Popstars

Broadcast Run: 
2001 to 2004

Television

The "docusoap" chronicled the creation of Canadian music acts, starting with open call auditions in major cities across Canada right through the selection process. A group of judges from the music and entertainment industry made cuts based on performances as the hopefuls went through a rigorous "boot camp" to learn dance steps and practice singing. The first season sought to find an all-girl band and successfully launched the group Sugar Jones. The second season - Popstars II: Boy Meets Girl - went after a mixed band of males and females, eventually launching Velvet Empire. In its third season, Popstars  looked for a solo act.
