Tired of daytime TV schedules filled with talk shows and soap operas? Something new may be coming to shake up the schedule, with Mark Burnett and Trifecta Entertainment shopping a reality-themed singing competition called "One in a Million," reports B&C.
The half-hour show, which is being shopped for a fall 2011 slot, will pit four contestants against each other in a singing competition. Three judges will pick a daily winner, who will then compete in a Friday show. Those weekly winners will then move on to a semifinals, and from there an overall winner will receive $1 million.
According to the article, "People have been talking about how soap operas aren’t working as much in daytime," Trifecta CEO Hank Cohen said. "But people always like compelling, dramatic stories. I started thinking, ‘What if you took those stories and wrapped them around a singing competition?’ " Cohen approached Burnett’s company to develop the show, and Trifecta is now taking the show to stations.
