    Selected from thousands who auditioned across America, UPN's new dramality series features a diverse group of singers and rappers, ranging in age from 19-29, as they transform into multi-talented entertainers while facing weekly tests that determine who can make the cut. While dealing with the ups-and-downs of life on the road, this select group will be challenged in a variety of ways and, with Missy's guidance, be exposed to top music industry insiders, all under the 24-hour-a-day surveillance of THE ROAD TO STARDOM WITH MISSY ELLIOTT cameras that chronicle every move.

    Missy leads the panel of music industry judges, including Grammy Award nominated R&B singer/songwriter/producer/performer Teena Marie; Grammy Award-winning producer Dallas Austin, who has created hits with some of music's top artists, including Madonna, TLC, Pink and most recently, Gwen Stefani; and president of Violator Management Mona Scott, who represents Busta Rhymes, 50 Cent and Tweet, among others. This panel will eliminate one performer each episode until only one is left standing to claim the $100,000 prize. Then, Missy will help launch the winner's career by signing them to her record label and releasing their first single.

    Arnold Shapiro ("Big Brother"), Allison Grodner ("Big Brother"), Mona Scott, Jay Blumenfield and Anthony Marsh are executive producers. Missy Elliott is co-executive producer. Mona Scott and Jessica Horowitz are creators. THE ROAD TO STARDOM WITH MISSY ELLIOTT is a production of Shapiro/Grodner Productions in association with Monami, Inc.
