Miranda Lambert to Co-Produce TV Show Based on Her Childhood
Now that Miranda Lambert has added the Female Vocalist of the Year prize to her basket, she’s gearing up for a completely different venture. The ‘The House That Built Me’ ACM winner is developing an hour-long show for ABC Family based on her childhood in Texas.
The show, according to the Hollywood Reporter, is a scripted drama and will focus on a family in Texas, where the parents are private investigators and the children help to solve crimes. We can’t confirm whether Lambert ever dabbled in her father’s business, but the storyline is mostly true-to-life — her dad did partner up with her mother as a P.I. after he retired as a police officer.
Lambert will act as an executive producer to the show, alongside her mother, Beverly Lambert, her manager, Marion Kraft, Aaron Kaplan of Kapital Entertainment and Scott Kaufer of Memphis Beat, who will also help write.
Lambert, who was raised in the 5,000-person town of Lindale, Texas, has climbed to great heights in the country music scene since winning ‘Nashville Star’ in 2003. Not only did she claim Female Vocalist of the Year for the third time at Sunday’s ACMs, the singer has also earned countless awards and praises for her single ‘The House That Built Me’ — including a Grammy for Best Female Country Vocal Performance.
Additionally, the 27-year-old Texas musician — and soon to be television producer — pocketed Single Record of the Year, Video of the Year, and Song of the Year for the hit single at the ACM Awards just two days ago.
