CMT has issued a series order for “Racing Wives,” an eight episode hour-long non-scripted series from Executive Producer Jenny Daly and T Group Productions. “Racing Wives” follows the never-before-seen private lives of captivating women who are married to world famous race car drivers.
The logline: A stone’s throw away from the high-octane race tracks where legends rise and sometimes fall, the “Racing Wives” offers a rare glimpse inside the opulent eye-popping mansions and private planes that regally decorate the banks of Lake Norman, North Carolina. The cast features sisters-in-law Ashley and SamanthaBusch, married to Kurt and Kyle Busch who are each balancing family life with their own ambitions. Looking to take her rightful spot in the wives’ club is Whitney Ward Dillon, former cheerleader and now wife of Austin Dillon, who is torn between fitting in with her fellow wives while staying true to her best friend and cheerleader ride-or-die Mariel Lane.
Also featured is Amber Balcaen, an aspiring NASCAR driver who is new to the racing community and left everything, including her boyfriend, back home in Canada to come to North Carolina to pursue her dream.
CMT has also renewed “Music City” from “The Hills” creator Adam DiVello and Lionsgate, for a ten-episode second season. Both shows will premiere early next year and will be paired together.
