Jamie Foxx developing a reality show to “rebuild the rock star”

Oscar-winning actor Jamie Foxx is developing a reality TV show that would essentially rehabilitate a fallen rock star.

His idea, he tells the New York Daily News, is “kind of like a reality show. It’s rebuild the rock star. We take a person, who we all know, who may have fallen off his or her game. We rebuild them back up and show them perform their hits.”

While he said the show is currently being pitched to some networks, he declined to comment further. “I don’t want to jinx it,” he said. Foxx also said that he embraces the small screen. “I love television. I would never run from the idea of doing TV.”
