CMT PARTNERS WITH THE CREATOR OF "THE HILLS" AND "LAGUNA BEACH" FOR NEW UNSCRIPTED SERIES "MUSIC CITY"

Debuting Early Next Year, This Series From Lionsgate Follows a Group of Young, Aspiring Artists Chasing Their Dreams in the Home of Country Music

NASHVILLE - September 27, 2017 - CMT today announced the greenlight of new docu-series "Music City" from famed unscripted executive producer Adam DiVello, the creator of iconic shows such as "The Hills" and "Laguna Beach", through DiVello's Done and Done Productions banner. "Music City" reunites CMT and Lionsgate, who partnered last year to save fan-favorite "Nashville."

"Music City" follows a group of young emerging artists chasing their dreams of success in the music industry, while struggling to balance their personal lives and relationships. Filmed in Nashville, TN, the eight-episode series is slated to premiere early next year alongside "Nashville," which returns for new episodes in January.

Production on "Music City" comes on the heels of a strong year for CMT, which has posted ten consecutive months of year-over-year ratings growth with Adults 18-49 and with Women 18-49. Quarter-to-date, CMT is up +17% from year ago with Adults 18-49 and up +20% with Women 18-49. (L+SD, CMT Total Day).

"Music has always played a huge role in the storytelling process of my past series," said creator/executive producer Adam DiVello, "and with 'Music City,' we'll take that element to another level, as we document the real-life struggles, heartaches, and drama of those chasing their dreams of stardom. Nashville is such an exciting city and I can't wait to share with the world the stories of this incredibly talented cast we've put together."

"After a banner year of growth, we've enlisted one of the industry's most influential and talented producers to help guide our ever-expanding fanbase deeper inside our beloved hometown," said Frank Tanki, General Manager of CMT and TV Land. "Like its sister series, 'Nashville,' 'Music City' will spotlight a group of young artists as they grapple with love, life and the pursuit of their dreams through the incomparable lens of the creator of some of the most memorable series of the last 20 years. We welcome all the fans of 'Laguna Beach' and 'The Hills' that are now our target audience into the world of 'Music City,' and CMT as a whole."

"We are very excited to work with our incredible partners at CMT to delve deeply into the lives of six residents of Music City," said Jennifer O'Connell, Executive Vice President, Alternative Programming, Lionsgate. "While cinematically capturing the beauty of Tennessee's booming state capitol and its vibrant hot spots, executive producer Adam DiVello again has brought together a special mix of creative twentysomethings as they all juggle new opportunities, relationships, jobs and unexpected challenges."

DiVello first gained prominence as a producer on "Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County," which he also developed. The series, which introduced a new look and style to reality television that quickly caught on with viewers, followed the personal lives and exploits of a group of high school students and paved the way for DiVello's highly successful spin-off, "The Hills," which ran for six seasons on MTV. Focusing on the drama-filled lives and careers of several young women including "Laguna Beach's" Lauren Conrad, the show became one of the most talked-about series on television and led to another spin-off, "The City," which DiVello also created and executive produced.

"Music City" is produced by Done and Done Productions in association with Lionsgate. Adam DiVello serves as creator and executive producer.
