Also joining the cast members of the musical drama are Susan Sarandon, Albie Roman, Beth Ditto, John Sasse, and Maegan Holder.
Monarch follows the story of the Romans, the home of America’s earliest family of country music.
An article published on Deadline presented a short synopsis of the upcoming drama: “The Romans are headed by the insanely talented, but tough as nails Queen of Country Music Dottie Cantrell Roman (Sarandon). Along with her beloved husband, Albie (Adkins), Dottie has created a country music dynasty,”
“But even though the Roman name is synonymous with authenticity, the very foundation of their success is a lie. And when their reign as country royalty is in jeopardy, heir to the crown Nicolette ‘Nicky’ Roman (Friel) will stop at nothing to protect her family’s legacy while ensuring her quest for stardom.”
Monarch is expected to premiere in January 2022.
