Amazon Prime Video India announced today that that music composer Amit Trivedi, singer Sunidhi Chauhan, and DJ Nucleya will come together to judge a new music reality show titled The Remix for the video-on-demand streaming service.
The show will have 10 episodes where DJs and singers will pair up to create remixes of songs and compete for a big prize. It will run on an already established format that has been sold in 15 countries across Asia, Africa, and Europe.
In each episode, the DJ or the singer will pair up and reinterpret a popular song in a new style or format, which will change on the basis of challenges put up at each stage. At the end of every performance, celebrity judges will decide who will be eliminated from the show.
Vijay Subramaniam, Director, Content, Amazon Prime Video India, in a statement said, "We know Indians enjoy reality TV, so we are creating new originals with the best new concepts and local Indian talent. We're excited to add more variety to our service, and continue to reinvent the way Indian customers watch TV."
On 23 August, Amazon Prime Video announced its first step towards the creation of multiple Unscripted Originals in the format of reality shows for India. The Remix is one of the three new reality shows out of the lot. The other reality shows are Jestination Unknown, a six-episode traveling comedy show that follows Vir and a group of his comic friends, and Comic Kaun, a tentative title which will be a 10-episode nationwide hunt to find India's next big comedian. A panel of top comedian judges will decide over a pool of emerging comedians in India who will compete for the prize. Each episode will focus on a specific comedy genre and the judges will serve as mentors in their genre of expertise.
