Fallen pop stars might receive 'Second Chance' on new FOX reality TV show


By Reality TV World staff, 11/02/2002 

The Hollywood Reporter reports that FOX and Simon Fuller's 19 Entertainment are working on a variation on the "American Idol: The Search for a Superstar" theme revolving around former pop stars and one-hit wonders looking to resuscitate their careers. Dubbed "Second Chance," the show was dreamed up by Fox's alternative programming guru, Mike Darnell.

"When 'American Idol' was over (in September), I started thinking about whether there was a bigger evolution to this on another level on top of just doing another edition of 'Idol,' " Darnell said. "The music industry is a very tough business. The talent gets chewed up and spit out very quickly. Why not give them a second chance?"

FOX won't formally commit to the show until it has lined up the appropriate talent. Darnell emphasized that no formal overtures have been made, but the show is likely to target faded stars along the lines of such 1980s teen phenoms as Tiffany and Debbie Gibson.
