NBC’s ‘The Voice’ competition series celebrates the best undiscovered singers in the United States. But what about the people behind the songs they belt on stage?

‘The Voice’ coach and Maroon 5 frontman, Adam Levine, is joining forces with executive producer, Audrey Morrissey’ and Grammy Award-winning songwriter, Dave Stewart, for a new series called ‘Songland’.

Unlike ‘American Idol’, ‘X Factor’, or ‘The Voice’, ‘Songland’ will be the first reality series that seeks to find the best songwriter in America, regardless of their singing prowess.

‘While artists make money on songs that they record, songwriters have multiple avenues and points at which they can generate hefty revenue from their works. If ultimately ordered to series, Songland will pull back the curtain on the song marketplace and the power brokers within it. The project is expected to feature everyday people with compelling stories who get the opportunity to pitch original compositions to the music industry's biggest producers and artists all hunting for the next global smash,” explains The Hollywood Reporter’s Lacey Rose.

‘Songland’ will be produced by Live Animals in association with Dave Stewart Entertainment and Levine’s 222 Productions.
