ABC Orders Malibu Country, Nashville

Two ABC shows ordered for the fall season will have Nashville connections. Malibu Country stars Reba McEntire as a newly-divorced mom who relocates her three kids and mother (Lily Tomlin) to Malibu, Calif., to reignite her own singing career after her rock star husband burns through her money and cheats on her. The series will film in Los Angeles. Meanwhile, the family soap Nashville revolves around a country star in her prime (Connie Britton) who faces competition from a rising talent (Hayden Panettiere). Nashville will film in Nashville. Both shows started as pilots and have been formally ordered as series, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
