CMT Teams With American Idol Producers for Can You Duet?

CMT has ordered 11 one-hour episodes of Can You Duet?, a music competition show developed by FremantleMedia North America, the producers of American Idol and America’s Got Talent. Scheduled to premiere in the spring of 2008, the weekly series is designed to find the best country music duet in America. Auditions will take place through open casting calls, showcases and videotaped submissions. The judges, to be announced later, will critique each performance and decide who will advance, be sent home and ultimately win the competition. The judges will also serve as mentors to guide, groom and develop the duet singers.
