It was reported by Billboard and The Hollywood Reporter earlier this week that NBC and the Boardwalk Entertainment Group will be sketching a new musical television show on the network titled Robin Hood & Marian, as well as a project about how the music industry was ran back in the 1970's titled The 1970's. Maroon 5 front man Adam Levine is said to be scoring the soundtrack for the projects and release it through his label at 222 Productions partnered with RCA Records. It will feature well known pop and rock musicians performing 1970's classics. Songwriters Evan "Kidd" Bogart and Emanuel "Eman" Kiriakou will be collaborating with Levine on the entitled project as well.
Here's the press statement from Billboard.com:
Sony TV project The 1970s will explore the decade through the eyes of music executives and artists. “It was the beginning of the end of independent labels and the driving force transitioning into the corporate takeover of the business,” says Boardwalk co-founder Gary Randall. Levine, who’s in business with NBC through The Voice and was brought onboard by NBC Entertainment chairman Bob Greenblatt, has been hands-on with song choices and casting current acts to play the iconic artists and rerecord the era’s classics.
