ABC acquires military singing competition show

Posted on

You’ve think you’ve seen every type of singing competition series? Not yet you haven’t! ABC has acquired a military singing reality show where current and former soldiers will show off their performance skills.

“What’s the title?” you ask. We tried to guess. Armed Forces Idol? American Soldiers’ Got Talent? The XO Factor?

The project includes eight episodes and is from 5 Streams Global Entertainment. Though the U.S. military has agreed to allow military personnel to participate in the show, the government is not involved in the series. There’s no premiere date yet.
