Since creating the Pussycat Dolls as a cabaret show in Hollywood, Robin Antin has transformed the act into one of the most successful female pop groups in the world, selling seven million albums and topping the charts with five smash singles. Antin is using her expertise and eye for talent once again as she launches the brand new girl group, Girlicious. Looking for the ultimate performance package, Antin and Geffen Records Chairman Ron Fair launched a nationwide search for the most talented girls in America. Fifteen finalists were chosen to compete for a spot in the new group and international stardom. Thousands of girls lined up with the dream of landing one of three coveted spots in the new band, Girlicious.

Musician Mark McGrath returns as host. Each week, the girls dance and practice choreography with Antin and Pussycat Dolls co-choreographer Mikey Minden, while perfecting their vocal techniques with celebrity vocal coach Kenn Hicks. Hicks superstar clientele includes Jennifer Lopez, Mary J. Blige and the Spice Girls. Having experienced this grueling process, members of the Pussycat Dolls, along with other surprise guests, will appear in episodes to inspire the young hopefuls as they strive to impress the judges, which include Geffen Records Chairman Ron Fair, Antin and Grammy-nominated recording artist Lil’ Kim.

At the end of the ten-episode series, dreams become reality when the brand new group Girlicious is formed and immediately record an album, film a music video, go on tour and earn a record contract with Geffen Records, home of Nelly Furtado, Mary J. Blige, Keisha Cole and, of course, the Pussycat Dolls.
