Jennifer Lopez and her hubby have teamed up with American Idol producers to shop a new music show to find undiscovered Latin musical talent called, Que Viva. The show is still in the early stages of development, but they’re targeting network television. Here’s the concept so far: Jennifer and Marc want to tour Latin America to find the best of the best. I don’t know if a show like that would transpire to network TV. If it’s a husband/wife show of them looking for talent, then that’s a different story (could be very Lucy and Ricky)…but if it’s going to be all about Latin music, then they’re going to lose a lot of viewers. I know that Latin shows do amazing in a lot of markets, but to go network is risky. I know it’s not the same show or concept, but do you remember when VH1 did Viva Hollywood? What a FLOP! That show ate a fat Hot on a Stick. The concept was funny, but it just didn’t translate.
I say if they’re going to do Que Viva, they should go cable, but that’s just my opinion.
