‘Patsy & Loretta’: Kyle Schmid & Joe Tippett To Star In Lifetime Movie About Country Music Icons

Exclusive: Kyle Schmid (Six) and Joe Tippett (Rise) are set as the male leads opposite Megan Hilty and Jessie Mueller in Lifetime’s Patsy & Loretta, an original movie about the friendship between country music stars Patsy Cline, played by Smash alum Hilty and Loretta Lynn, played by Broadway’s Waitress star Mueller.

Schmid will play Charlie Dick, Patsy’’s second husband. Tippett will portray Doolittle “Mooney” Lynn, Loretta’s husband and father of their four children.

Set to film this month on location in Nashville, Patsy & Loretta will be executive produced by Neil Meron, in his first solo project since the death of longtime producing partner Craig Zadan. Oscar-winning Thelma & Louise writer Callie Khouri is directing, and Mark Nicolson is co-ep.

When the singers first met, Cline already was one of the biggest stars in country music and Lynn was starting out with little to her name but a $17 guitar.
