Submissions have been happening for ‘Paper Dolls’, which follows the meteoric rise and fall of the fictional girl band INDIGO – a manufactured pop group born out of one of the first reality TV shows.
Set in 2000, five hopeful women step into the spotlight only to find that their dream of fame is compromised by what it takes to achieve it. As INDIGO is unleashed into the world to instant success and stardom, the girls’ connection with each other evolves from competition to confidants.
The series, appears to be loosely based on the story of Bardot (pictured)– the all girl band that was launched from Seven’s 1999 program ‘Popstars’, the precursor to ‘Australian Idol’. Belinda Chapple, one of the original members of Bardot, is co-executive producer.
