Behind the Scenes of ABC Nashville

A successful first season and a contemptuous back-and-forth later, Nashville and its creator are back in Music City.

It’s hard for a television show to make it past its first season. From 2009 to 2012, 65 percent of network TV programs didn’t; in the same period only 39 percent of new shows on ABC received a second season. The odds were against Nashville’s survival, and probably also against its production in Tennessee. First-year costs for the new show were high; each set at the show’s soundstage was constructed with an almost clinical devotion to detail, which required as many builders, painters, and electricians as it would to rebuild the Bluebird itself. Directors and writers were flown from California to Tennessee when their episodes were filmed, and producers were relocated.
