The first time you heard Carrie Underwood’s “Two Black Cadillacs,” you know you thought it sounded like a Lifetime movie or a storyline on a daytime soap opera. Well, your thoughts have been read by the powers that be at Fox, as they have decided to take the story of infidelity, betrayal, and the ultimate revenge — murder — and adapt it for the small screen.
According to reports, a six-hour “limited edition event series” (referred to as a “miniseries” in the days of yore) is in the works, and while Underwood won’t be trying her hand at acting on this particular project, she will be sitting behind the cameras. Underwood will reportedly be an executive producer on the project, along with Jerry Bruckheimer of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, CSI: Miami, CSI: NY, Without a Trace, Cold Case, The Amazing Race, and more.
“Two Black Cadillacs” will likely translate well under the watchful eye of Bruckheimer, considering his extensive criminal-based show catalog. This expertise will come in handy, as the song, which Underwood co-wrote with Hillary Lindsey and Josh Kear, is about a cheating man, his wife, his mistress, and an incidental demise. Once the two women find out about his wandering eyes and traveling hands, they decide to join forces and teach the low down dirty dog a lesson that sends him straight to the grave.
No news has been released about who will take on roles in the television adaptation of “Two Black Cadillacs” as of yet, but we are curious to hear who you think would do these roles justice.
