Plot Synopsis

Executive produced by Eurythmics co-founder Dave Stewart and Maroon 5 lead singer Adam Levine, SONGLAND is a one-hour competition series takes an inside look at the creative process and provides one winner per episode the opportunity to have their song recorded for a global audience by the chart-topping guest recording artists featured in their show. In each episode, undiscovered songwriters are put center stage as they pitch their original material to an icon in the music industry. Then, the three panelists produce the songwriters to creatively adapt their songs to perfectly fit the style of that show's guest. Finally, one song is chosen to be recorded by the guest and released for a global audience the same night. The panel of producer-songwriters includes Ryan Tedder (lead singer of OneRepublic and Grammy Award-winning producer of Adele, Beyonce and Taylor Swift), Ester Dean (Grammy-nominated songwriter and producer of Rihanna, Katy Perry and Nicki Minaj) and Shane McAnally (Grammy-winning songwriter and producer of Kacey Musgraves, Kelly Clarkson and Sam Hunt with 38 #1 country records).
