Grammy Award winning singer songwriter John Legend will be soon seen stepping into production as well. The All of Me singer, who has performed in a collegiate a cappella group at the University of Pennsylvania himself, is said to be executive producing a documentary style series on an a cappella competition series.
Pop, the former TV Guide Network that has been renamed and marketed as a destination for pop culture enthusiasts, announced the series at its upfront announcement for the 2015-16 TV season. Inspired by the hit movie Pitch Perfect, the series Sing It On will premiere in the US this month. The eight episode series will go behind the scenes to follow five a cappella collegiates as they compete in the International Championship of Collegiate A Capella finals. The series is co produced by Legend’s Get Lifted Film Company and Core Media Group, which also makes American Idol and So You Think You Can Dance.
