ABC has slated Boy Band for a ten-episode run this summer to find the next big boy band.
Viewers will vote for their five talented singers over the show’s run – in effect, creating the new boy band.
A host and premiere date are TBD.
AMERICA WILL DECIDE WHO WILL BE IN THE NEXT GREAT ‘BOY BAND’ THIS SUMMER ON ABC
This summer, ABC will debut a new music competition series, “Boy Band,” where talented singers battle it out to become a member of the next great music sensation. And for the first time ever, viewers at home will vote for their favorite five band members, live, creating a group America can truly call its own.
The 10-episode series will capture the audition process and behind-the-scenes excitement where young vocal talents compete for a chance to show the world that they have what it takes to win a coveted spot in the band and receive a recording contract with Hollywood Records.
“Boy Band” is produced by Matador Content. Todd Lubin, Jay Peterson, Jane Mun and Joel Relampagos serve as executive producers.
