TV Preview

Nashville

9-10 PM · FOX · Debuts Sept. 14

CONCEPT Musicians try to break into the country-music biz — from the creators of Laguna Beach.

THE SCOOP For their next ''docudrama,'' Gary and Julie Auerbach decided to relocate: ''New York or L.A. people, when they deal with middle America, they kind of make fun of it,'' says Gary Auerbach. ''But really that's where most of your viewers are coming from.'' Nashville will trail newcomers as well as almost-famous types like Jamey Johnson, who wrote the ubiquitous ''Honky Tonk Badonkadonk.''

BOTTOM LINE As addictive and stylish as Laguna Beach but with actual stakes — like million-dollar record deals.
