Is Ryan Seacrest Cheating On ‘American Idol’ With A New Music Show?

Making $12 million a year with American Idol apparently isn’t enough for Ryan Seacrest — the host is in early talks with NBC to develop a music-themed show. Referred to as “the Ryan Seacrest Productions project”, the show won’t be a standard competition show, nor would Seacrest necessarily host it. “It doesn’t make a lot of sense to host a show competing with Idol,” Ryan said back in March, though his contract with the Fox juggernaut bans him from appearing on any other broadcast network til 2012. Which is probably when The Ryan Seacrest Productions Project will air, so set your DVRs. [Via THR]
