E! Network has scripted and cast one of the network’s first scripted dramas entitled Songbyrd. The show, which at this point is in its pilot stage, is loosely based on singer Diane Warren.
Lauren (Bethany Joy Lenz of One Tree Hill fame) is a songwriter who employs a small staff, including sister Mickey (Rumor Willis), to manage her unconventional, but successful, process. Mickey is Lauren’s sister, a smart and shy young woman, trying to decide on her future. Now working for her sister, Mickey secretly works on her own music.
Songbyrd is from the creative minds of former Grey’s Anatomy executive producer Krista Vernoff and produced by Smash’s Craig Zadan and Neil Meron.
