Grammy winner and coach of The Voice Christina Aguilera is teaming up with Spike TV for a new game show titled Tracks. Described as an innovative, music-based series, Tracks will be executive produced by Christina Aguilera, MX Productions founder Matthew Rutler (MasterClass), Michael Agbabian, and Dwight D. Smith (Hollywood Game Night). The series was developed by Neal Tabachnick and Michael Aubry with Mission Control Media. Spike TV is aiming to introduce the half-hour game show with a special airing later this year.
“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.”
Details on Tracks: 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.
