VH1'S NEWEST COMPETITION SERIES "SIGNED" ENLISTS MUSIC MOGULS RICK ROSS, THE-DREAM AND LENNY S

PREMIERES WEDNESDAY, JULY 26 AT 9PM ET/PT

(New York, NY) July 11, 2017 - VH1 today announced that the new music competition show "SIGNED" will premiere on Wednesday, July 26th at 9PM ET/PT. The eight, hour-long episodes follow three moguls - rapper, entrepreneur and hip-hop artist Rick Ross, recording artist and Grammy award-winning songwriter The-Dream and Roc Nation's SVP of A&R / Artist Management Lenny S - as they work to develop unsigned hip-hop and R&B artists in Atlanta.

"SIGNED" features aspiring musicians who will undergo auditions and workshops to hone their craft and determine if they really have what it takes to get signed to a deal. Through personal sessions with the music moguls and surprise visits from superstars like DJ Khaled, Meek Mill and Bangladesh, these young artists will face challenges and eliminations as they work their way toward a finale performance showcase. The artists who most impress the moguls have an opportunity to be signed to Maybach Music, Radio Killa Records or Roc Nation.

"Three of the biggest bosses in music coupled with the raw talent of the contestants makes for a fresh new take on a competition series" says Nina L. Diaz, EVP, Head of Unscripted, MTV, VH1 and Logo. "We're thrilled to partner with MGM, Mark Burnett, Rick Ross, The-Dream and Lenny S and can't wait for fans to experience this authentic and compelling journey."

"What an incredible opportunity it has been to bring together these cutting edge, one of a kind music moguls who are at the top their games. Watching them discover and mentor the next greatest talents in hip hop and R&B is a new type of gritty music competition," said executive producer Mark Burnett, President, MGM Television Group and Digital. "Summertime on VH1 is perfect for this show."

"For 'SIGNED' we didn't build a shiny floor set in Hollywood, instead we took our cameras to the real, raw streets and recording studios of Atlanta. It is gritty, intense and life changing for the aspiring artists who ultimately get signed. They are given the once in a lifetime opportunity to collaborate with the biggest moguls in music today," said Barry Poznick, President, Unscripted Television, MGM.
