USA Network Picks Up Singing Series ‘The Choir’

The Choir (BBC America)

The USA Network is getting into new territory. The network has picked up a new show entitled The Choir, a singing series that is derived from the UK version of the same name as confirmed by Deadline. The show will debut on USA’s line-up this coming February 2013 in a ten episode run that will be hosted by Gareth Malone who is also the host of the British version that airs on BBC America network.

The series will follow Malone as he creates ten different choirs throughout various locations in the United States. Each episode will then feature the talented groups and their abilities in what is described as a “defining performance” and a “substantial emotional ending.” The American version of ‘The Choir’ will be produced by Shed Media U.S. with the help of executive producers Sam Whittaker and Stephanie Schwam. Warner Bros International Television Production will take on international distribution.

What do you think competition junkies? Does ’The Choir’ sound like an exciting new musical series that will entertain?
