Songwriters get the spotlight in a new NBC talent contest.
The network said Tuesday that its 11-episode series Songland will give undiscovered songwriters the chance to create a hit.
In each episode, five contestants will work with music producers and a recording artist to perfect their tunes.
One winner per episode will have his or her song released as the artist’s next single, NBC said.
Would-be contestants will be able to apply at an upcoming website, NBC said.
A series debut date wasn’t announced.
