“I’m working on a couple of shows," shared Dierks.
Cody wanted all of the details.
“One [TV show] is going to be about the Hot Country Knights. It's more of a 'Spinal Tap' meets 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' type of situation," shared Dierks. "The Fox show, though, is more of a "'Cheers' of Nashville" kind of thing. Of course, you remember the show 'Cheers' based out of Boston. This show revolves around a bar in Nashville, and you have this great bar owner, who's seen it all, been everywhere, and is kind of like a Sally Fields type character."
Dierks continued that his show will feature musician-based characters and will be focused on sharing the stories of those trying to make it in a city that is reminiscent of "hypothetical Nashville that we all think about it. Not the crazy busy city we live in now."
"The Mountain" singer is really enjoying the process and has teamed up with sitcom's funniest, collaborating with one of the main writers responsible for the popular show, 'Modern Family.'
"I’m learning a lot about the TV business, buts it’s like having a song on hold. You write a song, and somebody puts it on hold, but that doesn’t mean that it will make the record. It’s a long ways to go. We will see!"
Dierks has asked Cody for a commitment to play a recurring role in the show. "There is going to be a guy at the bar, every day, just sitting in a trash can full of ice. And, he has to have good pecks and be physically fit."
“I can do this," laughs Cody. "Say when. I have lots of practice.”
