Usher to Executively Produce new series “Storyville” based on New Orleans Jazz

Usher has been signed by Starlings Television to help produce their new show about the birth of the jazz scene in New Orleans where he notes “Storyville is an epic tale sparked by the origin of the sound that inspired my career – a story that touches the nerve of social and cultural relevance today.” Starlings Television President, Chris Phillip, also says that “Usher’s massive global appeal, musical and acting genius will propel this unique and compelling original series into a must-see viewing experience worldwide” and “his invaluable creative and musical contributions to Storyville fulfill our vision of contrasting the gritty, sometimes brutal sides of New Orleans life with it giving birth to a beautiful, diverse and defining new artform.”

Storyville is still in early development and has yet to be announced.
