Kara DioGuardi Returns to TV With ‘Platinum Hit’ (VIDEO)

By: / May 30, 2011

Kara DioGuardi is back in the judge’s seat — but this time it’s for Bravo’s new series, Platinum Hit.

Hoping to cultivate a new generation of songwriters, Kara is ready for the world to see how hits are really made. She recently told NBC:

“Songs are the backbone of the music industry, and this show is about finding hit songs. And there isn’t an artist out there that can survive in the music industry without hit songs.” 

The show follows 12 singer-songwriters on their quest to become the next big hitmaker, as they battle through a series of songwriting challenges. The winner will walk away with a $100,000 cash prize, publishing deal with Sony, BMI Songwriters The Writing Camp and a recording deal with RCA/Jive! Jewel hosts the series and gives her feedback as a judge alongside Kara.

Watch the trailer and be sure to catch Platinum Hit‘s premiere on Monday, May 30 at 10PM on Bravo.
