ABC is serious about singing. The network has acquired a new musical reality show from 5 Streams Global Entertainment, and unlike most singing competitions, this one has rather specific requirements for contestants.
A network rep confirms to The Hollywood Reporter that it intends to air an eight-episode season of Troupe Stars, a reality show where all performers will be current current or former soldiers.
First reported by EW, the series has gotten U.S. military approval for active personal to participate in the series — though the government is not in any way involved.
With Fox doubling down with American Idol and X Factor and NBC seeing success in The Voice, ABC made its own attempt at a singing series with summer’s Duets. The series struggled in ratings, though, and while the network has never commented on its status, star Kelly Clarkson says it’s done.
No premiere date is set for Troupe Stars.
