The first trailer of George & Tammy jamming with life & music is out now!
Showtime has released an official trailer for the TV series, George & Tammy, created by Abe Silva and directed by John Hillcoat, where there are six-part limited series featuring Michael Shannon and Jessica Chastain as George Jones and Tammy Wynette, the king and queen of country music.
According to a report by Pitchfork, the series is based on the book The Three of Us: Growing Up With Tammy and George, written by Georgette Jones who is as said the couple’s daughter.
The series was picked up on Thursday by George & Tammy and follows the lives and careers of country music powerhouses George Jones and Tammy Wynette, played by Michael Shannon and Chastain, respectively.
Country icons (and former spouses) George Jones and Tammy Wynette, are the stars portrayed in the series, which debuts on Sunday, December 4 this year, when it runs on Showtime and the Paramount Network as well.
Chronically into country music, the power couple, George & Tammy who has a complicated relationship, inspire the most iconic music of all time. With over 30 number-one country songs between them, including duets “We’re Gonna Hold On,” “Golden Ring” and “Near You,” George and Tammy’s legacy, both musically and romantically, remains one of the greatest love stories ever told.
As Jessica Chastain & Michael Shannon are in lead roles, the other cast members who play a significant part in this series are Steve Zahn, Kelly McCormack, Walton Goggins, Pat Healy, David Wilson Barnes, and Katy Mixon. With the people, it is said that the roles they would be living in this series are quite natural and the information itself is making the viewers curious to watch what lay ahead.
The series time slot will allow Jessica Chastain and Michael Shannon to enter consideration for the SAG Awards, but importantly, will air in the same viewing window that helped Amanda Seyfried and Julia Garner land Emmy nominations last summer.
