ABC's 'Boy Band' Introduces New Judge Timbaland

Timbaland has joined ABC’s upcoming singing-competition series “Boy Band.” 

The veteran producer will serve alongside Spice Girl Emma Bunton and Backstreet Boy Nick Carter as one of three judges — referred to on the series as “architects.”

He also joins Rita Ora, who is set to host the show.“Boy Band” will feature thousands of performers competing for one of 18 spots in three bands. 

Over the course of the season, the architects will shuffle members from band to band. After elimination rounds driven by fan voting, five winning performers will be selected to form the final band, which will perform its debut single on the season finale and receive a recording contract at Hollywood Records.

The competition is slated to premiere June 22.
