Jewel and Kara DioGuardi are the first celebrities on board for a new songwriter competition series on Bravo. Jewel will host and occasionally join DioGuardi as part of the judging panel. Going Platinum is expected to premiere in 2011.
Judging will be based more on the contestants’ songwriting ability than their singing and performance prowess.
Twelve musicians will live together in the same house and compete in songwriting challenges. The themed episodes will have the songwriters working in various genres and performing for the judges.
The winner will earn a $100,000 cash prize, a publishing deal with Sony, and a recording deal with RCA/Jive Records.
