On Wednesday, Fox unveiled the first trailer for its upcoming drama that plays out like “Dynasty” in the country music world, with a top-notch cast including Susan Sarandon, Trace Adkins and Anna Friel.

According to the network’s press release, “Monarch” is described as “a Texas-sized multigenerational musical drama about America’s first country music family.”

Adkins plays the role of “Texas Truth Teller” and reigning king of country music Albie Roman, who, alongside his “incredibly talented, but tough as nails” wife Dottie Cantrell Roman (Sarandon), created a dynasty of country music that is worth millions.

“But even though the Roman name is synonymous with authenticity, the very basis of their success is a lie,” the announcement notes. And when their reign as the country’s kingship is in jeopardy, heir to the crown Nicolette “Nicky” Roman (Friel) will stop at nothing to protect her family’s legacy, while ensuring her own quest for celebrity.”

“Monarch” will debut mid-season, with a two-night premiere starting Sunday, January 30, immediately following Fox’s coverage of the NFC Championship.
