Christina Aguilera is exec producing a music-based game show for Spike TV.
Produced by Mission Control Media and MX Productions in association with Lionsgate, Tracks will challenge teams of two contestants to guess the name of a song by listening to isolated guitar, bass and vocal tracks.
The series will also feature surprise celebrity musical guests performing the tracks in question. Further details of the production will be announced soon.
Co-executive producers Neal Tabachnick and Michael Aubry developed the series with Mission Control Media.
The series falls under Aguilera and Rutler’s first-look deal with Lionsgate to develop and produce scripted and unscripted projects.
“Having finely tuned my ear for music over the years, I thought it would be fun to test other folks and see if they can identify a track – with a twist – since contestants will have to focus on a single component of a song,” Aguilera said in a statement. “I’m excited to have Tracks debuting on Spike TV, and proud to have this as the first project springing from our first-look deal with Lionsgate.”
