Also exec producing are country music manager and Sandbox Entertainment CEO Jason Owen, and Izzie Pick Ibarra, showrunner of The Masked Singer and Dancing with the Stars in the US.

Melanie Fletcher, chief operating officer of prodco Done + Dusted, will also exec produce with executive producer and partner Katy Mullan.

Adam Blackstone, who is musical director for artists including Justin Timberlake, Alicia Keyes and Rihanna, will serve as musical director of the series.
