Our agreement with CNN will allow us to reach a global audience, and enable us to unearth the best possible raw talent and sculpt them for stardom.

"While Sporting Legends will showcase heroes past and present, Aspire will create the heroes of the future. Our partnership with CNN dovetails perfectly."
