Nashville on ABC: First Trailer, Photos!

at . Comments

ABC really hopes viewers want to move to Nashville this fall.

Among its 2012-2013 pickups, the network has given the green light to this country music-based soap opera, which stars Connie Britton as Rayna James, a long-time singer whose popularity has been slipping.

Enter Hayden Panettiere's Juliette Barnes, an up and coming artist who goes on tour with Rayna… and who also has plans of her own that involve upstaging the veteran. Powers Boothe, Charles Esten, Eric Close, Clare Bowen as Scarlett, Jonathan Jackson, Sam Palladio and Robert Wisdom also play roles on the upcoming drama.

Nashville will air on Wednesday nights at 10. Click around a few series premiere pics below and then also take your first look at new ABC programs Last Resort and 666 Park Avenue.
