Meredith and Cozi TV, the new entertainment multicast network developed by the NBC Owned Television Stations, are partnering on an original series called Next Great Family Band. The 30-minute show, produced by Meredith Video Studios, premieres on Cozi Feb. 17.
Next Great Family Band features 15 family acts that hope "to follow in the footsteps of iconic family bands like The Jackson 5, The Jonas Brothers, Hanson and The Osmonds," said Meredith in a statement.
"It is the family dynamic that makes Next Great Family Band very unique," said Seth Feldman, creator and producer and vice president of branded entertainment for Meredith Video Studios. "In addition to seeing these bands rock out on stage, fans will get to know band members during family meals, homework sessions and carpool time."
Cozi TV premiered last month, airing vintage TV shows and films with "a warm and welcoming vibe," according to the digi-net. It is available in nearly 38 million homes. Station partners include both the NBC owned stations and some outside the group. Its first original, the reality show Being Mandela, premiered Feb. 10.
"We are excited to add Next Great Family Band to the Cozi TV lineup," said Meredith McGinn, VP of multi-station local programming for NBC Owned Television Stations, who called it "the perfect show for the entire family to sit down and watch together."
This COZI Network has to be one of the strangest networks I have ever seen. It seems to be airing so many public domain movies several times a day and some 70s and 80s shows here and there, that this station really has no clue as to what it truly wants to be. They still have programming from that horrible Nonstop channel that aired not too long ago. They need to make some changes.
