Is NBC Going Country?

Word on the street is that new NBC honcho Ben Silverman is considering whether to bring USA nework’s Nashville Star - the country music talent show that he developed while heading up Reveille Prods - to NBC next summer. A network insider says no deal is set. Still, country is becoming a hot commodity on the broadcast nets. On Sept. 14, Fox launched the country docu-soap, Nashville , that focuses on up-and-comers trying to break into the country music biz.
