Kara DioGuardi’s Pretty Great, If Unsurprisingly Ego-Inspired, Reality-Show Idea
American Idol judge/songwriter-for-hire Kara DioGuardi is taking her televisual success to a new place—she told New York‘s Diana Scholl that she’s developing a TV show of her own. And it actually sounds like something that I would not only watch, but document kind of obsessively. Behold: Dropped!
“It takes the best acts that have been dropped and gives them a second chance. You look at Katy Perry, the Jonas Brothers, Alicia Keys, and Lady Gaga, they all have one thing in common: They’ve all been dropped from their labels … I was dropped. Think about how many times in your life you haven’t achieved one goal but you’ve achieved another one.” DioGuardi says the show would focus on music — and more! “[It’ll be] ‘You didn’t get up at five this morning to go to a radio interview. How do you think that’s doing to affect you?'” (Negatively, we bet.) So will she be the host of Dropped? “Oh, my God, now we’re getting into particulars … All right, maybe! I shouldn’t have opened my big mouth.”
Of course if things keep going the way they’ve been going for the record labels the potential castmember pool will get pretty gigantic. But I can think of so many people who would be great candidates for this show! It would be like Bands Reunited with less-embarrassing past hairstyles and fuller heads of hair in the present! Dear some network out there, please put this into production ASAP. (Just don’t let Kara do any voice-overs, OK? Because seriously, that quote up there made me think, “Ah, good old Kara. There’s no “DioGuardi” without “I,” right?”)Vulture Exclusive: Kara DioGuardi Shops New Reality Show, Dropped [Vulture]
