Diddy and DJ Khaled Close to Signing Deal for New TV Show
Don't look now, but Diddy's heading back to the world of TV—and he's bringing the rap game's ultimate master of ceremonies, DJ Khaled, along for the ride. According to the folks at TMZ, the two rap luminaries are deep in negotiations for a new TV series on Fox.
The celebrity-focused site reports that the show will be a talent show called The Four, and it will feature Diddy and Khaled as judges. Mirroring the set-ups of nationally televised talent shows, the four judges will consist of a music mogul, a producer, a songwriter and "someone to perform onstage with." Diddy's the mogul and Khaled, who just turned up at the 2017 iHeartRadio Music Festival, will play the role of the producer. The other two judges have yet to be chosen, but at least one of them will be a woman.
The focus of the show will lie mostly on contemporary pop music, with a focus on hip-hop. As is usually the case with talent shows, the battle for the top spot will be an ongoing one, with contestants trying to take down those out front in order to secure the ultimate prize: the full support of an all-star cast of music industry superstars.
Diddy and Khaled have yet to sign their contracts, but at this point, they're reportedly pretty far along, so be on the lookout for the next Danity Kane, Day 26 or Fifth Harmony—if Diddy and Khaled sign on.
