If you live and breathe for singing competitions, fantastic news (everyone else, feel free to sigh along with us): The CW is plotting another one.
On the heels of "The X Factor," "The Voice," "The Sing-Off," and the more O.G. "American Idol" comes "The Star Next Door," courtesy of Queen Latifah.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Latifah's on board to produce the series for The CW, which will feature Gloria Estefan and country singer/songwriter John Rich as "superstar mentors."
The premise sees "The Star Next Door" conducting "a nationwide search for undiscovered artists on the verge of stardom," with Estefan and Rich traveling "to where the talent is" and coaching the contestants locally so that they can then "represent their home city live on stage in front of America."
"The Star Next Door" is set to air this summer on the network, along with "Breaking Pointe," a reality series about the world of ballet, and "The Catalina," which follows the employees and guests of a Miami hotel.
