*The first round of performers for ABC’s upcoming music miniseries “Greatest Hits” has been revealed ahead of its premiere later this month.
As previously reported, Arsenio Hall and Kelsea Ballerini are co-hosting the six-episode series, where each week artists will take the stage to perform their hits that have defined the ’80s, ’90s and ’00s.
The show will feature performances from Andra Day, Backstreet Boys, Bonnie Raitt, Boyz II Men, Cee Lo Green, Chicago, Coolio, En Vogue, Foreigner, Jason Derulo, John Legend, Little Big Town, LL Cool J, Meghan Trainor, Miguel, Pitbull, REO Speedwagon, Rick Springfield, Wilson Phillips and Wiz Khalifa, among others.
“Greatest Hits” premieres on June 30th and will air each Thursday through August 4th. The show will divide the three-decade timespan into five-year sections, with each episode centered on that half-decade period.
From AEG Ehrlich Ventures, Greatest Hits will be executive produced by Ken Ehrlich, James McKinlay and Raj Kapoor. Leon Knoles will direct, and David Wild will write and produce.
