Music dynamo L.A. Reid and Charles Goldstuck’s Hitco Entertainment has teamed with North Hollywood-based Pilgrim Media Group to develop and produce music-focused projects for distribution across all platforms.
The companies currently have two projects in development, including an untitled documentary that looks at the ascent of the hip-hop and R&B music in Atlanta. Reid (pictured, left), alongside major artists who came from Atlanta’s music space, will offer their perspective on the history and evolution of the city’s influence on the genres.
Elsewhere, Craig Piligian’s (right) Pilgrim and Hitco are teaming up for the tentatively titled Take the Lead, a music competition format that aims to build the next big music act.
Reid and Goldstuck founded Hitco earlier this year, with the goal of developing and promoting artists. The burgeoning company has since signed 15 artists to its roster, including Big Boi of Outkast; and Dinah Jane of Fifth Harmony, among others.
In addition to his accolades as an executive, musician, songwriter and record producer, Reid was also a judge for two seasons on Fox’s talent competition format The X Factor.
This past August, Pilgrim Media inked a production and development deal with veteran game show producers Michael Canter and Jeff Krask. The first two series stemming from the agreement have already been picked up by an undisclosed broadcast network.
