*Mathew Knowles‘ Music World Entertainment and Music World Music announced that the company is partnering with MTV for a new reality series, “Breaking From Above,” which features a hot all-girl group, “From Above” (pictured) — five thrill-seekers from the UK on the ride of their lives.
Ashley, Daisy, Seyi, Chelsey and Monique are all in their early 20s and have had various roles in the entertainment business, as singer/songwriter to featured dancer on the Kanye West tour, to lead vocalist in a UK girl band to dancer on a UK dance reality show.
The five girls will be hopping the Pond to Houston, Texas for a much anticipated date with the Music World Entertainment founder and president — a man who knows a thing or two about turning girl groups into gold.
He’ll put the group through his trademark Star Power™ Boot Camp of hardcore physical, vocal, media and choreography training to emphasize the philosophy that made global superstars of his protégés Destiny’s Child: work, work and more hard work.
But there’s a twist – when the girls get to Houston, they quickly learn that there are two new girls, Jasmine and Brandy, living in the house with them and they are now ALL in competition for a spot in “From Above.”
The pressure mounts over the course of their artist development camp, as the girls are put through their paces by famed choreographers Danielle Polanco and Frank Gaston, as well as musical director Tom McKinney and fitness instructor Rozelle Jones of Camp Gladiator. And as Knowles remains very hands-on, especially when it comes to team-building and trust exercises, the studio beckons as the group start to develop their “sound.”
’Breaking From Above’ premieres in 160 countries the week of November 13th—not aired in the U.S.
