NASHVILLE – June 9, 2008 – Popular GONE COUNTRY cast mates, Maureen McCormick, Bobby Brown and Carnie Wilson are heading south again in the new eight-episode CMT reality series, OUTSIDER’S INN. Premiering Friday, August 15, OUTSIDER’S INN documents the toils and troubles that ensue when McCormick makes the unlikely decision to run a bed and breakfast in rural east Tennessee, and enlists the help of Brown and Wilson. Production is currently underway in Newport, Tenn.
OUTSIDER’S INN begins when McCormick stumbles upon an inn that overlooks the Great Smoky Mountains and decides to lease it with the option to buy. Upon realizing the gravity of this undertaking, McCormick brings in Brown and Wilson to assist her in this new endeavor. Each cast mate takes over a specific duty within the inn: McCormick takes over management of the Inn and property; Brown becomes entertainment director; and Wilson assumes the role of master chef. Without much time to settle into their roles, guests start checking in and each episode features new eclectic houseguests, as well as new problems for the trio to tackle.
OUTSIDER’S INN is executive produced by David Garfinkle and Jay Renfroe of Renegade 83 Productions. Claire McCabe, Bob Kusbit and John Hamlin serve as executive producers for CMT.
