JOHN LEGEND (TV-PG)
“Songland,”serves as a destination for music’s biggest stars to find their next hit song. In the series premiere, undiscovered songwriters are put center stage as they pitch their original material to mega-star John Legend and a panel of chart-topping music producers. Viewers get an authentic peek into the creative process behind songwriting as three of music’s most successful and sought-after writer-producers, Ryan Tedder (Adele, Taylor Swift), Ester Dean (Rihanna, Katy Perry) and Shane McAnally (Kacey Musgraves, Sam Hunt), produce the songwriters to creatively adapt their songs to perfectly fit Legend’s style. One song is chosen to be recorded by Legend and released for a global audience the same night.
