Netflix has teamed up with super producer Pharrell Williams to create an unscripted gospel music series, Voices of Fire. The series will take place in Pharrell’s hometown of Hampton Roads and will debut later this year.
“Voices of Fire follows Pharrell Williams’ hometown community as it builds one of the world’s most inspiring gospel choirs. Pharrell’s uncle and a well-respected musical genius in the area, Bishop Ezekiel Williams and his core team of influential gospel leaders will venture out into Hampton Roads to find undiscovered talent,” Netflix writes.
“With the belief that diverse backstories can give their collective voice a greater meaning, the Bishop and his team will be searching for people of all ages, ethnicities and backgrounds,” the streaming platform adds.
Williams will co-executive produce alongside Mimi Valdés, Arthur Smith, Frank Sinton and Bianca Barnes-Williams.
