New Original YouTube Series SING IT! Premieres Today
SING IT! is a new weekly, 10-episode, scripted comedy series from Fine Brothers Entertainment and Mandeville Films that lovingly satirizes the reality singing competitions that have become a centerpiece of pop culture. The series, which follows the behind the scenes drama of the fictional reality show "Sing It!," debuts today, May 25, 2016 exclusively on Youtube Red, the new ad-free entertainment and music subscription service.The story begins when Sing It's long-running executive producer is fired, and Stacey Needles' (Mircea Monroe) plan to take charge is thwarted with the arrival of newcomer indie producer, Drew (Mark Sullivan). His inexperience and blind passion threaten to offset the balance of the show's quirky contestants, duplicitous executives, and rollicking crew. This fun workplace comedy not only offers a tongue-in-cheek, behind the scenes look into a music reality competition show, but includes upbeat and incredible performances from the contestants with one to be eliminated at the end of each episode until the final two are left. In a unique twist, SING IT!'s creators have added an unprecedented layer of interactivity to a scripted series. Before the final episode, viewers will be able to vote and decide which of the two finalists will ultimately win it all in this show within the show. Missi Pyle (Gone Girl), Debby Ryan (Jessie) and real life music couple Ace Young and Diana DeGarmo (American Idol) round out the all-star cast. Guest stars include Sasha Pieterse (Pretty Little Liars), Youtube stars Sam Tsui, TODRICK Hall and Tim DeLaGhetto and many more.
