It's official: Jennifer Lopez is indeed working on a new reality show.
The "American Idol" judge and her husband, singer Marc Anthony, have linked up with "Idol's" creator for a new project.
"Q’Viva! The Chosen" will feature the superstar couple traveling to various regions of the Americas over the course of three months in search of performers for "the ultimate live show celebrating Latin music, artistry and dance."
"This is a show for the 21st century with an unprecedented global and local story," Lopez is quoted as saying in a press release about the show. "The Latin culture is a tapestry that is rich in passion, tradition and artistry. We are going to places where all of this talent lives and wouldn’t have otherwise been discovered. This journey for me and Marc is going be exciting and groundbreaking.”
The series will be filmed in three languages and broadcast simultaneously in 21 countries throughout North America, Central America and South America. The project is a partnership with the pair and Simon Fuller' s XIX Entertainment.
Fuller, the creator of "American Idol," said the show will be groundbreaking.
“Latin music and dance is loved all over the world but there has never been a particular show or live experience that truly celebrates its beauty and splendor," he said. "Q’Viva is that show.”
