'American Idol,' 'SYTYCD' veteran brings singing competition to The CW
The CW is hoping to get into the variety competition business with the help of "American Idol" and "So You Think You Can Dance" veteran Nigel Lythgoe.
According to TVGuide.com, Lythgoe is in talks with The CW to develop a singing competition meant to find The Next Big Family Singing Group. The report compares it to "The Partridge Family," but the Jonas Brothers or Hanson are probably more timely comparisons.
Lythgoe may be recruiting Dick Clark Productions to serve as producing partner on the untitled show.
While "Idol" and "SYTYCD" have been wildly successful for Lythgoe and FOX, the producer has had less success with projects like "The Search For the Next Great American Band," "Superstars of Dance" and "American Juniors."
