Spike Press Release – Spike Teams Up with Lionsgate Television, Mission Control Media and MX Productions on “Tracks”

March 15th, 2016 by SPIKE Press

 

 SPIKE TEAMS UP WITH LIONSGATE TELEVISION, MISSION CONTROL MEDIA AND MX PRODUCTIONS ON “TRACKS” 

Innovative New Game Show Executive Produced By Superstar Entertainer

And Musical Icon, Christina Aguilera 

Half-Hour Special To Debut Later This Year

 

New York, NY, March 15, 2016 – Spike TV is partnering with entertainment superstar and singing icon Christina Aguilera (“The Voice”) to develop a new, music-based game show, “Tracks.” Produced by Mission Control Media and MX Productions in association with Lionsgate, “Tracks” will debut as a half-hour special on Spike TV later this year.

“Tracks” is an innovative musical game show where a team of two attempts to name a song title just by listening to its individual tracks (e.g. guitar, bass, vocal, etc.).  The series will also feature surprise celebrity musical guests performing tracks – which could be their own – or others.

“Having finely tuned my ear for music over the years, I thought it would be fun to test other folks and see if they can identify a track – with a twist – since contestants will have to focus on a single component of a song,” said Executive Producer Aguilera. “I’m excited to have ‘Tracks’ debuting on Spike TV, and proud to have this as the first project springing from our first-look deal with Lionsgate.”

Aguilera serves as executive producer along with MX Productions founder Matthew Rutler (“Chef Without Boarders,” “MasterClass”), Michael Agbabian and Dwight D. Smith (“Hollywood Game Night,” “Face Off”).   Neal Tabachnick and Michael Aubry are co-executive producers, and developed the series with Mission Control Media.

More information on the host and production details to be announced shortly.

One of the most accomplished performers of the last decade, Christina Aguilera has sold more than 30 million albums worldwide, achieved four No. 1 singles on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and won six Grammy awards.  She has also received her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and has had the prestigious honor of being named the only artist under the age of 30 included in Rolling Stone Magazine’s list of the 100 greatest singers of all time. In 2011, she entered the world of TV as a coach on NBC’s Emmy Award winning show “The Voice.”  Christina continues to use her voice for good. She has served as global spokesperson for Yum! Brands’ World Hunger Relief effort since 2009 where her participation has helped raised $115 million for WFP and others, providing 460 million meals and saving millions of lives.

Sharon Levy is Spike’s Executive Vice President, Original Series, Chachi Senior is Senior Vice President of Original Programming for Spike and will oversee “Tracks” and Tori Socha serves as the network’s Executive in Charge of Production. Jennifer O’Connell, Executive Vice President, Alternative Programming, Lionsgate Television and Brian Tannenbaum, Vice President, Lionsgate Television will oversee on behalf of the studio.

“We are excited to be in business with Spike on their first scripted production pilot and working with the very talented Christian Torpe to further explore Stephen King’s classic novella and bring this riveting series to television audiences,” said Bob Weinstein, Co-Chariman The Weinstein Company.

Megan Spanjian, VP of Scripted TV, was instrumental in finding and bringing Torpe to the table and will oversee the project for Dimension TV along with Matthew Signer, EVP of Production and Creative Affairs, and Keith Levine, SVP of Production and Development.  Torpe is repped by ICM.

Levy, Ted Gold, Senior Vice President, Scripted Original Series, and Lauren Ruggiero, Senior Director, Scripted Programming will oversee the project.

Spike TV debuted its first scripted event series in eight years, “Tut,” last July to strong ratings and has recently ordered to series, “Red Mars” based on Kim Stanley Robinson’s award-winning “Mars Trilogy.”

Dimension TV debuted its first scripted series SCREAM, which was an adaptation of the hit horror film franchise, with MTV.  With a successful first season, SCREAM TV was picked up for Season 2 and is in production.
