UPN announced Thursday its new 10-episode reality series “The Road to Stardom With Missy Elliott” will premiere Wednesday, Jan. 5 at 8 p.m. (ET).

The show takes a group of young recording artist wannabes and eliminates one each episode until there is a sole performer standing who then claims a $100,000 prize. Ms. Elliott will help launch the winner’s career by signing him or her to her record label and releasing his or her first single.

The panel that will select the final winner includes Ms. Elliot, performer Teena Marie, Grammy Award-winning producer Dallas Austin and Mona Scott, president of Violator Management.

Arnold Shapiro, Allison Grodner, Mona Scott, Jay Blumenfield and Anthony Marsh are executive producers. Ms. Elliott is co-executive producer. Ms. Scott and Jessica Horowitz are creators. The show is a production of Shapiro/Grodner Productions in association with Monami.
