Mick Fleetwood and Fox are collaborating on a musical drama called 13 Songs.
The Fleetwood Mac co-founder and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer will serve as an executive producer on the drama, which has gotten a screenplay order from the broadcast network.
Lionsgate, Polygram Entertainment, Thruline Entertainment, and Megamix are behind the drama. Fleetwood executive produces alongside Willie Mercer and Ron West of Thruline, Gillian Bohrer of Megamix, and David Blackman of Polygram.
13 Songs debuts as Fox continues to prioritize musically-driven scripted originals for its primetime lineup. The television network has pushed Monarch to the ground in order to continue airing the serialized country music drama without interruption.
Song-driven scripted entertainment produces supplemental money from music and records sales when it is successful. Such was the case with Fox’s Empire and Glee, the latter of which grew into a big franchise owing to global tours, downloads, and merchandise.
CAA represents Fleetwood; UTA, Thruline, and Jamie Feldman represent Reiser; Thruline, Rothman Brecher, and Brad Small represent Prince; and CAA and Carlos Goodman represent Levine.
