TVLine Items: Nashville Vet’s Netflix Role, Younger Star Has Power and More

Charles Esten is tuning up for a new TV role: The Nashville alum has signed on to star in Netflix’s young-adult drama series Outer Banks, the streamer announced on Friday.

The series, set to debut in 2020, centers on a tight-knit group of North Carolina teens who embark on a mission to find their ringleader’s missing father. In the process, they stumble across a treasure map that unearths a long-buried secret. Esten will play Ward Cameron, a wealthy, self-made businessman who exudes a casual authority. He also is father to Sarah (The Originals‘ Madelyn Cline) and Rafe (Love, Simon‘s Drew Starkey).

Esten wrapped up his role as country singer Deacon on ABC/CMT’s Nashville last year after six seasons. His other TV roles include Whose Line Is It Anyway?, Enlightened, Big Love and The Office.
