Spun Gold’s Penny Lane Entertainment is partnering with English singer-songwriter Gary Barlow to co-produce the music and entertainment show I’m With The Band (w/t) for BBC1.
The 60-minute format will see a supergroup of artists come together for an informal chat and to perform classic songs from past and present.
Chris Howe is director with Mark Sidaway and Lee Connolly executive producing. Owen Courtney commissioned the format for BBC Music..
Barlow also welcomes special guests to the show as Anne-Marie, with DJ and producer Nathan Dawe and rapper MoStack. Craig David drops by to collaborate with the band, talk about their careers and musical heroes, and perform new versions of classic tracks.
Connolly said in a statement: “Artists and musicians love to perform, and I’m With The Band (w/t) creates a platform for them to do just that. Gary continues to show, with his Crooner Sessions, how much fun it is to collaborate with fellow musicians and I’m With The Band (w/t) takes this concept further by creating a bespoke environment where artists can relax and do what they do best.”
