Deadline Hollywood just reported that Little Rock native Mary Steenburgen is slated to star (and sing) in "Outlaw Country," a new FX pilot drama placed in the precarious world of Nashville music and Southern crime.
This marks the first casting in the long-anticipated series from the station that does "shady people doing shady things" dramas with ease.
I've called for a Dixie Mafia drama for years now. And Robert Altman's "Nashville" is, bar none, my favorite movie ever.
So "giddy-up" say I!
