Janet Jackson is developing a music competition for MTV. The show, which has already started casting, will feature Jackson as she mentors a group of aspiring singers and dancers.
“It’s really about finding who’s the next Janet Jackson or Justin Timberlake or Usher,” said executive producer Dave Broome. “And 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.”
The producers are still figuring out the prize, but it could relate to Jackson’s “Rock Witchu” tour, which kicks off September 10th.
