Apple has placed an order for 'My Kind of Country', a country music competition show from Reese Witherspoon's Hello Sunshine, Jason Owen, and Izzie Pick Ibarra. Adam Blackstone will serve as musical director of the series, which will be executive produced by Done + Dusted.

“My Kind of Country” will revolutionize the music competition genre with a fresh, new documentary sensibility. The hybrid series will break down cultural and musical barriers in the country music space, inviting innovative musicians to unleash their authentic voices and take center stage.

Reese Witherspoon, Hello Sunshine head of Film & Television Lauren Neustadter, and SVP of Unscripted Programming Cynthia Stockhammer will executive produce the series on behalf of the media company. Jason Owen, president and CEO of Sandbox Entertainment and mega-manager to country music heavyweights Kacey Musgraves, Kelsea Ballerini, Little Big Town, Faith Hill, and Dan + Shay among others, will also serve as executive producer alongside Izzie Pick Ibarra, the illustrious showrunner behind the Emmy-nominated competition series “The Masked Singer” and “Dancing With the Stars,” as well as Done + Dusted’s Katy Mullan and Melanie Fletcher (“The Disney Family Singalong,” John Legend’s “A Legendary Christmas with John and Chrissy,” “The Little Mermaid Live!,” “Dear Class of 2020,” London Olympic Opening and Closing Ceremonies). Adam Blackstone (musical director to Justin Timberlake, Alicia Keys, Faith Hill, Rihanna, Tim McGraw, “The Masked Singer,” “The Four,” “Girls Trip,” BET Awards 2020) will serve as musical director.
