Tim McGraw is one of seven celebrities who have signed on to the second season of NBC’s 'Who Do You Think You Are?' The show's return kicks off on Feb. 4, as they take selective celebrities through a journey that unearths surprising family history and how their ancestors are linked to pivotal events in history.
The show is executive produced by Dan Bucatinsky ('Lipstick Jungle,' 'The Comeback') and Lisa Kudrow ('Friends,' 'The Comeback'), the latter tagging along with each celebrity as he or she traces their family history -- with the help of genealogists and historians, of course. "It's not just like you show up for a couple hours and you're done," Kudrow explains. "It's kind of a commitment. So the people who want to do it are genuinely interested in finding answers to their questions."
Tim McGraw is the son of the late Philadelphia Phillies baseball pitcher Tug McGraw. The two didn't form a close relationship until Tim was 18, so it will be interesting to see if the show finds historical events linked to the both of them.
McGraw's 'Country Strong' co-star Gwyneth Paltrow will also appear on the upcoming season, as well as Rosie O'Donnell, Steve Buscemi, Kim Cattrall, Lionel Richie, Vanessa Williams and Ashley Judd. 'Who Do You Think You Are?' is an adaptation of the hit BBC television documentary series of the same name.
