This article is about the Reality series. For the compilation album from this show, see Podnebesnaya No. 1.
Podnebesnaya (Cyrillic: Поднебесная; Tr. from Russian: Celestial) was a musical production company organized by producer Ivan Shapovalov. The project for Podnebensaya, with the same title, began in 2003 in Moscow, Russia. The main purpose of the production was to produce t.A.T.u.'s second studio album, however after a falling-out with Ivan, such production was ended. Shapovalov continued to work with other Russian artists including 7B, Helya, Ledokol, FlyDream and n.A.T.o.. A CD was released of this project in 2004, after t.A.T.u. split from Shapovalov. The CD was titled Podnebesnaya No. 1, and only featured one song by t.A.T.u. ("Belochka"), although the release capatalized on the fact that it was made during the reality show.
t.A.T.u. v Podnebesnoy (Cyrillic: t.A.T.u. в Поднебесной, Translated: t.A.T.u. in Underheaven) was a reality documentary show filmed in Russia, that chronicled t.A.T.u. as they were in the process of recording a second album with producer Ivan Shapovalov with his larger project Podnebesnaya. However, the girls rarely showed up for the recording, and most of the show was of Ivan working with his other projects.
A contest was held by STS for fans to send in their own lyrics and demos for the girls to possibly use, but none of them were actually used. They can be found at the STS Fansite.
The title of the show is also known as Podnebesnoy, t.A.T.u. Podnebensnoy, and t.A.T.u. V Podnebensnoy. According to the group's official website, Podnebesnaya is translated to "Underheaven", although it is roughly translated to "Celestial".
