John Legend and former NBC exec Jeff Gaspin have teamed up to bring Netflix’s first music competition series, “Rhythm&Flow.” Read more on TheOriginalChatman.Com!

Although John Legend is currently on tour promoting his latest album Darkness and Light, he will use his creative prowess to develop a music-based program for Netflix. According to Varietythe show—titled Rhythm & Flow—will be the first of its kind for the giant streaming service. Rhythm & Flow‘s format of an unscripted talent competition pits rappers against each other while also shifting focus on soul and R&B music.

John Legend is slated to team up with former NBC network executive Jeff Gaspin. Both Legend’s Get Lifted Film company and Gaspin’s Primary Wave Entertainment will produce the competition series. Both men previously collaborated on the WGN America cancelled slavery drama, Underground.

Legend’s team-up with Gaspin is a smart move. Gaspin is responsible for having developed  VH1’s “Behind the Music”, NBC’s “The Apprentice”, “The Biggest Loser”, and “The Voice” in addition to and Bravo’s “Project Runway.”

No official word yet if John Legend will play another role on the show besides producer.
