Description of Wayward Pines from Wiki: (sourced 8th May 2015)
“Wayward Pines is an upcoming American series based on the novel Pines by Blake Crouch.”
“The series stars Matt Dillon as a U.S. Secret Service Agent investigation into the disappearance of two Federal agents in a mysterious small Idaho town.It will be broadcast on FOX and is slated to première on May 14th, 2015”
Developed by Chad Hodge. Produced by M. Night Shyamalan.
TV Preview from Virgin Media TV:
for Wayward Pines Series One-episode One.
“After surviving a terrible car crash, secret service Agent Ethan Burke finds himself in the charming, bucolic town of Wayward Pines. But soon discovers that something isn’t quite right”.
A more recent preview of Wayward Pines from Gerard Gilbert-in The Independent Weekly TV Magazine-Radar dated 9th May 2015:
“Thursday-Wayward Pines-FOX-9pm and 2am. Somewhere in Idaho, but not far too from Twin Peaks in spirit, is the idyllic-seeming eponymous lumber town. Enter special agent Matt Dillon (with Juliette Lewis), on the search for two missing colleagues and a 10-part drama promising Lost-style mind-warp thrills”
So Nashville returns-yey!
So you gotta love Nashville-I do.
Wednesday 13th May @ 10pm.
E4 or E4 HD-144 and 145 on Virgin Media TV. (Nashville has moved from More 4 to E4 )
Somewhere here I have mentioned Nashville in brief.
Since it is more fun to watch than to write about. Kind of like soap opera on steroids mixed with a good dash of Country and Western music, original song-writing and singing, acoustic guitar and full blown performances on tour.
Plus gutsy women doing their thang and Southern gentlemen in cowboy hats with crooked smiles. If at all possible catching up on the first two series would be ideal. Other wise I may be here all day explaining it all.
Suffice to say operatic happenings abound in the world of business and music producing. In the home of Country and Western music: Nashville, Tennessee, U.S.A. For the characters. Who are all upcoming or established music stars.
There are different country western music styles, like with the more established star Rayna and Juliette, the young and upcoming star. Then there is Scarlett whose country music is more indie in style. Wonderful ballads, soulful and disturbing are created by Scarlett, who is ethereally beautiful.
See, here I am going off into a long description..We could be here all night.
Don’t forget the insanely talented Avery Barkley, with his gentle poetic air..they are all there.
Series Description of Nashville:
“A country music legend is forced to team up with a younger starlet to keep her career afloat”
Virgin Media TV description:
Series Three Episode One.
“Rayna must make a choice between two men and two different life paths. Meanwhile, Juliette auditions for a film biopic; and Scarlett takes a road trip home. Included: a performance by Florida Georgia”
