EXCLUSIVE: Fox is revving up Two Black Cadillacs, a six-hour limited event series based on the hit Carrie Underwood song. Underwood will executive produce the project, now in development, with Jerry Bruckheimer. Written by Ildy Modrovich (Necessary Roughness), Two Black Cadillacs, from Jerry Bruckheimer TV and Warner Bros TV, explores a murderous love triangle in the modern South. Or, as the producers put it, Hell hath no fury like two women scorned.
Written by Underwood, Hillary Lindsey and Josh Kear, “Two Black Cadillacs” was a platinum single from Underwood’s 2012 album Blown Away. In it, a wife and a mistress realize they are involved with the same guy and conspire to kill him. Here is the music video directed by P.R. Brown.
Underwood, Bruckheimer and Modrovich will executive produce Two Black Cadillacs with Jonathan Littman, while KristieAnne Reed will co-executive produce. The project reunites Modrovich with Bruckheimer TV. Modrovich got her start as a writer on the company’s crime drama CSI: Miami and also worked on the Bruckheimer-produced Eleventh Hour.
Underwood has a huge fan following, which helped NBC’s live staging of The Sound Of Music which she starred in to draw record ratings. Underwood, Modrovich and Bruckheimer TV are repped by CAA.
