Songland is an upcoming songwriting competition series on NBC set to premiere on May 28, 2019. It will air on Tuesdays at 10 p.m. ET/PT following America's Got Talent until July 2nd. After a brief hiatus, the series will resume on Wednesday, August 14 at 9 p.m. ET/PT, airing weekly until September 11. The show, produced in cooperation with the Universal Television Alternative Studio, Live Animals Productions, Dave Stewart Entertainment and 222 Productions, sets out to give undiscovered songwriters a chance to create a hit. Contestants are selected to work with producers and a well-known recording artist to release a song.
Each week, producers Ryan Tedder, Ester Dean and Shane McAnally will team up with songwriters to create the next big hit to be recorded by a guest performing artist. Songland is executive produced by Emmy Award-winning producer Audrey Morrissey (The Voice), director Ivan Dudynsky, Eurythmics co-founder Dave Stewart, Chad Hines, and multi-Grammy-winning recording artist and Maroon 5 lead singer Adam Levine. Josh Gummersall will serve as producer along with Ryan Tedder. The concept was devised by Stewart, Morrissey and Dudynsky.
