This is interesting. Does anybody know who is behind it? A major network? Who commissioned it? I like it though, kind of 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' meets 'Fame'.

It seems like Jake Wilson is making it with the help of a few friends in the industry - most likely to make a name for himself. He's got a few small credits - but the composers of the songs have all written full-length works to varying degrees of success. So they all seem to be pooling their talents to get noticed. And it's pretty impressive for the budget - the songs and choreography are wonderful.
