Platinum Hit is an American reality television show that aired on Bravo in 2011. The show was created by Evan Bogart and produced by Jewel, along with her manager, Rick Yorn. The show brings together aspiring songwriters to compete for a chance to become the next big songwriter in the music industry.

The show features 12 contestants who are divided into two teams and are given various songwriting challenges each week. The contestants are judged by a panel of music industry experts, including Jewel, Kara DioGuardi, and Keith Naftaly. They are joined each week by a celebrity guest judge, who offers their expertise to help the contestants improve their songwriting skills.

Throughout the competition, the contestants are given a variety of challenges ranging from writing a song in one hour, to writing a song for a specific artist, to creating a music video to go along with their original song. Each week, the judges review the contestants' work, provide feedback and ultimately choose a winner who has proven to be the strongest songwriter.

The show is not just about making catchy tunes; it's about the process of songwriting and the creativity it requires. Each episode showcases how the participants brainstorm, formulate ideas and ultimately turn them into a song. They are tasked with writing lyrics and melody lines that evoke emotions and tell a story while appealing to the masses.

One aspect of the show that is particularly entertaining is the dynamic between the contestants. Each person has a unique approach to songwriting, and it's fascinating to see how they work together in a team or shut everyone out and compose alone.

Platinum Hit is a departure from other reality shows where contestants are expected to be competitive and ruthless. In contrast, the contestants on this show support and encourage one another, which is refreshing to see. It's evident that each of them truly wants to see their peers succeed and often lend a listening ear to help them complete their songs.

One of the most compelling aspects of Platinum Hit is the feedback the contestants receive from the judges. Because they are music industry experts, they don't sugar-coat their criticism but instead offer constructive and honest feedback. Whether it's the need for a better chorus or an emphasis on storytelling in the lyrics, the judges have a wealth of knowledge to share with the contestants.

Overall, Platinum Hit is a show for anyone who loves music and wants to see how songs are created. The contestants are talented, and it's intriguing to see how their individual styles and backgrounds shape each of their compositions. Whether you're a seasoned musician or a casual listener, this show provides insight into the art of songwriting and all the creativity and dedication it requires.

Platinum Hit is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (10 episodes). The series first aired on May 30, 2011.
