EXCLUSIVE: In a competitive situation, NBC has bought a light drama executive produced by country star Miranda Lambert. The deal brings both halves of country music’s “it” couple to NBC, with Lambert joining her husband, The Voice co-star Blake Shelton, whose relationship with the network played a role in the project landing there. Chad Hodge is set to write the project, which is inspired by Lambert’s experience growing up and centers on a couple who run a highly successful detective agency while also trying to raise two teenagers. Aaron Kaplan of Kapital Entertainment, Hodge and Lambert are executive producing with Lambert’s manager, Marion Kraft. The project was set up at ABC Family last year with a different writer.
