The premiere of the Country music drama Monarch on Fox will have a grand impact. Firstly, Fox chose to premiere this musical drama right after the NFL championship with a double scoop, that’s two nights of this grand show. Additionally, the network aims to compete with Paramount’s Yellowstone in regards to Texas-style gut-wrenching human dramas. Only that they chose the story of the Romans, a family whose business is entertainment. More specifically, the wildly popular niche of Country music and the competitiveness it entails.
Monarch will take us on stage and backstage of a musical dynasty created by Dottie and Albie Roman, the heads of a family full of problems that need to do whatever it takes to stay on top. Additionally, the show was created by Melissa London Hilfers, Jon Feldman, Gail Berman (he produced “24” and “House”), Jason Owen —a successful country music genre music manager—, Jason Ensler, and Hend Baghdady. Now, without any further ado, let’s begin covering this topic here at Otakukart.
Monarch Premiere Date
Monarch will premiere on January 30, 2022, on Fox at 22:00, Eastern Time, United States. Firstly, the show will have a regular slot on Tuesdays at 22:00. Secondly, the country music drama about the Roman family is going to enjoy the mid-season ratings pump benefits following the NFL championship. As its premiere date is slated to launch right after the big sporting event. Lastly, the debut season will consist of a dozen one-hour run-time episodes. It is the first fully-owned series by Fox since the network got bought by giant entertainment company Dinsey.
Monarch was created by Mellissa London Hilfers and is all Texas! It will take us through several generations of Texans trying to run a family business, with the generational problems that situation can generate. Much like Yellowstone, this drama will have lots of things dealing with crime, ethical conflicts, shady businesses, all while covered under the glamourous glitter world of the country music business. We will get to know the Roman family clan, a successful, musically talented family that runs the country scene, all while dealing with heavy family woes. Just as their reign is challenged by a heavily competitive world, the heiress to the empire has some plans of her own.
