Following the success (and recent sequel greenlight) of Universal's "Pitch Perfect," it looks like everyone wants to jump on the a cappella bandwagon.
According to Deadline, "American Idol" production company 19 Entertainment -- along with parent company CORE Media -- have signed a deal with a cappella organization Varsity Vocals, the creative minds behind the International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella, "to develop a show built around the competition and the college students who participate in it." The deal will reportedly allow CORE to record the ICCA contest for television.
TVLine has more details on the potential series from Varsity Vocals executive director Amanda Newman. The show -- which is seemingly not being developed for any specific network at this stage -- will reportedly follow the ICCA "through the whole tournament series ... It’d show the groups going through all the rounds of the tournament leading up to the finals, and also show a bit of the students’ backgrounds,” in much the same vein as "Pitch Perfect," Newman told TVLine.
In response to "Pitch Perfect's" success, NBC has also renewed its a capella singing competition, "The Sing Off" for a fourth season, despite having cancelled it due to low ratings in 2012.
