Netflix is teaming up with Pharrell Williams on a new unscripted project.

The streamer has ordered docu-series, Voices of Fire, that will explore the singer’s hometown community of Hampton Roads, Virginia as it builds one of the world’s most inspiring gospel choirs. The project is set to premiere on Netflix later in 2020.

In Voices of Fire, Bishop Ezekiel Williams — Pharrell’s uncle and a well-respected musician in the area — and his core team of influential gospel leaders will venture out into Hampton Roads to find undiscovered talent. With the belief that diverse backstories can give their collective voice a greater meaning, the Bishop and his team will search for people of all ages, ethnicities and backgrounds.
