Christina Aguilera (The Voice) is executive producing music-based game show Tracks for Spike TV. The project, produced by Mission Control Media and MX Productions in association with Lionsgate, is slated to premiere later this year as a half-hour special on the network.
In Tracks, a team of two attempts to name a song title just by listening to its individual tracks (e.g. guitar, bass, vocal, etc.). The series will also feature surprise celebrity musical guests performing tracks – which could be their own – or others.
“Having finely tuned my ear for music over the years, I thought it would be fun to test other folks and see if they can identify a track – with a twist – since contestants will have to focus on a single component of a song,” said Aguilera. “I’m excited to have Tracks debuting on Spike TV, and proud to have this as the first project springing from our first-look deal with Lionsgate.”
Aguilera serves as EP along with MX Productions founder Matthew Rutler (Chef Without Boarders, MasterClass), Michael Agbabian and Dwight D. Smith (Hollywood Game Night, Face Off). Neal Tabachnick and Michael Aubry are co-executive producers, and developed the series with Mission Control Media.
Aguilera has sold more than 30 million albums worldwide, achieved four No. 1 singles on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and won six Grammy awards. She has served as a coach on NBC’s Emmy-winning The Voice since 2011.
