Move over, "American Idol" - Ryan Seacrest is branching out with a new music show for a rival network.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Seacrest is currently developing a music-themed series for NBC. While details are vague and it remains to be seen what role he'll play on the show, it is known that the project is not a traditional competition program.
“It doesn’t make a lot of sense to host a show competing with Idol,” Seacrest, whose current $15 million contract forbids him from appearing on another network until 2012, told the Hollywood Reporter in March.
“I think it’s possible [to be the face of another show in the future], but at this point I certainly have not even gone down that road because 'Idol' is in a great place, so I think we’re just enjoying that and we want to focus on that.”
