American Supergroup is a music competition program showcasing the creation and evolution of the best new band in the country. Guided by a panel of music experts, 25 finalists will be selected to form 5 groups of 5 members each — best guitarist, best drummer, best bass player, best keyboards, and best vocalist. Musical genres can be, but are not limited to, Pop, Rock, R&B, Country, Hard-Rock, and Alternative. Audiences will interact with, and vote for, bands via social media platforms. The show is currently being filmed in Nashville, Tennessee at Skyways Studios and there will be 8 weekly one-hour episodes ending with a 90-minute finale on December 6.
Barry Josephson said: “American Supergroup is excited to announce a stellar panel of judges. Aloe, Elle, Jennifer and Jason are four brilliant singer-songwriters that bring tremendous expertise to the table. Audiences will connect with the elite group of gifted musicians who will be mentored by our team of judges and celebrity guests.”
