DALLAS, TX (July 10, 2009) - A new reality TV show is giving America a peek at the oft-overlooked world of music producers while grooming tomorrow's hit-makers. Who Got Next? School of Beats combines the head-to-head competition of reality hit "The Apprentice" with the drama of MTV's "The Real World." The show will be hosted by platinum rapper Lil' Flip.
Local hopefuls may register online at www.WhoGotNextTV.com or attend live auditions Saturday, July 11 at Las Colinas Studios in Irving, Texas. Fifteen contestants from various music backgrounds will be selected to work, live and compete in a Dallas penthouse suite while being "schooled" in different areas. The School of Beats contest will cover rock, rap, country and a number of music genres while also giving finalists crash courses in leadership, business and management. Through a series of unexpected challenges, each undiscovered track master will show off their beats among a top-notch crew of celebrity artists, DJs, corporate execs and pro athletes.
As the beat battles heat up, so do the stakes as producers are eliminated each episode. In addition to a generous cash prize, the winner gets to record and produce an original song with a hip-hop superstar. School of Beats is the fast track from the head of the class to the top of the charts! Anticipated guest judges include NBA All-Star Chris Bosh, R&B crooner David Chance, K104.5 radio personality Skip Cheatham and a host of others.
Who Got Next? School of Beats was created by Kason "KC Mack" Jones with executive producer JT Barnet of tabloid TV series Cheaters. The show is produced by LMAO Entertainment. Sign-up and get more information at www.WhoGotNextTV.com.
