Netflix Announces New Music Competition Series

Netflix is diving into the next music star genre with a new original series. Rhythm + Flow. The new show will be familiar to fans of other music-based shows like American Idol or the Voice. Three hip hop stars (Cardi B, Chance the Rapper and T.I.) will judge numerous hopefuls as they battle for attention and a chance to go forward in the music industry.

The three-week, 10-episode series will arrive on the streaming service on October 9th, when Rhythm + Flow‘s first four episodes (four-city auditions in Los Angeles, New York, Chicago and Atlanta) premiere on Netflix.

The following week’s three episodes, on October 16th, will focus on syphers, rap battles and music videos, with the October 23rd’s final three episodes covering samples, collaborations and the finale to declare a winner.

RollingStone was the first to report on this.
