ABC is trying its hand at the singing format once again with new show ‘Boyband.’
Full story below…
THR confirms that the network has ordered a 10-episode series that will sees contestants battle it out to join a new male music group.
Details such as judges, host, and format specifics are scarce. But the show is being produced by Matador Content (the team behind ”Lip Sync Battle’) and has been confirmed for a Summer 2017 launch.
It marks ABC’s return to the singing competition arena after last year’s ‘Rising Star’ was cancelled after gravity snatched those ratings down to the ground.
Could the network’s latest swing of the bat prove to be the winner?
Time will tell.
The news arrives at an interesting junction. For, as reported, rival networks (including NBC, who air ‘The Voice’) are said to be in a fierce bidding war for the rights to air a revived ‘American Idol.’
