Looks like Netflix is putting their hand in the pot of the reality music competition game!
The streaming giant is developing Rhythm & Flow, a hip-hop competiton show from John Legend.
Legend is working on it with former NBC executive Jeff Gaspin and Primary Wave Entertainment.
Variety, who broke the news, says “the unscripted series is a classic shiny-floor music competition that focuses on a particular genre: hip-hop music.”
It is unclear if Legend would just be behind the scenes or on camera, or if any other talent that will star in the show.
While Netflix has done a ton of unscripted content, this would be their first foray into a competition-style program.
This would be one of the first reality music competitions with a targeted focus, their being on hip-hop, soul and R&B.
This announcement also comes at ABC has revived American Idol and FOX is beginning their own competition, The Four. NBC has also ordered The Stream, which could replace one out of two of The Voice seasons each year.
