Primary wave Entertainment President Jeff Gaspin also informed that in the board.
Los Angeles, CA – it appears John Legend has been taking notes from his wife Chrissy Teigen from the concert in Lip Sync Battle and realized the music-based programming is the way to go.
Variety is reporting that the 38-year old R&B superstar is working with Netflix and a former executive of NBC, Jeff Gaspin to develop Rhythm And Flow, an impromptu talent competition series that will pit rappers against one another, while it also focuses on the soul and R&B.
The show will be produced by the Legend Get Lifted Film Co. and Gaspin of the Primary Wave Entertainment, where he serves as the president. Netflix is said to be approaching a finish of business for the show in the wake of the Legend and Get Lifted back the first look at Sony Pictures Television. Both companies previously worked alongside one another on WGN America recently canceled a slave serial drama, the Metro.
While it is not clear whether the Legend will be in the camera, what talent will be on the deck, and how many of the episodes take place, the premise is very interesting, in the sense that it is the maintenance of the apparent family relationship of Hip Hop and R&B so strong.
In the recent episode of the DXBreakdown, Murs discusses why the two genres can't seem to shake each other by the time.
