Courtesy MTVRemember the time when MTV actually played music videos? Well, the music video network is headed back to its roots this fall by adding new music programming.
The network announced its fall line-up with a trio of shows that will all focus on music. The network plans to bring back MTV Unplugged, which originally debuted as an acoustic performance show in 1989. In addition to bringing back a fan favorite, the music network is planning to air a hip-hop competition show.
The series, from executive producer Mark Burnett, the man behind The Voice, Survivor and Celebrity Apprentice, will be build around “getting tomorrow’s top talent in front of the industry’s top dogs — and then getting them signed and into the recording studio,” according to MTV.com.
To round-out the new line-up, network will add an original weekly music show called Wonderland that will showcase the “best” in new music through live performances. The new series is developed in partnership with Comedy Central and will be hosted by musicians and comedians.
MTV’s full programming schedule can be found on the network’s website.
