Mark Burnett Searches for a 'Rock Star'

Published: 2004-06-14
Don't look now but yet another music based reality show may be coming to airwaves near you. Producer Mark Burnett – Survivor, Casino, and The Apprentice – is pitching the idea of Rock Star. The premise of Rock Star is to find a frontman for an already established rock band.

Rock Star is supposed to differ from the already popular Idol shows in more ways than musical content – which will be harder on contestants. It is not yet clear how a winner will be chosen or if the show will take on a global feel, but the band involved will have some say in the final outcome.

The show is still in the planning stages, but considering Burnett's success with programming thus far, it is only a matter of time before we see Rock Star on television.
