Rumer Willis, Bethany Joy Lenz join E! pilot 'Songbyrd'
Lenz and Willis have been cast as leads in the Diane Warren drama "Songbyrd," executive produced by Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, Deadline reports. The show centers on Lauren Byrd (Lenz), a character who is loosely based on hit songwriter Warren.
Lauren, a writer of his love songs, employs a small staff, including sister Mickey (Willis), to manage her eccentric yet wildly successful process. Mickey is a smart, somewhat introverted young woman trying to determine her next step after an "episode" forced her to drop out of law school. Now working for her sister, she secretly works on her own singing and songwriting.
During her tenure on "One Tree Hill," Lenz showed off her vocal chops as her character Haley developed a music career, while Willis has only more recently began to display her singing ability.
Do you think Lenz and Willis could work in perfect harmony in "Songbyrd"?
