Panettiere Lands ABC Pilot


Onetime HEROES cheerleader Hayden Panettiere (Lizzie, GUIDING LIGHT) is hoping to make a return to primetime television: she's nabbed a starring role in the ABC pilot NASHVILLE, according to Deadline. Fellow soap grad Jonathan Jackson (ex-Lucky, GENERAL HOSPITAL) will also be a series regular in the nighttime soap about family, love, politics and sex set against the backdrop of the Tennessee city's country music scene and its rising and fading stars. Panettiere will play teen sensation Juliette.
