level. That’s something we can afford to do in cable that they probably don’t have the opportunity at broadcast.
What do you think? Would you watch a Nashville after-show? What would you choose as a title? Who would you like to see host it?
