NBC Hops on the Musical Teens Bandwagon with New Marching Band Comedy


Taking a cue from Glee and this weekend’s college a cappella comedy Pitch Perfect, NBC is developing a show about rhythmic youngsters all of its own. According to Deadline, the Peacock Network has hired Bucky Larson director/Simpsons producer Tom Brady to write a new series called The Swamp, which follows “a scramble-style college marching band” in New Orleans. If NBC picks up the show, it’ll be worth watching just to find out what a scramble-style marching band is and how that is different from a normal marching band.
