What's the story?

CASSADEE POPE: FRAME BY FRAME is a reality series starring The Voice winner Cassadee Pope as she goes on her first national radio tour. With the help of a personal footcam (small wireless video camera), the singer documents her thoughts and experiences during a six-week tour that includes 20 cities, endless radio stations, and a range of musical appearances intended to promote the music for her first album. Joining her is Jimmy Harnen, president of Republic Nashville Records, to make sure all goes smoothly. Pope enjoys some of the perks that come with being an up-and-coming singer under contract, but never forgets that building a music career takes endless hard work and sacrifice.

Is it any good?

The autobiographical series offers viewers a chance to see what happens after contestants win a major career-boosting contest. It highlights the fact that success is not automatic, and shows the rather unglamorous and grueling work that goes into making the most of the opportunities such a win offers them. It also demonstrates how young singers must learn to navigate the industry without letting go of their own personal creativity and style.

It's voyeuristic but mild, and Cassadee Pope fans of all ages will certainly enjoy watching her experience the highs and lows of her journey. Music and footage from her various performances are also entertaining. But young folks thinking about a singing career will also learn a thing or two about the expectations of the business, and what they have to do to make it to the top.
