Viewers fell in love with the Detroit Youth Choir when it finished second on NBC’s reality competition “America’s Got Talent.”
Now two TV series are being developed by a Hollywood production company about the DYC and its leader, Anthony White.
Several entertainment news sites are reporting that Blumhouse TV is developing a scripted series and an unscripted one.
The scripted version is being executive produced by Anthony Sparks, whose credits include OWN’s “Queen Sugar.”
Filming also reportedly is underway for a docuseries on the choir’s current season.
“For years, I have wanted to create a series that highlights the joys and struggles of what it is to be Black, creative, and dream big in a world that often wants you to remain small or invisible. The fact that I get to do it and fuse my story with the incredibly inspirational story of Anthony White and the Detroit Youth Choir is literally a dream come true,” said Sparks in a statement shared by Variety and other online film and TV news hubs.
In 2019, the Detroit Youth Choir sang its heart out and finished in second place on “America’s Got Talent.”
