Jennifer Lopez Shopping Musical Competition to TV Networks (Report)
The "American Idol" judge has teamed up with "Idol" creator Simon Fuller for a show featuring her and husband Marc Antony searching for undiscovered talent in Latin America.
Jennifer Lopez has joined forces with American Idol creator and executive producer Simon Fuller and his company, XIX Entertainment, for a new musical competition.
They are shopping a reality series, tentatively titled Que Viva, that would feature Lopez and her husband, singer Marc Anthony, searching for undiscovered talent in Latin America.
Lopez has been developing the project for some time, and according to published reports, Fuller addressed the idea of teaming with her on the competition around the time that Simon Cowell approached Lopez about joining X Factor. She turned down the offer in favor of Idol.
It's unclear what the news, first reported by Entertainment Weekly, means for Lopez's future on Idol. Her contract for the show, which she joined this season as a judge alongside Randy Jackson and Steven Tyler, is for only one season.
"I don’t know if I will do another season," she said recently. "I'm taking it day by day at the moment, and we’ll see what happens.”
Fuller's spokesman has not responded to a request for comment.
