MTV is digging into the vaults for its latest series.
MTV International announced today (April 29) plans to bow My Life on MTV, a new music series celebrating some of the world’s biggest stars and their most unforgettable MTV movements, May 21 internationally and May 22 in the U.S.)
The 10-episode series will devote every 30-minute program to two global superstars — featuring archival footage from the likes of Sean “Diddy” Combs and Snoop Dogg; Miley Cyrus and Alicia Keys; One Direction and Backstreet Boys; Linkin Park and Green Day; Katy Perry and Nicki Minaj; The Jonas Brothers and Usher; Justin Timberlake and Jennifer Lopez; Coldplay and U2; *NSYNC and Britney Spears, and a season finale episode dedicated to Lady Gaga.
Each episode will chronicle pairs of artists from past to present, all through the lens of MTV cameras: from their debut on MTV News to performances on TRL, the VMAs and EMAs to appearances on Punk’d, Cribs, The Ride, Diary, YO! MTV Raps and numerous specials.
Produced for the network by Glass Entertainment Group with executive producers Nancy Glass and Lauren Flowers and MTV executive producers Bruce Gillmer and Jennifer Demme, My Life on MTV captures the lightning that occurred during the heyday of the music video era.
Today, MTV is available in more than 180 countries, reaching 450 million households in nearly 25 different languages across every platform – and the time for nostalgia is ripe, says Gillmer, president of music, music talent, programming & events, ViacomCBS, parent company of MTV.
“We have a rich history with these groundbreaking artists, and we’re thrilled to be bringing fans a fresh take on their most unforgettable moments that only happened here on MTV,” said Gillmer in a statement.
