Adam Levine, Audrey Morrisey (The Voice executive producer), and songwriter Dave Stewart (Eurythmics), are working on a pilot for a songwriting competition show. The show is presently entitled Songland, and it will showcase songwriters looking to break into the music industry. The writers will have the opportunity to pitch their original works to artists and music producers who are looking for the next big hit song. As a songwriter, Levine has written a great deal of Maroon 5’s songs including “Animals,” “Hands All Over,” “She Will Be Loved,” “Wake Up Call,” “Sugar,” and “Daylight.”
