Reality TV producers over at MTV have apparently lured pop icon Janet Jackson into developing yet another American Idol-esque series.
“It’s really about finding who’s the next Janet Jackson or Justin Timberlake or Usher,” executive producer David Broome explains; however, I am a bit unsure as to why we would need to find the next Janet, Justin, or Usher when all three are still rather successful artists today. Perhaps a hint at Jackson’s fall from her pop star throne?
Either way you slice it, the upcoming MTV show sounds just like Making the Band to me.
Fearing blatant comparisons to its predecessors, Boome added, “We’ll find it from a pool of people who you wouldn’t typically find it from. We’ll go to YMCAs, church groups, local community centers and try to cast the show.”
Wow! A reality show with a heart? I doubt it.
