Jonathan Jackson is certainly having a good week! On Wednesday, the former GENERAL HOSPITAL star was nominated for his ninth Daytime Emmy Award for his portrayal of Lucky, and now comes word that his ABC pilot, NASHVILLE, has been picked up!
The network announced today that it has ordered the soapy drama surrounding the country music community in Nashville, TN, to series. FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS' Connie Britton will star as fading country singer Rayna. Jackson is set to play bad boy aspiring songwriter Avery in the musical drama, which will also feature Hayden Panettiere (Sarah, ONE LIFE TO LIVE; Lizzie, GUIDING LIGHT) as Rayna's newest competition, rising starlet Juliette.
