Jennifer Lopez is working on a new show, and it may have implications for the future of “American Idol.”
The new reality project featuring J.Lo and Marc Antony touring Latin America to search for musical talent will be pitched to broadcast networks by Lopez and "American Idol" producer Simon Fuller, reports EW.com’s Inside TV blog.
The working title of the project is "Que Viva," the story notes. The project raises the question of whether Lopez plans to remain on "American Idol," as she’s only signed through the end of this season.
It’s likely that "Idol" producers and Fox would like her to return, given the show’s performance this year, which is on par with last year’s ratings. It’s also unlikely that Fuller would work on another project that could undermine "American Idol.”
