CW will launch their own singing competition show later this year featuring Gloria Estefan and John Rich as mentors. The program, titled “The Star Next Door”, will be produced by Queen Latifah and Dave Broome, the creator of The Biggest Loser on NBC. The network has ordered 10 episodes of the series for the summer season.
In The Star Next Door, the mentors, will travel to where the talent is and immerse themselves in the lives and towns of these local performers while preparing them for the chance to represent their home city live on national TV.
More celebrity mentors will be revealed in the coming months.
“The Star Next Door” is set to premiere this summer
