George & Tammy turned out pretty spectacular generally speaking, with some very serious caveats that for some viewers ultimately turned out to be fatal to their viewership. There is a reason that almost every single professional review of this series was glowing in its praise, but some fans balked.
George & Tammy
It’s the tale of two television shows, as two networks try to tap into the rich narrative of country music, one via fictionalized drama, and another via the true story of Tammy Wynette and George Jones. One didn’t go very well at all. Another is setting records. FOX’s “Monarch” vs. Showtime’s “George & Tammy.”
The limited series ‘George & Tammy: The Rise and Fall of Country Music’s King and Queen’ about the life and marriage of country legends Tammy Wynette and George Jones will premier on both Showtime and the Paramount Network. Starring Jessica Chastain as Tammy, and Michael Shannon as George.
