Callie Khouri: Nashville

Produced by:

In 1992, Callie Khouri won an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay for Thelma & Louise. Twenty-one years later, she's doing something that she never would have imagined: writing and producing a network television show. But with the borders between entertainment media becoming more and more porous, Khouri knows that part of staying relevant is being able to move around in an industry that is rapidly changing. Her ABC show, Nashville, is a look inside another cutthroat industry: country music. Connie Britton and Hayden Panettiere star as two dueling country music superstars, the elder Britton fighting to stay relevant, and the younger Panettiere fighting to prove she's got artistic chops. Khouri talks about their unique integration of new country music into the show, and how being a woman writer has changed since she brought home the Oscar gold.
