NBC Developing Music Reality Series

Aug 4, 2017  •  Post A Comment

After opting out when the “American Idol” reboot was being shopped, NBC is developing its own new music reality series, Deadline.com reports. The project from the company’s Universal Television Alternative studio follows the successful development of a new game show in “The Wall” and a breakout dance format, Jennifer Lopez’s “World of Dance.”

NBC Alternative & Reality Group President Paul Telegdy is positioning the show as a complement to the network’s thriving singing competition “The Voice.”

“We wanted to make a new show but we very much didn’t want to make a new singing show, we wanted to make a music show,” Telegdy told Deadline. “So we’ve been developing that, and development is a science as much as it is art but it is mainly an art.”

“Telegdy declined to discuss specifics about the new series as they are still being honed in, but noted that it will carry ‘the NBC reality brand pillars: humor, heart, courage,'” Deadline adds. “It also is expected to incorporate the way music is distributed and consumed these days, migrating from CDs to digital downloads and streaming.”
