STATUS: previously in development (2007-2008 season)
DEVELOPMENT STAGE: ordered to series
ADDITIONAL NOTES: eight episodes
DESCRIPTION: (from MTV's press release) “MTV Show Choir” follows the Morgantown, West Virginia Show Choir, who perform songs in four part harmony, complete with elaborate costumes and choreography, throughout one competitive season. The choir is the pride of the town and has won local raves for their performances of Broadway show tunes. Unfortunately, when it comes to competition against other schools, they seem to always come in second. So this year, they've decided to switch things up a bit and perform modernized versions of current pop hits, something other show choirs have already been doing, complete with new hip choreography. During the eight episodes of this half-hour series, the cameras follow the choir through this transformation and watch as they struggle to balance schoolwork, relationships and competition to hopefully become Show Choir champions. “MTV Show Choir” is currently scheduled to premiere in Spring 2007. Executive Producers for “MTV Show Choir” are Dave Sirulnick, Amy Bailey and Lauren Lazin; for World of Wonder, Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato, Executive Producers; Todd Radnitz, Co-Executive Producer.
