FOX Orders Country Music Drama 'Monarch' to Series

FOX has today given a series order to the original drama series Monarch created by Melissa London Hilfers. The drama joins the broadcast network's upcoming 2021-22 schedule.

The Texas-sized, multigenerational musical drama centers on America's first family of country music. The Romans are fiercely talented, but while their name is synonymous with honesty, the very foundation of their success is a lie. When their reign as country royalty is put in jeopardy, Nicky Roman, the heir to the crown, already battling an industry stacked against her, will stop at nothing to protect her family's legacy.

Hilfers created the drama, with Michael Rauch (Royal Pains, Instinct) serving as showrunner. They will executive produce with Gail Berman, Hend Baghdady and Jason Owen. Fox Entertainment, The Jackal Group and Sandbox Entertainment will produce.
