Naomi and Wynonna Judd are the subject of a new music anthology series titled Icon. Variety reports that the one-hour Fox docu-series will focus on the true stories behind music legends. The first season will focus on the iconic mother-daughter duo The Judds, who ruled the country charts in the '80s and the early '90s with songs such as "Mama He's Crazy," "Grandpa (Tell Me 'Bout the Good Old Days), "Rockin' With the Rhythm of the Rain," "Girls Night Out" and "Love Can Build a Bridge."

The Judds will executive produce the series along with Gail Berman, Hend Baghdady and Jason Owen. Les Borsai, Greg Hill, Cactus Moser and Larry Strickland will produce.

The Judds stopped touring regularly in 1991 following Naomi's Hepatitis C diagnosis, though they have reunited for special concerts. Following the duo's farewell tour, Wynonna launched a successful solo career with hits such as "No One Else on Earth," "I Saw the Light," "She is His Only Need" and "Tell Me Why."

In 2011, the Judds began starring in their own reality series on the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN). In 2018, the duo  was the subject on the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum's Dream Chasers exhibit.

Fox is currently working on developing another country music project. The network is developing a one hour drama series centered on a high-powered family in the country music world.
