USA to Premiere Holiday Reality Series Event IT TAKES A CHOIR
USA Network is bringing back family night on Fridays from 8-11PM ET/PT, giving viewers the opportunity to share an evening together full of music and laughter. New holiday season reality series event, IT TAKES A CHOIR, moves to a new night and time on Fridays at 10pm ET/PT, immediately following themed episodes of MODERN FAMILY.
IT TAKES A CHOIR follows the dapper and charismatic British sensation Gareth Malone as he travels across the U.S. to unite an unexpected mix of characters through the spellbinding power of music. A true fish out of water, in both his environment and teaching style, Malone finds himself in the craziest situations with some of the biggest characters. Each episode culminates in a unified and powerful public performance from the choir in front of their family, friends and community.
An award-winning choirmaster and broadcaster, Gareth is best known in the UK for the series "The Choir," a three-part BBC documentary series in 2006. The show saw him take on The Challenge of bringing music into the lives of students who had never sung before and ultimately taking them to compete in the World Choir Games in China. To date this astoundingly successful series has won two BAFTA awards and two RTS awards. Gareth has also been appointed Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE), a prestigious honor awarded by the Queen for services to music.
