GET READY TO BE "PITCH SLAPPED" WITH LIFETIME'S NEW A CAPPELLA DOCUSERIES PREMIERING JANUARY 5

LOS ANGELES, CA (November 9, 2015) -- Lifetime's puts singing in the spotlight with new docu-series Pitch Slapped (#PitchSlapped) premiering January 5, 2016 at 10pm ET/PT. The eight hour-long episodes reveal what it's really like in the intensely competitive world of high school a cappella. The pressure is on when two cross-town rival teams from New Jersey are given the chance to work with the world's best coaches and face off in weekly competitions, crescendoing in a champion sing off. Vocal powerhouse Deke Sharon (Pitch Perfect) will stop at nothing to get his team, Stay Tuned from Cherry Hill, to come out of their shells and get them in-tune while a cappella rock-star and performance coach Diana Preisler (Blue Jupiter) guides The Voices from Allendale, to harmonize their way to a win.

Sharon is contemporary a cappella's most prolific arranger and currently producing The Sing-Off worldwide. He also served as arranger, on-site music director and vocal producer for the highly successful feature films Pitch Perfect and Pitch Perfect 2. Sharon is the founder, director and arranger for the pioneering a cappella group House Jacks and has shared the stage with countless music legends, including Ray Charles, James Brown, Crosby Stills and Nash, Run DMC, The Temptations, LL Cool J and the Four Tops, and performed for luminaries including President Bill Clinton.

Preisler's background as a singer, voice-over actress and performance coach has garnered her a reputation as one of the most respected a cappella coaches in the industry. Preisler has toured the world as the manager, artistic director and lead female singer of successful a cappella group, and international vocal sensation Blue Jupiter, and has been featured on Nickelodeon, the Huffington Post and Oprah. She can often be found sitting on panels for prestigious a cappella competitions around the country. She's graced the theatrical stage on multiple national Broadway tours, such as Fiddler on the Roof and A Christmas Carol.

Pitch Slapped is produced by All3Media America and Studio Lambert Associates along with InsomniaTV, who conceptualized the project. The series is executive produced by Stephen Lambert, (Undercover Boss), Greg Goldman (True Tori) and Glenn Schubert in conjunction with Lifetime's Eli Lehrer, Mary Donahue and Colleen Conway Grogan.
