In today’s roundup, MTV announces new docu-series “Winter Break: Hunter Mountain,” and the stars of “Nashville” set a special goodbye concert. 

GREENLIGHTS

MTV will debut a new docu-series called “Winter Break: Hunter Mountain” on Feb. 27 at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT. SallyAnn Salsano (“Jersey Shore”) will executive produce the show, and it will run for eight episodes. Similar to MTV’s “Floribama Shore,” the new show will follow eight young people who form relationships during a winter break. Hunter Mountain is an idyllic ski resort that offers twentysomethings the chance to escape their regular lives, ski and snowboard their hearts out and mingle with other likeminded singles. “Winter Break: Hunter Mountain” will document the lives of eight young people who connect over their need to getaway — and the impact their winter together has on their lives.

Stars of the CMT series “Nashville” will perform in the special farewell tour “Nashville” in Concert: Final Season Celebration at the Grand Ole Opry House in Nashville on March 25 before heading overseas to play the previously announced Farewell shows in the United Kingdom and Ireland in April.
