Janet Jackson developing new reality competition series for MTV

By Christopher Rocchio, 06/19/2008 

Janet Jackson has apparently decided to jump into the realm of reality television.

Jackson is currently developing a new reality competition series with 25/7 Productions for MTV that will follow the singer as she mentors a group of aspiring singers and dancers, Daily Variety reported Wednesday.

"It's really about finding who's the next Janet Jackson or Justin Timberlake or Usher," executive producer Dave Broome told Variety. "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."

Filming for the currently untitled project will commence in the coming months, Variety reported.  Instead of being shot in a studio sound stage, Variety reported the show will be filmed on various street locations. 

Producers are also in the process of finalizing a prize package for the winner -- and Variety reported it could possibly relate to her Rock Witchu world tour, which begins September 10 in Vancouver.

Despite acting credentials in films from Poetic Justice to Nutty Professor II: The Klumps and television roles including Good Times and Diff'rent Strokes, Jackson has never starred in a reality series before.

The untitled series was created by Jackson and Gil Duldulao, with both serving as executive producers along with Broome, Kenneth Crear and Johnny Wright.
