Nickelodeon Slated to Begin Filming on 'Simon Fuller/Ryan Tedder-Produced Untitled Project' in December 2019

Musician Ryan Tedder has revealed in an awesome interview with iHeart Radio's Valentine In The Morning that Nickelodeon is slated to begin filming their upcoming brand-new scripted music series this winter!


Simon Fuller/Ryan Tedder-Produced Untitled Project is a scripted music series set in a boarding performing arts high school, with original music in every episode.

The series is being produced by Simon Fuller, a legendary, multi-hyphenate creator, producer and manager behind iconic franchises such as the global Idol phenomenon and Spice Girls, and Grammy Award-winning Ryan Tedder, the frontman of OneRepublic and writer behind countless hit songs from artists ranging from Beyoncé and Adele, to Camila Cabello, Ed Sheeran and Kelly Clarkson, among others.

Nickelodeon will conduct a nationwide search to cast the show, which was announced during Nickelodeon Upfront 2019 earlier this year.

Talking to Valentine In The Morning, Tedder revealed that the pilot episode for the Simon Fuller/Ryan Tedder-Produced Untitled Project has already been filmed, and the goal is to start shooting the series in December.

Tedder also revealed in the interview that the show will be "funny for both parents and the kids", which fits in Nickelodeon's mandate to produce programming for the whole family, and describes the show as the element of the show Glee, but with all original songs.

Nick’s insights reveal that family time is the most important passion point for kids and parents today, with their top priority being to spend time together and look for opportunities through shared experiences. Today’s families state that watching TV together is their favorite activity, corresponding to the current 10-year high in co-viewing, where 44% of kids’ viewing is with an adult. To capture co-viewing opportunities, Nick is producing shows with built-in appeal to every family member, including: America’s Most Musical Family (musical competition series), The Crystal Maze (game show), Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader, The Substitute (hidden camera prank show), Are You Afraid of the Dark? (revival miniseries) and All That (revival).
