While serving as a municipal administrator for more than 15 years, David Frasher leverages his experience in the public service sector to serve as the City Manager of Hot Springs, Arkansas. Also a music fan, David Frasher especially enjoys the music of the legendary Johnny Cash.
CMT and Thinkfactory Media teamed up to produce a scripted TV show featuring the 1956 jam session of Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Carl Perkins. It is set to be released as an eight-episode drama series with a working title of “Million Dollar Quartet.”
Viacom Network held casting calls and callbacks last February 13 and 14 at the Humes Preparatory Academy Middle School. The network decided to cast Kevin Fonteyne as a 24-year old Cash, Drake Milligan as a 21-year old Presley, and Christian Lees as a 21-year old Lewis.
The Million Dollar Quartet is an adaptation of the Tony Award-winning Broadway musical. It is a remake of the monumental congregation of these musical geniuses at the Sam Phillips’ Sun Records amidst the Civil Rights Movement in 1956. The scripted drama is set to debut in November, coinciding with the 60th anniversary of the recordings.
