ABC, DICK CLARK PRODUCTIONS AND FOR THE RECORD PARTNER TO DEVELOP LIVE MUSICAL EVENT 'FOR THE RECORD LIVE'

ABC, dick clark productions and For The Record partner to develop "For The Record Live," a unique, genre-bending production turning the soundtracks of iconic filmmakers into thrilling, immersive live-entertainment events. It was created by Shane Scheel and Anderson Davis. For The Record has staged productions based on the work of acclaimed directors Quentin Tarantino, John Hughes, Baz Luhrmann, Martin Scorsese and more.

"For The Record Live is a first-of-its-kind live musical event made for ABC," said Channing Dungey, president, ABC Entertainment. "The show will be a game changer for the genre, and the network is proud to partner with dick clark productions and For The Record for this exciting experience."

"The first time I saw For The Record, I knew it would make a great live TV event," said Mark Bracco, EVP of Programming and Development for dick clark productions. "We are thrilled to partner with ABC and For The Record to create a truly unique live-television experience."

"Five years ago, we set out to create a live event that celebrated movies and the people who make them. We built a production in Hollywood and filled it with talent, paying tribute to the biggest icons of the movie and music industries," said Shane Scheel, For The Record creator and producer. "Over the years, we've been privileged to welcome many of these directors and stars of their movies to our shows. Their experiences at our shows are what sparked the idea for the live television adaptation of For The Record. We could not imagine better partners than ABC and the legendary dick clark productions to help make our vision come alive on television."

For The Record began in 2010 in a small bar in East Hollywood. Since then, FTR has become the "must-see show" in LA and has journeyed beyond California to New York, Chicago, SXSW in Austin, Texas, the Montreal International Jazz Festival, a residency at Ace Hotel in Palm Springs, a dedicated venue on Norwegian Cruise Line's Escape featuring a show that celebrates the soundtracks of 80's Brat Pack films, a co-production with Cirque du Soleil in Las Vegas and an upcoming residency at the Las Vegas Palazzo Theatre celebrating the movie music of Baz Luhrmann, beginning on June 25, 2016. For The Record will return to Los Angeles on September 21, 2016 at The Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts to celebrate legendary filmmaker Martin Scorsese with "American Crime Requiem."

For The Record has featured stars and newly discovered talent from stage and screen, including Golden Globe-nominee Evan Rachel Wood ("Mildred Pierce," "Across The Universe"), "Dancing with the Stars" champion Rumer Willis, "Pretty Little Liars" Janel Parrish, Tarantino's "Death Proof" star Tracie Thoms ("Rent," "Devil Wears Prada"), "NCIS: LA" star Barrett Foa, Lindsey Gort ("The Carrie Diaries"), Lindsay Pearce ("Recovery Road," "Glee Project"), Ty Taylor (Vintage Trouble frontman), Audra Mae (singer/songwriter Heartbeat Song), Ginifer King (Broadway's "Gypsy," Nickelodeon's "Haunted Hathaways"), the star of Cirque du Soleil's Broadway show Paramour Ruby Lewis, and many more.

For The Record Live will be executive produced by Allen Shapiro, CEO of dick clark productions; Mike Mahan, president of dick clark productions; Mark Bracco, EVP of Programming and Development for dick clark productions; and Shane Scheel, co-creator of For The Record.
