Following the success of singing competitions such as 'The Voice' and 'American Idol,' ABC has decided to create a new music-based reality show called 'Boy Band,' which aims to find America's next great all-male singing troupe.
Boy Band will be a 10-episode series that will be produced by ABC. The show will be hosted by Rita Ora and feature expert guidance from stars such as the Backstreet Boys’ Nick Carter and Spice Girls alum Emma Bunton. The idea behind the show is to uncover young talent from across the country as contestants compete to become America's next great boy band. The winning group will then receive a recording contract with Hollywood Records.
With the success of groups such as One Direction, which was formed through the British televised singing competition The X Factor, the new show could birth the next musical sensation.
