MTV, Combs get band back together

Making the Band first aired on ABC in 2000

US music and entertainment channel MTV is remaking hit reality format Making the Band with rapper and record producer Sean Combs, aka P Diddy.

Making the Band, in which budding singers compete and are chosen to form a band, originally ran for 12 seasons in the 2000s. It first aired on US network ABC between 2000 and 2001 before migrating to Viacom-owned MTV from 2002 to 2009.

Combs, who oversaw the original series on MTV and was responsible for deciding who made the band, will return for the reboot, which is set to debut on the music channel in 2020.

“MTV and I are back together again! Making the Band is coming back bigger, bolder and more cutting-edge. MTB on MTV was the pioneer of reality TV. We’re going to bring that supernatural energy back to the format and bring the world it’s next global superstars,” said Combs.

Nina L Diaz, MTV’s president of entertainment, added: “Making the Band was ahead of its time and the ultimate disruptor – fans everywhere have been clamouring for a return and they are in for the biggest, most iconic season yet.”
