The biggest hits from the ’80s, ’90s, and 2000s will be featured in the new music series, Greatest Hits, as just announced by ABC. The one-hour show will be hosted by Arsenio Hall (The Arsenio Hall Show, Martial Law) and Kelsea Ballerini. Country singer Ballerini is the first solo female Country artist in 15 years to make it to the top of the charts with her first two Country singles, according to ABC. “Love Me Like You Mean It” and “Dibs” each achieved Gold status and “Peter Pan,” her third single off of her first album, is currently getting airplay on Country stations.
Per ABC, each episode of the new music-driven series will focus on a five year time period. “Each week, iconic music artists, as well as today’s music chart-toppers, will take the stage and perform the songs that defined the 1980s, 1990s and 2000s.” Greatest Hits will include solo performances and brand new duets as well as tributes. The series will premiere on June 30, 2016 at 9pm ET/PT.
Ken Ehrlich, James McKinlay and Raj Kapoor are on board as executive producers. Greatest Hits will be directed by Leon Knoles who also directed The Arsenio Hall Show in 2013 and 2014.
