If you're a fan of country singer Kellie Pickler, reality TV, Friends and Lucille Ball, you're in luck.
Cable channel CMT announced Thursday that it plans a fall television series starring Albemarle native Pickler and her songwriter husband, Kyle Jacobs.
According to Rolling Stone, CMT has green-lit 10 episodes of Pickler's 30-minute reality show. Ryan Seacrest, Pickler’s buddy from American Idol who created "Keeping Up With The Kardashians," will produce the show.
Pickler told Rolling Stone her show (working title: I Love Kellie Pickler) won't be music-heavy, but will focus on time spent with the couple's friends.

"We laugh so much. We have Redneck Supper Club dinner parties at our house and grill out,” Pickler told Rolling Stone. “I was a huge fan of Lucille Ball, and her funny shenanigans with Ethel that poor Ricky would have to get her out of. We want to play off that type of comedy — lighthearted but natural situations that I get into — and marry that with a Friends-type feel."
