The prolific reality television producer whose credits include American Idol and So You Think You Can Dance, is in talks with the CW to bring a singing competition to the youth-oriented network, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.
As first reported by TV Guide, Lythgoe’s potential series would revolve around finding the next big family singing group in the vein of The Partridge Family.
Lythgoe’s Nigel Lythgoe Productions would produce, with talks under way to bring Dance’s Dick Clark Productions into the fold as a production partner on the project.
CW president Mark Pedowitz said earlier this month at the Television Critics Association’s summer press tour that he was in negotiations for a vocal reality series to add to the schedule, and Lythgoe’s project could be just what the network topper had in mind as the network continues to expand its younger, female-skewing audience.
Lythgoe is also producing Secret Fortune, a game show at CBS with Donny Osmond attached as host.
