New vocal group competition TV show
The "Sing-Off" may have been cancelled but there's another vocal group competition in the works. Randy Jackson has sold a singing competition show to MTV. The show has no title at the moment and will feature sibling singing groups competing with each other. Think The Jackson Five, The Beach Boys, or more recently, the Jonas Brothers. The Jackson-produced show, which is early stages of development, is getting ready to start casting and looking for family bands and groups, a source said. The American Idol judge’s Dream Merchant 21 Entertainment has partnered on the project with DiGA, the production company of former top MTV executives Tony DiSanto and Liz Gately, which is backed by Ben Silverman’s Electus. The sibling series expands Jackson’s relationship with MTV, where he executive produces America’s Best Dance Crew, currently in its seventh season.
