MTV has announced that it’s premiering ‘Wonderland’, its first weekly live music series in almost 20 years. But a lot has changed in two decades, which is why the new series will go beyond just linear TV.
The show, which debuts Thursday, Sept. 15, will be available across ALL MTV platforms.
The 10-episode first season is hosted by music artist Lizzo, “underground culture vulture” Rachael Finley (Steak) and stand-up comedian Myke Wright. Tinashe, Ty Dolla $ign and Broods are set to headline the premiere installment.
Fans will be able to check out exclusive extended sets and follow the artists in real time on Facebook Live and MTV.com during and after their performances.
MTV Snapchat, Twitter and Instagram will also showcase behind-the-scenes rehearsal footage, as well as on-the-ground coverage on show night to create a more immersive experience for viewers.
All episodes are an hour long and take place in the Imperial Arts Studios in Downtown Los Angeles.
This isn’t the new TRL. This is much cooler. Much more immersive. You can watch on TV, then go watch BTS vids on Snapchat, see exclusive sets on Facebook Live and more. The setting will make the show feel like you’re watching a cool underground music festival instead of a studio-broadcasted talk show. We’re excited about this one!
