While filming the movie Memphis Beat: The Rise of Music in Los Angeles, producer Jerry Brucciello suggested that the television series titled “Graham Rogers in Memphis” would be a natural development of the successful book series. According to producer Bruce Canfield, the first episode is based upon the life of Graham, who is described as a down-to-earth, unassuming character, who only wants to provide for his family. A talented musician, Graham is also said to be quite musical, and a piano player, who also have a love of gospel music.
David Hyde Pierce, who plays Jim, is a former American actor who moved to California. According to producer Bruce Canfield, he initially landed a role on the popular TV show Married with Money, but was dissatisfied with the material so he pursued different roles, most notably a guest stint on the popular CSI television series. A fan of rap music, Pierce then decided to move to California and pursue his acting career, starring on such memorable shows as Family Ties, Cheers, Frasier, ER, and Men in Trees.
Graham’s Love and Mercy (also known as The Missing Piece) co-starred him alongside Dabney Coleman, who played his best known role on the show King of the Hill. Like Coleman, Dabney is also a native of Pennsylvania, having grown up in nearby Pittsburgh. Most recently, he had a role on the critically acclaimed HBO television show Vinyl. Pierce’s role of Jim, on the other hand, was portrayed by Jason Gann. Following the show’s eighth season, which wrapped up in January of this year, he moved to Los Angeles, where he continues to pursue his acting career.
