A producer on the television show currently renovating Mad Donna’s in East Nashville has confirmed to the Scene that Sheryl Crow is involved in the project.
The restaurant and music venue abruptly closed its doors last week, though rumors flew that it was part of a Bar Rescue-style revamp.
“The owners would like to extend their sincere appreciation to you all for the last 9 years and are excited to announce exciting details for a new project soon,” the restaurant’s management wrote on Facebook last week.
This week, signs went up around the neighborhood indicating California-based Buckingham Television was filming a reality television pilot episode at Mad Donna’s, and Eli Holzman, executive producer for the company, confirmed Tuesday that Crow, the Nashville-based singer, was tied to the show.
Holzman declined to provide more information. He has previously been an executive producer on Project Runway and Undercover Boss.
Filming was scheduled monday for the exterior of the new restaurant, according to notification fliers distributed in the neighborhood.
On Tuesday, a new awning at the entrance of restaurant was installed, which reads “Wylee’s Cafe & Bar.”
