AXS TV Scores Cable Rights for ‘Nashville’

Country-music drama “Nashville” will enjoy an encore on cable’s AXS.

The independent cable network said it had locked up a “multiyear licensing agreement” for the first three seasons of the sudsy series, which runs on ABC and meshes twangy tunes with stories of the turbulent lives of the people who sing them. AXS TV will launch its run of “Nashville” in the fall. The pact gives AXS the exclusive window to show the program on cable in primetime.

“‘Nashville’ is the perfect complement to our growing lineup of music-inspired series,” said Mark Cuban, CEO of AXS TV, which is a partnership involving founder Mark Cuban, AEG, Ryan Seacrest Media, Creative Artists Agency and CBS. “With its talented cast, dramatic storylines and powerful performances from industry icons and rising stars, we are confident that ‘Nashville’ will connect with our viewers, while attracting a new audience of those who may have missed out on watching from the beginning of the series,” Cuban said in a prepared statement. “This will also be a great opportunity for its devoted fanbase to experience ‘Nashville’ all over again.”

Produced by Lionsgate Television, ABC Studios and Opry Entertainment, “Nashville” is exec produced by Dee Johnson, Callie Khouri and Steve Buchanan.
